Reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian is getting ready to give birth to her third child in the next couple of weeks. Having grown up in a brood of six children and now quickly expanding her own, Kourtney knows the importance of finding the right paediatrician. She shares her tips on finding the right doctor in a recent interview.

The eldest Kardashian sibling appeared on the cover of the latest issue of Fit Pregnancy and she shared some valuable pregnancy tips to readers of the magazine. She shared that for her, she was lucky enough to be able to enjoy the services of the same pediatrician for herself while she was growing up and for her kids now that she started her own family. She knows however, that not every new mom is as lucky. She listed down the traits that she values in a good pediatrician.


Kourtney shared that even when she sends late night correspondence to her doctor, she gets a response right away. According to her, this is one of the traits that she values most in her doctor. The attention given to her and her children's needs even at odd hours is a major plus factor.

Open -Minded

The opinionated mom shared that she needs a doctor who will talk things through with her even if she makes suggestions or has ideas that are not necessarily what the doctor suggested at first. She said that it's important for her doctor not to get offended by her suggestions. Kourtney has shown in numerous occasions on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" that she sometimes has some radical new age ideas that don't always go over too well with the people around her. She also takes control of things like her own and her kids' nutrition and other health practices.

A Good Listener

Kourtney emphasised how important it is for your doctor to listen to your concerns and take them seriously. She said that the parent is always the first one to notice when there's a change or some source of concern regarding their children because they are the ones who spend the most time with the kids. She says that it's important for the doctor to listen to what the parents have to say.

Luckily, mom of six Kris Jenner chose a good pediatrician for her kids and Kourtney was able to retain the same doctor's services. With these tips, her fans can be guided into finding a suitable doctor for their own kids as well.
