Who is Dr Philippa Kaye?
Dr Philippa Kaye is a GP who works in the NHS and private practice. She’s always lived in London, apart from 3 years outside the capital studying for her medical degree at Downing College, Cambridge.
After her time at university, Philippa returned home and studied at Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ medical schools for her clinical training.
What’s Philippa’s expertise?
Dr Philippa has trained in paediatrics, gynaecology, care of the elderly and acute medicine, psychiatry and then general practice. She’s now a regular on TV, becoming the go-to family doctor for advice on Coronavirus on breakfast TV.
Can you explain Philippa’s connection to MadeForMums?
We’ve worked in partnership with Dr Philippa for many years, requesting her medical expertise and advice on lots of the topics we cover.
She’s featured in a couple of our MadeForMums pregnancy podcasts – talking about the accuracy of gender prediction tests and common questions to ask the doctor when you find out you’re pregnant
What else does Philippa do?
Probably Dr Philippa’s biggest ‘role’ apart from being a super busy GP is that of being a mum to 3 children.
The advice she gives is always practical and takes into account everything else going on in a busy parent’s life when they realise their child is unwell / or they themselves are unwell.
Her book Your Pregnancy Week By Week has received a 4.5 star review on Amazon, with one person saying: “I bought this, with a trillion other books the second I got that little red line!
“I have to say this is the book I turned to time and again throughout my pregnancy to see what little baba was up to and what to expect. It was a really good useful reference book. I would recommend it.”
She’s also ambassador for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, and a TV and radio journalist. Perhaps her most unusual TV appearance was carrying out a smear test live on the Victoria Derbyshire show.
