With Kathryn Bell & Cat Henstridge

About this episode

This VetChat episode is part of our series on supporting and empowering women in veterinary, hosted by Kathryn Bell. Joining Kathryn is Cat Henstridge (or ‘Cat the Vet’ as she is known online), small animal veterinary surgeon and veterinary blogger.


In this episode, Kathryn and Cat discuss the topic of balancing work and motherhood. Cat talks through her own experience of being a vet with 3 children, her experience in her first few years as a new mother and having a very short maternity leave, and how she personally balanced it all. They also discuss being able to ‘switch off’ at home and the concept of the work-life balance issue. Finally, Cat also shares some of her own advice to new or expecting mothers working in the veterinary profession.
