Meet Dr. Hala Sabry

Dr. Hala Sabry founder of Physician Moms Group

Dr. Hala Sabry is a Board-Certified Emergency Medicine physician, the founder of Physician Moms Group (PMG), and a super mom of five- with two sets of twins!

Being a mother of five has given Hala a unique expertise and skill set to help other parents in the medical field. After years of infertility, she found that balancing motherhood and a career in medicine was challenging.

She frequently fought through fear, negative self-talk, and a recurring desire to quit her job in medicine, and she knew other mothers and physicians must have experienced the same struggles. She attributes having a solid support system (PMG) and life coaching in helping her manage her thoughts and reaffirm her “why.”

She has built one of the largest physician communities in the world (Physician Moms Group), now with 115,000+ members!  She’s also on the board of a new startup company to help connect patients and physicians.
