My name is Dr Khadijah Folake Tijani (maiden name – Sanni) aka, Doctor KT.
I grew up in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.
I graduated from University of Ibadan in 2009 and completed my housemanship at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan in 2010. During my NYSC year, I was posted to Federal Road Safety Corp, Oyo State sector command, Eleyele where I became the Co-founder of the staff clinic that was commissioned in 2011.
I worked as a medical officer in the private sector and then briefly with the state government until 2013. I was also a resident doctor at UCH for a very brief period before I relocated to Saudi Arabia in 2014.
Between 2014 and 2019, I worked as a resident doctor in the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Shaqra General Hospital, Riyadh and then, Security Forces Hospital, Makkah.
I am an associate member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (UK) and working towards becoming a full member in the near future (in shaa Allaah). I am also an international affiliate of the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health (UK). I am currently on a career break and I’m loving my full-time mom job while embracing my second passion – writing!
I have three wonderful children and my favourite part of motherhood is breastfeeding. I run a support group on Telegram – Breastfeeding Support Lounge. This is a platform created to motivate and support mothers towards achieving optimal breastfeeding goals.
From my Facebook page to my official blog, I create medical contents (mostly on women’s health) in simple, layman’s language. I also promote healthy marital relations through my signature “Abu and Umm Fulaan” posts. The aim of my blog is to make the world a healthier place, one post at a time.
I am the proud author of three books:
1. Nature’s Superfood – A compilation of tips for successful breastfeeding.
2. The Stampede – Tales of love, trials and faith.
3. Wholesome Motherhood – A concise guide to safe pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium.
