All information on Baby Medical Questions and Answers is free. The answers to health questions are free.

It takes time and energy to maintain the site and to reply to the many medical questions I receive.

Sometimes, the information you receive will mean a visit to your own pediatrician isn't necessary.

Some of you have asked if you can give a donation to say thank you for the reassurance and peace of mind you receive.

I have set this page up so you can donate what you want if you

  • have been happy with the answer to your question
  • are grateful for other medical information for your infant or toddler
  • would just like to support this site

If you can't afford a donation, I am happy to continue providing information freely.

If you can afford it and a would like to make a donation to the site, please feel free to do so by clicking on the button below.

How much should I donate?

That is entirely up to you. A donation of $5 - $10 for a question would be very reasonable.

How do I make a donation?

Donations can be made using

  • PayPal
  • Visa
  • MasterCard

The system, operated through PayPal, is very safe and secure. I don't have access to any of your credit card details. Just click on the button below.

Thank you

Dr Maud

Remember that the information on this site is of a general nature and will not apply to every baby and every toddler. However, these are questions that parents ask me when they see me with their babies or toddlers and this is what I tell them. In those cases, I have had the chance to take a full medical history as well as examine the child. The information on this site is not a substitute for a full medical history and examination from your doctor.

Thanks for your "straight to the point" advice! I am very happy that you decided to add your wisdom to the internet for all to read. You made a very worrisome toddler's fever day into something a lot calmer.

Dear Dr.Maud, I had to write a thank you note for all the work you put into this site to make our life easier! We had many questions and worries but we found all the answers here very easily. You helped us to find a way to make our little boy eat again and calmed our worried minds when he was sick.. So much useful information, I recommend your website to all moms and dads I know. Thank you so much, you are fantastic! Have a wonderful day! :)

Thank you so much. I have taken ... to three different Dr.'s and you are the first to answer my questions in a manner that I can understand. You explained everything in English for once, and told me things that none of the other Dr.'s did. Thank you again. I really appreciate your help.
