Meet The Storytelling Postcard amazing experts
Dr. Yulia Wilk Goldsher, obstetrician & gynecologist and our Blog writer
My name is Yulia Wilk Goldsher and I live near the sea with my partner Dani and our 3 beautiful girls. I am a doctor. It defines me in many ways; as my profession, as a way of life and a state of mind. I love to know, ever since I was a teenager my mind was fascinated by questions about how our body works and that led me eventually to med school and later to obstetrics and gynecology. The more I study the more I understand that knowledge is strength. When we understand what is happening to us – physically and emotionally then we can take control and feel empowered to make the right decision for ourselves. I work in a big hospital and encounter girls and women at every age. I follow pregnancies and deliver babies, educate about birth control and treat different gynecologic diseases. I am also interested in female sexuality and think that it is an integral part of every gynecologic topic. This feels like an exciting adventure. I’m looking forward to share empowering knowledge and hear what is on your mind when we discuss together some feminine gynecologic topics.
