Rebecca Thompson

Rebecca N. Thompson, MD, MSc, is a family medicine and public health physician who specializes in women’s and children’s health. She is currently working on a community memoir that weaves her own story of multiple pregnancy losses and life-threatening complications into the narratives of her patients, colleagues, and friends as they face the unexpected in motherhood and medicine together. She lives in Portland, Oregon, where she spends her free time wandering through green spaces, playing unreasonably complicated board games, repurposing found objects, and accompanying her husband and children on all-weather adventures with too much gear and too little sleep. Please visit her website to learn more about her professional background and current projects, including THE UNEXPECTED: A COMMUNITY MEMOIR OF MOTHERHOOD, MEDICINE, RESILIENCE, AND HEALING, forthcoming from Harper One.
