072: The Beauty of Authentic Catholic Healthcare with Dr. Kathleen Berchelmann

In this episode, Dr. Kathleen Berchelmann discusses the importance of authentic Catholic healthcare and her journey to co-found MyCatholicDoctor.com.

Dr. Berchelmann is a pediatrician, wife, mother of seven, and co-founder of MyCatholicDoctor. She is commonly consulted by families desiring a faith-based approach to depression, anxiety, ADHD, ADD, and autistic spectrum disorder. She speaks nationally on vaccines derived from aborted fetal tissue, also known as human diploid cell line vaccines. In 2018 Kathleen and her husband Greg decided to make MyCatholicDoctor a reality, using telemedicine, a network of faithful physicians, and innovative healthcare reimbursement models to make Catholic healthcare available to all people. Her work has been featured in/on: Time Magazine, NPR, FoxNews, Parents Magazine, Good Housekeeping Magazine, KSDK News Channel 5 St. Louis, Fox2 St. Louis, KMOV News Channel 4 St. Louis, the St. Louis Post Dispatch, multiple radio shows, and hundreds of other print and online publications.

During her years in health-media, Dr. Berchelmann became increasingly involved in Catholic Media, including a regular weekly slot on the SonRise Morning Show with Sacred Heart Radio. Questions flooded in from families desperately seeking Catholic health care providers they could trust. Eventually, Greg and Kathleen started a website called CatholicPediatrics and hosted a nationwide list of pediatricians who incorporate their Catholic faith into their practice of medicine. But people wanted more– they wanted Catholic psychiatrists, women’s health specialists, end-of-life care, and more. This led Kathleen and Greg to found MyCatholicDoctor.
