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
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 of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (UK).
I am married with three wonderful children and I am highly passionate about breastfeeding!
I am the brain behind Doctor KT page on Facebook, and the blog askdoctorkt.com. I write medical
contents (mostly on women’s health) in simple layman’s language, and I provide pro bono
e-consultations to my followers. I also promote healthy marital and parental 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:
Nature’s Superfood – A compilation of tips for successful breastfeeding.
The Stampede – Tales of love, trials and faith.
Wholesome Motherhood – A simplified guide to safe pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium.
