Hi! I’m Dr. Mona

I’m a Board Certified Pediatrician, IBCLC, and a mom of two.

I know the ups and downs of becoming a mom and raising kids.

I help moms ditch the worry and second-guessing so you can find more joy in motherhood.

Being A Parent Is Tough

Nobody goes home with a manual on how to become a parent to the tiny human you’ve welcomed into your life.

Plus, there is so much misinformation and so many extreme opinions out there.

It’s hard to wade through the judgement and biased information to find balanced and practical parenting advice (#DoctorApproved)…

Until now!

“A wealth of knowledge. She presents information free of bias while speaking from the heart. As a new mom of a newborn, she has provided me with much needed reassurance as well as fact-based education.”

“So much great information, excellent for health professionals but also easily understandable for everyday parents.”

This is a safe space where you can find reliable, trusted answers
to all your parenting questions.


From feeding and diapering your newborn, to feeding and potty training your toddler –
there are no silly questions (and only smart answers) around here.
