About Dr. Mona

Being a mom can be overwhelming. I’m here to help you find the confidence and calm you need to bring you more joy into motherhood.

Hi there!

I’m Dr. Mona, I’m a Board Certified Pediatrician, IBCLC, and Mom.

When moms come to see me in my medical practice, they tend to have the same questions.

And the same worries.

How do I help my baby sleep at night? Do I have to help them?

I don’t know if I should breast or bottle feed? Or both?

Why is my toddler having so many tantrums? Is this normal?

I became a mom in 2019 to my son Ryaan and again in 2023 to my daughter Vera, and I experienced all the same thoughts and feelings many new moms do.

And it changed me as a doctor. 

Now I know the real questions all moms have are:

How do I know if I'm making the right decisions for my child?

How do I know if I'm a good mom?

Dr. Mona takes the complexity out of parenting and medical advice

She doesn’t speak textbook. She speaks textbook & mom.

Chelsea, Toddler Mom

Navigating Motherhood is Hard.

Nobody leaves the hospital with a manual on how to become a parent.

The birthing and bringing home baby classes only cover the basics like how to swaddle or change a diaper.

They don’t teach you how to deal with all the worries and uncertainties of motherhood. Or how to BE a mom. OR how it feels like you’re starting from scratch once you hit the toddler years.

Mothers need just as much attention as a newborn, because they too have just been born.

When we’re confused or overwhelmed, we do what any modern mom does: pull out our phones during nighttime feeds and ask Google for the answer.

Here’s the thing:

There’s a lot of misguided parenting advice and crappy information to wade through.

And the mom-forums are full of judgey comments.

That’s why it’s my mission to share balanced, well-researched parenting advice to lessen those big worries and help moms find more joy in motherhood

First time – and more experienced – moms love the insights and advice I share as a pediatrician.

They love following along BTS as I navigate life as a first time mom.

I hope you will too.

Welcome to a safe, trusted space to get parenting advice from a doctor -
who’s also a mom trying her best, just like you.
