Hi there!

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

When new 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?

Is my baby gaining enough weight/sleeping enough/hitting the milestones?

When I became a mom to my son Ryaan in 2019, I experienced first-hand all the things us new moms worry about.

And it changed me as a doctor. 

Now I know that the real question all new moms have is:

How do I know if I’m making the right decisions for my baby?


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.
