Specialty: Mompreneurs, Publishing
Why we choose her: We met Parul shortly after she launched her bestselling book, Juicing for Healthier Families. It wasn’t a bestseller at the time, but we knew Parul was headed for success. Since then, she has shined up her resume (International Bestselling Author on Amazon, Forbes Coaches Council Member, a contributor for Forbes, the Huffington Post and Thrive Global, featured on ABC Channel’s morning show Sonoran Living, and more) but her approach to coaching is as grounded as ever. A few of the SisterMom experts are contributors for her latest book, When You’re DONE Expecting. Check it out here. If you’re looking to launch a business or a book, Parul is your expert.

She has a plethora of certifications (Certified Postpartum Doula, CAPPA Faculty Postpartum Doula Trainer, Certified Lactation Educator™, the Executive Director of the Lactation Educator Program for CAPPA and a Board-Certified Lactation Consultant) but, most importantly, she’s who we want to have around when there are hormones and babies involved.

Aditi Wardhan Singh
Specialty: Cultural Senstivity, Positivity Coach
Why we choose her: We met Aditi through the When You’re DONE Expecting book community. We love her passion to educate the parents and children of the world on different cultural perspectives. Aditi has quite the intercultural background herself – being of Indian decent, brought up in Kuwait, and now making a life in the US. She is the Founder and Editor in Chief of Raising World Children Magazine, which features articles from adults and children around the world. She has a positive, gentle approach, and strives to understand your personal perspective. If you’re looking to learn more about raising culturally-sensitive kids, Aditi is the expert for you.
Specialty: Birth Support and Education
Why we choose her: Kelly is the birth doula in Arizona. Everyone kept singing her praises all over the internet, so we decided to contact her and bring her on board. When we interviewed her, we quickly understood what all the fuss was about. She’s obviously very knowledgeable about the birthing process, but it’s more than that. Kelly just makes you feel like you can do anything – including give birth to a baby naturally. She has a cool, caring approach. If you’re looking for a birth doula (in Arizona) or want quality information on childbirth, Kelly is the expert for you.
Specialty: Breastfeeding Support
Why we choose her: Our CEO, Shannon, found Lori after a very rough start to breastfeeding (so many tears!). Shannon was desperate to keep her breastfeeding relationship afloat. She consulted multiple pediatricians and lactation consultants, but sank deeper into despair after each consult failed to provide relief. By the time she found Lori, her son was off the breast, and being fed pumped milk through a dropper. Lori quickly discovered her son was tongue-tied, and the path to blissful breastfeeding was slowly reestablished. Lori has a relaxed, confident approach that works perfectly for struggling new mamas.
Shaweta “Shay” Vasudeva
Specialty: Mind-body connection, holistic nutrition
Why we choose her: Shay came highly recommended by another SisterMom expert, so we decided to give her a call. Her resume includes a Master’s degree in Psychology, as well as numerous other credentials (Black Belt, Tai Chi, Qi-Gong, and Internal Martial Arts Practitioner, Personal Fitness Trainer, Certified Nutritional Therapist and college professor). Originally, we thought Shay could help kids with special needs formulate specialized diet plans. It turns out Shay can help everyone increase focus and well-being, so we decided not to limit her to one population. We found her especially knowledgeable on the ketogenic diet, as well as effective weight-loss strategies. When it comes to health, she believes a positive attitude is essential, and we think her psychology degree combined with her fitness and nutritional training makes her the ultimate mind-body powerhouse. She has a spirited, uplifting approach that’s perfect for moms who need motivation, as well as knowledgeable support.
