Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Masala Mommy?

Many people think that I am Masala Mommy. And although I proudly wear the badge of “Masala Mommy”—anyone can be a Masala Mommy. She is someone who has the right ingredients to experience joyful parenthood and she’s determined to build a family culture based on harmony, love and connection. She can handle the sweet, the spicy and…everything in between!

 

What is a Parent Coach?

A Parent Coach is a certified professional who can talk to you like a friend about your challenges, and aspirations about parenthood AND also give you constructive tools and roadmaps to help you achieve your goals! I personally specialize in Pregnancy through Early Childhood Development (up to age 6).

 

I think I am a great parent already, do I still need a Parent Coach?

The fact that you are an amazing parent is the mere reason why you may contemplate hiring a Parent Coach. You make your children a priority. Bringing joy and harmony into your family is important to you. Sometimes, we just need someone to help us discover fresh ways to achieve those dreams. Parent Coaching is not therapy—It’s creating a roadmap to take you and your family to the next level.

 

I’m pregnant. Is it too early to hire a Parent Coach?

Absolutely not! In fact, this is a great time.

When you get married, you hire a wedding planner.

When you buy a house, you hire a realtor.

When you plan to have a baby—the biggest adventure of your lifetime—you hire a Parent Coach!

 

How can a Parent Coach help me during my pregnancy?

Often times we get so wrapped up in the new baby that is on the way and taking care of ourselves physically, that we forget to nurture our own emotional and mental well-being. That sweet little baby inside feels your vibes, so it’s important to keep them positive and calm—which can be a challenge when you have a million things to juggle.  I’d love to support you on this journey in various ways—Relationship Strengthening (for you and your partner), Baby Registry SOS (a customized online registry based on your values and needs) & 4th Trimester Coaching (Breastfeeding, Pumping, Mommy Self-Care Planning, & On-Demand questions)—are some of the services I can bring to you. To find out more, let’s get connected.

 

Do I have to be co-located in order to receive parent coaching?

Absolutely not! In fact, a majority of parent coaching is done over the phone or via video-conferencing. I have helped Moms & Dads all across the globe thanks to technology. You can enjoy coaching services from just about anywhere–this is especially wonderful for new parents who are at home with their babies.

 

How do I know if Parent Coaching is for me?

Parent coaching is for you if you answer yes to any of the following questions:

Pregnant /New Parent:

  • I want to feel emotionally and physically prepared for my new baby
  • I want answers that are customized to my baby and my own needs and priorities–my family & friends can give me advice that works for them, but I want a plan that works for me
  • I want to make sure I’m purchasing the right products for my baby and what will work for my family and style
  • I want to learn more about myself and set goals and plans so I can be successful as a parent
  • I want to feel less stressed and experience more joy in myself and my family
  • I need support in answering all the questions that come up as I prepare for motherhood
  • I want to find efficient ways to organize baby items and schedules to create a more harmonious “4th trimester”

Parents of Kids 6 months-6 years old:

  • I want to identify and understand my Core Temperament (natural personality style) so I can nourish myself effectively in order to be a great parent
  • I want to identify and understand my child’s Core Temperament (natural personality style) so that I can communicate and connect with him/her effectively
  • I want to feel that my partner and I are on the same page, even if we have different Core Temperaments—which can lead to serious miscommunication
  • I want professional support to effectively manage: toddler tantrums, sleep schedules, power struggles, positive discipline, sibling rivalry, introducing a new baby, mindful parenting and/or creating a strong family culture that the kids will grow into for many years to come.
