About Us

Parent From Heart is a group of like-minded moms passionate about positive parenting, honest motherhood, and creating a supportive community for intentional parenting.

With years of collective mothering between us, we have learned a thing or two about thriving (not just surviving) parenthood. We have been there, done that, and have the scars to prove it. We know that raising kids is a wild ride, so we passionately research and write about topics that will help other parents.

Not only do we have tried and tested tips for parenting success, but we also find the best research-backed strategies to save you time and stress. Our team of medical professionals fact-checks everything, giving you peace of mind and empowering you with up-to-date information.

Parenting is hard. Being a positive parent is even harder. It takes intention, bucketloads of patience, and some serious emotional regulation skills. Our mission at Parent From Heart is to offer as much support and honesty as possible to empower parents wanting to feel more confident in their parenting journey.

Parenting can be lonely and overwhelming…which is why we’re here! Let us be the village you need to learn, grow, and create a positive relationship with your kids.

Join Us

Whether you’re a new mom seeking guidance, a seasoned parent looking to connect, or someone who simply believes in the power of intentional and positive parenting, we invite you to join our community. Together, we can create a nurturing space where mothers can flourish, children can thrive, and families can grow stronger.

Our Experts

Gina Jansheski

After completing medical school and pediatric residency at the University of Arizona, I did a one-year fellowship in Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics at The Children’s Hospital in Denver.

Natalya Shvets

Expert Review Board / Medical Professional, diagnostic sonographer specializing in childhood development, I have dedicated the last 9 years to helping and guiding parents through the pregnancy and birthing journey at St. Francis Hospital.

I am also a hands-on mother of 3 who believes in research-backed strategies for parenthood. This is why I joined the team to review the articles published. I believe parents deserve to feel confident in the information they are provided.

Irina Padurar

Expert Review Board / Licensed in Early Childhood Education, I have been working with and around children for over 15 years. I have a passion for helping children flourish and providing support for their developing brains. I have personally witnessed how crucial the first few years of a child’s life are in developing their emotional intelligence and self-regulation.

I have operated a daycare for over 15 years and have interacted with a wide range of personalities. I have also taken additional courses to better navigate children’s emotions. With my own two children – a teenager and a toddler – I have applied my extensive studies and aim to assist others in doing the same.

Editorial Team

Contributor / When I’m not nursing cold, stale coffee, I usually can be found with the baby on my hip, barefoot, and racing after my two older kids. Thanks to a degree in psychology and a free-range childhood backing onto an expansive evergreen forest, positive parenting and play-based learning are my passions.
Editor-in-Chief & Owner / I'm a mother to a sweet baby boy who continually teaches me new things about the world and myself. My passion for supporting children and helping them grow led me to study early childhood development and psychology. I spend my summers volunteering in summer school. However, after having my baby boy, I realized that no amount of school or practice can truly prepare you for the whirlwind that is raising kids. Through countless hours of research, sleepless nights, and delving into multiple books on parenthood, I was inspired to create a one-stop information hub that parents can trust, regardless of where they are in their parenting journey. My goal is to provide parents with peace of mind and encouragement, knowing that we are all learning together every day.
Senior Writer / Mother of two with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Psychology. After spending time teaching, homeschooling, and immersing myself in Early Childhood Development, I realized that parents need all the help they can get. That is why I passionately offer support and educational content for parents as they navigate the highs and lows of raising kids.
Writer / A mother to two teens (and three dogs), I'm a Manila-based writer and editor whose work in print and digital content spans two decades. I advocate for mental health—in teens, particularly—having recently written a resource book on mental health for the Commission on Human Rights Philippines. I believe in using my words to help parents like myself see that happy, loving, and confident parenting relies heavily on strong mental health. I finished university with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, focusing on Communication Arts, from Ateneo de Manila University
Senior Writer / I am a proud, hands-on, homeschooling mom to a dynamic trio: two teen daughters with personalities as different as night and day and a son with boundless energy and a knack for science. I've studied Family Life, Child Development, Early Childhood Education, Parenting, Marriage, and Nutrition - and I'm here to spill the beans on all the insider secrets I've gathered along the way. I was also part of an incredible organization that worked with at-risk mothers, teaching them the ABCs of parenting, the magic of positive discipline, and the art of homemaking. At the University of the Philippines, I studied General Psychology, Adolescence and Adulthood, Family Life, and Child Development.
Writer / I’m a fearless leader of a pack of three boys, proudly known as Nana in our household. During the day, I’m a supermom, shuttling kids to school runs and soccer practices. But when evening falls, I switch gears. I channel my experiences into writing by crafting content from my beachside home office. My path from studying Consular and Diplomatic Affairs at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde to six years of dedicated writing has led me here. Now, I’m blending sandcastles with deadlines, all while sharing insights and joys of parenting through my writing.
Senior Writer / I am an elementary school teacher, freelance writer, and a busy mom who is seeking a simpler lifestyle away from the everyday "rat race." Having recently completed a cross-country move, I now live on a rural oceanfront paradise with my husband and two beautiful, energetic children. With 20 years of experience teaching young children, a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Education, a Master of Inclusive Education, and over a decade of raising my own children, I am passionate about sharing helpful information for parents and do so through my love of writing.
