- Shanèy Vijendranath is a young mother who faced several challenges through pregnancy and motherhood
- As a result of challenges faced and the lack of resources available, she started a brilliant business that aims to empower mothers with trustworthy information

Many women portray the image of blissful pregnancy and motherhood, taking everything in their stride with natural ease.
For most mothers, this isn’t the case and the journey to raise a child can be filled with numerous challenges and loneliness.
Shanèy Vijendranath knew this all too well, having battled with post-natal depression.
SowetanLIVE reported that these challenges served as the inspiration for her to launch her business, MomSays, which aims to provide young mothers with a reliable educational online resource.
The mother of three initially started an online blog a few years ago called, You, Baby and I.
Vijendranath said, “After two years of blogging I realised that You, Baby and I was more than just a blog. It became a tribe of moms who trusted each other’s opinions.”
Vijendranath found there to be very limited data available reflecting parental-based consumer trends.
MomSays aims to bridge the gap as it provides unbiased opinions on solutions and products for children ranging from newborn babies to 10-year-old children.
Briefly.co.za understands that Vijendranath needed to show determination and resilience as her idea was initially shot down by investors.
Vijendranath said, “No matter what the initial investors said, I knew there was a need for a reputable platform where moms could recommend and ask each other for advice”.
The many female followers of MomSays are very grateful to the brave entrepreneur for her perseverance in bringing the resource to the nation.
