Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, B@@bs & Babies

An Inside Look: Modern Mommy Boutique

I am so excited to bring you An Inside Look: Modern Mommy Boutique.  I admire Talisha's courage at opening a new business!  Besides being a big fan of many of the items that the she is carrying from personal experience; it is so wonderful to be able to introduce you to a person and a store that is all about helping mothers and their "sweet peas".


Modern Mommy Boutique : A gathering place for Mommies and their Sweet Peas...This fabulous new store is located at the Shops at Chandler Fashion Center, near Dolce Salon & Spa and Yogurtland.

Owner, Talisha Heiden

Can you tell me a little about yourself and how you got into the retail business?
My name is Talisha Heiden, my husband of 5 years is Bryan and our 2 year old daughter is Kendall.  My husband and I have known each other since we were in 1st grade!  We are both 3rd generation native Arizonans and love it here!  My husband is the youth director for the Boys and Girls Club and we moved to Chandler 5 years ago.   I was the buyer and manager of Mothers' Milk in Scottsdale for 5 years.  I loved getting to meet new moms and the chance to support and encourage each other as we shared our similar stories.

Where did the inspiration for "Modern Mommy Boutique" come from?
I have always been a fan of hard to find items and I have always loved to shop at smaller  boutiques.  I feel that people get lost in huge chain stores.  I know there is an overwhelming amount of "gear" for motherhood, and I have what I feel are the most helpful items... plus some really fun stuff too!  Mothering is such a personal journey, and I love being able to talk and relate to other mothers. 

What is your vision for the boutique?  
My desire is for the store to become a mecca for moms: a place for information, support and resources.  I want it to be a place where anyone can come for help, advice, products and hopefully be able to find what they are needing. I am really seeking a community feel, with all of the classes and  meetings offered.  I remember how nervous I was when my daughter was an infant - all I needed to feel better sometimes was being able to talk to someone who's been there.  I had many challenges nursing my daughter for the first 6 weeks and had to seek a lot of help.  I enjoy being able to use those experiences to help and encourage other mothers! There will be a children's area, and a private nursing room and I just want the store to be a place that everyone can come use and enjoy.

What kind of merchandise will you have available for purchase?  Will you be renting any equipment? 
I will have a little bit of everything a new mommy may need. I have baby clothing from size preemie to 24 months, with a few collections that will go up to size 4. You will be able to find baby blankets, swaddle blankets, diaper bags, nursing/maternity clothing, nursing pajamas and award-winning toys.  I will be selling and renting breast pumps and baby scales by both Medela and Ameda, as well as all replacement pump parts and specialty feeding items.  There will be the largest selection of nursing bras in Arizona, from size 32A-48K.  I also wanted to offer an extensive selection of baby carriers that were available to try on. I worked with my daughter since she was 5 weeks old, and I am such a huge advocate of baby wearing! Every carrier in the store is a brand that I have used myself and loved.

What kind of services or classes will be offered? 
There is a private nursing area in the store.  Debbie Gillespie, a certified lactation consultant will be available for appointments at the store as well.  There will be monthly "Breastfeeding 101" classes I recommend that a new mom would attend prior to delivery.  There will also be breastfeeding support groups, varying guest speakers, meetings, and special events that will fill our calendar. 

What are you the most excited about?  
FINALLY opening the doors!  This has been a long process, but we are finally here.  Honestly, I am so excited that I have gotten the special opportunity to meet you Krystyna! I love your passion and excitement and it is this kindred spirit that I love in the mothering community.  I am really excited about seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones.
*can you feel me blushing*

Thank you, Talisha, for your time and for taking the opportunity to open a new business in "this economy".  We are so honored to be able to teach our Bradley Method
® classes here and contribute to your vision of a supportive mothering community.
