Our Story

Rooted in the wisdom of moms:
Across generations and around the globe

Mommy’s Bliss was founded by Roshan Kaderali, a mom and pediatric nurse, midwife and doula who had used Gripe Water to ease infant colic and fussiness for years while working in Scotland. When she moved to the U.S., she was astonished that the “magical” Gripe Water formula she relied on wasn’t available here. So she set out to create the first all-natural Gripe Water in America and Mommy’s Bliss was born. As our company has grown, our mission hasn’t changed: help moms everywhere bond with their babies by creating effective, trusted products that incorporate the wisest ingredients from around the world.

Roshan, Founder

Roshan Kaderali is originally from Tanzania and has lived permanently in the United States for more than 35 years. When Roshan began her nursing practice in the U.S., she recommended Gripe Water for infant colic and fussiness. Working with an FDA-registered cGMP (current good manufacturing practice) laboratory, Roshan developed the first all-natural Gripe Water for the American market. From there, Roshan developed many other products based on her years of experience working with infants and new parents.

Yasmin, CEO

Yasmin Kaderali grew up learning from her mom about the “miracle of life”, surrounded by the realities of childbirth and infant health through her mom’s maternity center. After attending college at the University of California, Davis, Yasmin spent two years living in Central America volunteering with programs focused on women and children’s human rights. Inspired to learn more and make a difference, Yasmin pursued an MPH & MBA and continued this work in the non-profit sector for five years. Her path led her back to Mommy’s Bliss and she is now CEO of the company. Both Roshan and Yasmin share the dream of helping children and women all over the world to live in bliss, with food, good health, respected human rights and peace.
