Mommy and Me

Advice from SHE-E-O: “Having your own business is no walk in the park. In order to get where you want,  you have to put in the time, energy and effort.”


“A mother’s love is extremely important for the healthy emotional outcome of her children,” says therapist, Janet Esposito.

In most cases, it is the mom who is the primary caregiver, and how she loves her children greatly affects their lives. Acknowledging this, 28-year-old Channey Wong launched her business ‘MommyandMe’ to provide a support system for mothers, that’ll help groom them into the best molders they can be for their children.

Channey’s parents separated a few years after her birth, as such she grew up with her mother.

“If there is one thing I learned growing up, is it takes a village to raise a child, and a mother should never have to do that journey on her own. My mother worked hard to ensure I had a great education and to instill the best principles in me. She has been one of my biggest motivators in my venture.”

Her business, ‘Mommyandme’ started when she became pregnant with her first born.

“I faced my challenges being a first time mom, finding the right doctors, finding clothes and personal care products, baby items more so support. One of those challenges included mental health, sadly motherhood does not come with a manual. I am thankful I had a great team to be there for me. But then I asked myself how many more moms are out there that are having these same struggles with no support system, thus the birth of Mommy and me.”

It started two years ago as an online store that offers curbside pickup in Georgetown or delivery to your doorstep. It has grown into much more however, now offering clothing and personal care items for both mom and baby; tips to moms and daily encouragement and support for parents especially, moms.

“Mommyandme was founded on the idea of assisting struggling moms from their pregnancy throughout motherhood. It is not just a business for us but a safe space for moms to talk and seek support when needed. Our business is not a large scale company therefore we are able to give each customer the attention and time they desire necessary for them to browse and select from our online store. Our sales representative are available 24hours to assist.  Which physical store or online store in Guyana can you get that kind of service? Also each month a % of earning is used to help a mom or family in need.”

This business is one that Channey holds close to her heart, as she is passionate about helping others and bringing out the best in other people.

I’m very passionate about helping others and bringing out the best in other people. “It gives me a great sense of achievement to see others happy, grow and learn in whatever way I can help them. What really is my purpose if I can’t share what I have? I aspire to be happy and to make others happy.”

In the near future, Mommyandme hopes to establish a household name in Guyana, having a website and a storefront for the business, as such creating job opportunities for young mothers.

“For a woman to have her own business is for her not just to have a source of income but also to have freedom and independence being be able to manage her own time and set her schedules. Having your own business is no walk in the park. In order to get where you want, means you have to put in the time, energy and effort. At first it was overwhelming, so I decided to get my entire family involved since they were my main support system,” Channey said.
