Meet the Mommy Whisperer!

For over ten years, Lyss Stern – founder of DivaMoms – has become a leading source in the Mommy space, exposing her network of 500,000-plus of influential women to the best in brands, products and services geared toward moms across the globe.

After the birth of her first son, Jackson, Lyss — a former style columnist for The New York Sun and correspondent for Cookie Magazine — saw a void in the marketplace for moms who had embraced the demands of parenting but refused to surrender their stilettos. Her mission: to help mothers, like herself, be the best they can be for their families without abandoning their own identities. In 2003, Lyss officially launched DivaMoms, a luxury lifestyle network geared toward bridging the gap between a glamorous pre-baby lifestyle and post-baby responsibilities.

Nearly a decade later, Lyss has created a premier domain for both information-seeking moms and established commercial brands. Her website, which offers readers regular columns like The Lysst — a rundown of mommy must-haves, has grown to receive more than one million hits per month. DivaMoms has become an in-demand platform for Mommy-driven products and services, which Lyss has single-handedly built by organizing high-end events connecting luxury brands, such as Fendi and UPPABaby, with an elite group of women.

In addition to her work with DivaMoms, Lyss has co-authored best-selling book, “If You Give a Mom a Martini,” offering her expertise on Mommy Me-time to women everywhere. The book, which has recently been optioned to become a motion picture, features contributions from celebrity moms like Kelly Ripa, Christie Brinkley, Melissa Joan Hart and more. The Long Island-native, and soon to be mommy-of-three (sons Jackson and Oliver will welcome a baby sister this winter), is also the co-creator of the new NickMom short-form series “Story Time For Moms.”

She also wrote "Motherhood is a B#tch," a guide that tackles the toughest issues facing moms today and empowers you to regain your once fierce and fab self. In the end, you'll be happier, healthier, and hotter than ever. "Motherhood is a B#tch!" is the modern mom's bible for dealing with the day-to-day chaos with style and grace. It's written for the stressed out working mom and the harried stay-at-home mom, who have sacrificed their lives, careers, bodies, and sanity to become moms. And, honey, it's time to take it all back!

Lyss can often be seen offering her parenting expertise to television audiences for networks like Fox and on programs including NBC’s Today Show and CBS’ This Morning. Her commentary has also been featured in national publications such as Crain’s New York Business, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post. Lyss also prioritizes giving back to the community, which she focuses on through her involvement with a variety of organizations, including The Jewish Museum, The Hassenfeld Center and The Max Cure Foundation.
