Have you ever wished you could get expert parenting advice without leaving your couch? Thanks to a new service created by and for moms, parents can trade flipping through parenting books for video chatting with experts in real time.

MommyCoach is a new service that matches moms with a wide variety of parenting and lifestyle pros. These experts, most of whom are mothers themselves, are ready to answer questions about everything from childhood nutrition and education to stress reduction and sleep schedules.

Using a search tool, parents can easily navigate the site to find experts by topic, availability and hourly rate, which starts at $20. Users can also view an in-depth profile for each expert that includes a biography, client rating and calendar of available digital appointments.

To book a session, simply click on an open date and time. The only thing users need to participate in a session is a computer with a camera — which most come equipped with anyway.
