Expert Advice

At Brightest Beginning we’re passionate about providing you with expert advice based on clinical best practice and evidence based research. No myths, old wives tales, or unproven fads.

Fun

Being a parent is meant to be fun! While we can’t promise there’ll never be another ‘tear your hair out moment’, or times when you want to scream into your pillow… We’ll help you enjoy the journey and make sure you don’t miss out on the joy that comes with being a parent.

Simple. Practical. Effective

We’re here to make parenting easier. That means giving you practical advice that works. We keep it simple, solving your parenting problems without making it complicated or confusing.

Hi There!

I’m Emma!

I’m a mum of 2 (one girl, one boy), and a Paediatric Occupational Therapist with over 10 years of specialised experience.

I’m passionate about making life easier for new parents by sharing practical tips and advice that make those common (often stressful) challenges easier to navigate. And because we all want the best for our little ones, my goal is to help you do this in a way that’s also best for your child. It’s all about doing what’s best for both you and your beloved little one, not sacrificing one over the other.

I started Brightest Beginning to provide a place that parents can rely on to get reliable, practical information that takes the guesswork and uncertainty out of parenting, and gives them the peace of mind that they are giving their little one the best start to life.

One place for all your parenting advice

Everything you see on Brightest Beginning is created by experts in their respective fields – from Occupational Therapists, to Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, and Paediatricians.

When you learn from us, you’re getting the most up to date information available, based on what is proven to work.

And we’re also parents.

We know how it feels to be physically and mentally exhausted, trying to do the very best you can with the energy you have. Those feelings of uncertainty, questioning whether you’re doing the right thing for your little one, wondering ‘is this normal’, and even questioning whether you’re good at this whole parenting thing (p.s. the answers are YES, YES, and YES!).

Which is why everything we create – from free blog posts and videos, to our paid courses, is created with the challenges that come with being a new parent in mind. It’s designed to help you solve the problems you’re struggling with in a way that’s quick to consume, easy to follow, and actually works.
