Hi, I’m Emma!

In case we’ve never met before, let me tell you a little bit about me…

I’m a paediatric Occupational Therapist with over 12 years experience, and mum to a whip-smart 6 year old, a very cheeky little 4 year old, and a beautiful little baby.

I started Brightest Beginning after not only seeing just how challenging being a new parent is through my work, but experiencing it first hand for myself as well.

We all want to raise happy, healthy, confident kids. But figuring out how to do that when you’re completely exhausted, confused and second guessing yourself at every turn can be one of the biggest challenges you’ve ever faced.

But I know it doesn’t have to be that way…

A little bit of guidance, support, and good advice goes a very long way. And that’s what Brightest Beginning is all about.

Simplifying your life as a new parent. Making it a little easier. A little less uncertain. A little less stressful. And giving your little one(s) the incredible start to life that we all want to give our children.

You could say it’s about giving you and your little one the Brightest Beginning on this brand new adventure 😉

Through videos, articles and courses, I’ve helped tens of thousands of new parents on their parenting journey so far.

With everything from early development, sleep, teething, eating, toileting and more. And I hope I can help you too!

What makes us special?

The difference between Brightest Beginning and other parenting advice you might see is that every single tip, trick, and piece of advice we provide is based on years of experience by qualified professionals.

If you’re a new parent, you’ve probably noticed that as soon as your baby arrives, everyone is suddenly full of advice and opinions on absolutely everything. While it all comes from a good place, with the best of intentions, 99% of it is conflicting, and it’s impossible to know what to listen to, and what to… umm… maybe try some time in the future.

And when that happens, Brightest Beginning is where you can come to get the answer. Advice that’s clinically proven, based on research and up-to-date best practices. No old-wives-tales. No viral trends (that often do more harm than good). And maybe best of all, a place to come when you’ve heard 14 pieces of conflicting advice and just want to know which one to follow.

My favourite thing about this work is…

Seeing the reaction from parents when they’ve been struggling for days or even weeks with a particular problem, and one little piece of advice fixes it for them almost in an instant. That look of pure relief, like a weight being lifted, is the most rewarding thing in the world.

So, if you’re ready to simplify your life as a parent and give your little one the best start to life, we’re here to help.

Take a look at our courses, each designed to help with the
most common challenges parents and children face in those early years.
