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.

Happy parents (with happy, healthy kids)
are what we’re all about

“Thanks so much for sharing your awesome content! I came across your YouTube channel and find your info so helpful! You're seriously amazing. Giving over information in a thorough and non judgmental way.”

Anna Craven

“I joined Bright Beginnings a few weeks after my second baby arrived. There were a few things we were struggling with, particularly around tummy time and play. We couldn’t really get him to do tummy time without a lot of stress and tears. And whenever we tried to play he just turned his head away and seemed to be really disinterested. Bright Beginnings helped us almost instantly once we started doing what Emma teaches! A few changes to our tummy time routine was all we needed, and it turns out he doesn’t hate playing with us after all, we just need to time it right!”

Prue McAuliffe

“This literally answered all my questions as a new mum, plus a bunch I didn’t even know I had yet! It was like Emma was reading my mind. Every time I had a question I would watch the next video and she would answer it. This is right up there with my favourite purchases since my daughter was born.”
