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.

Why developmental milestones are so important

In the first 6 months, your baby should develop foundational skills that will prepare them for crawling, walking, eating, play, writing, emotional regulation & stability and much more.

Delays in reaching those early milestones have long-lasting effects that can stick with your little one for months or even years.

But by the time developmental delays and issues caused by delays become noticeable, they are often difficult to correct. Things like…
  • Flat spots on their head
  • Refusal to do tummy time (which delays the progression of so many other key skills)
  • Poor motor skills
  • A weak neck
  • Thumbs that stay turned in, making it hard for them to hold things

Doing everything you can to help your little one’s development from day 1 is the best way to put these worries to rest.

Here’s how Bright Beginnings will help

Picking up, holding and carrying your baby

These sound like small things, but so many new parents have questions or are confused about how to pick up, hold and carry their babies.

In Bright Beginnings you’ll learn how to do each of these things safely, and in ways that actually help stimulate your little one and assist with development.

Learn how to do tummy time properly

So many new parents struggle with tummy time:

  • When to start
  • How often to do it
  • Different techniques to use at each age and stage of development
  • What to do if your baby doesn’t like tummy time (ways to adapt your tummy time activities to gradually build up your little one’s comfort levels and tolerance)
  • Understanding what’s normal at each month, and what to do if your bub falls behind

Teach your baby to roll over independently

Rolling over independently seems like a small thing, but it’s actually an incredibly important milestone. This is their first step into exploring the world around them by themselves!

Once your baby can roll over independently:

  • Their risk of SIDS is reduced
  • They start developing other muscles in their back, neck and hips that they’ll need for other crucial skills like sitting and crawling
  • It helps them improve their body awareness and coordination

Teach them to sit by themselves

Once your little one learns to sit up independently it opens up a whole new world to them!

  • Sitting allows them to look around and see everything around them – which leads to a happier, more content baby
  • Studies show that sitting up has a huge positive effect on their ability to learn about objects
  • It also allows them try new types of play
  • Once they can sit, you can start playing games and activities to prepare them for crawling

Learn how to play with your little one

Play is a really important part of your baby’s development for so many reasons, including:

  • Fun! Play time should be a joyous experience for you and your little one
  • It’s one of the key ways in which we bond with our babies
  • Creating a secure attachment, that forms the foundation for healthy emotional regulation as they grow
  • Toys are also a huge part of play, and assist in your little one’s development in a very big way. But it’s important to introduce the right toys at the right age, which is why I give my specific toy recommendations at every stage

What you get inside Bright Beginnings

Detailed video lessons with everything you need to help your baby’s developmental progress at each month, from 0-6 months

Each month contains a video packed with examples that shows you exactly what you need to do with your little one to help them develop and never miss a milestone, plus tips and tricks to make your life as a parent easier.

You’ll have age-appropriate activities and games at every age, that build on the last and help your little one grow. No more second guessing or wondering what they should be doing, and no more feeling like you’re stressing your baby trying to do things they have.

Quick reference guides

As a new parent, we both know time is precious! To save you coming back to re-watch the videos, I’ve created quick reference guides for each month. You can print out the guide for each month and keep it handy to give you a quick reminder of everything you need to know.

Audio versions of every module

Each month contains a detailed video with plenty of examples. But sometimes it’s hard to sit down and watch. So you also get audio only versions of every lesson so you can pop them in your ears and listen in at your convenience.

Toy recommendations

Inside each month’s lesson you’ll also get a list of my favourite toys that I recommend for that age. These toys are safe, fun, age appropriate, and help your baby reach those crucial developmental milestones!

If you’ve ever looked at toys for your little one and felt confused about which toys are best for them, wonder no more :).

about Bright Beginnings

Elena Jones

I just love this course so much! To the point, full of useful information, easy to watch lessons even with a new baby. Thank you so much!!!

Maryka Stidham

Really great and helpful! I liked how the goals of each age are presented and the added ways to help your baby progress. The toy charts and how those toys aid development are super helpful as well!

Meghan Stevenson

“I felt like I had no idea what I was doing when my son arrived. It felt like a constant guessing game and I was stressed all the time, hoping I was doing the right thing. This course was absolutely amazing and completely changed my experience. Little things that we found stressful and difficult became easy and fun almost instantly after I started doing what Emma teaches. I finally felt confident as a new mum. I can’t recommend it enough!”

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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What ages does this cover?

This course is for 0-6 month old babies.

My baby is already 3-6 months old, will this still be helpful for me or will most of the content be irrelevant?

Yes! Each module in Bright Beginnings builds upon the last. And just because your little one is older, doesn’t mean you don’t need or won’t use content from earlier months. Let’s say, for example, they are struggling with tummy time. You may need to go back to an earlier month and use techniques from earlier months to help build their strength before doing the activities recommended for their current age. This applies to every developmental milestone. If your little one is slightly behind where they should be for their age, or struggles with something in particular, it’s very common for you to need to jump back to an earlier month in the course and use the techniques shown there.

I’m pregnant, can I buy the course now and use it when my baby is born?

Yes, definitely. Your access isn’t time limited, so you can buy now and use it whenever you are ready.

My baby was born premature. Is Bright Beginnings a good fit in this case?

Absolutely! You will simply need to adjust the timing of the milestones and activities based on how early your baby arrived, which I teach how to do in the first video in the course.

My baby has a medical condition that impacts development. Will this help?

Unfortunately Bright Beginnings is not suitable if your little one has a medical condition that impacts their development. The milestones and activities in Bright Beginnings are based on a neurotypical developmental timeline and are therefore not suitable. In this case I recommend seeking medical advice to get tailored recommendations for your baby.

How long do I have access to the course materials after purchasing?

There’s no time limit on your access to the course. You’ll get access to all of the materials as long as the course exists.

Will the course work on my device?

Bright Beginnings is accessible on both desktop and mobile devices through any web browser. It will work on any device with a fully functional web browser and internet connection.

What happens if I need tech support?

If you’re ready…

  • To feel totally assured and confident that you’re doing everything you can to help your baby reach their developmental milestones in their first 6 months.
