You’re Pregnant, and:


✔️ You might be feeling apprehensive about becoming a mother- how can you possibly prepare or know what to expect??!

✔️ It seems like there’s a lot of information available about birth and some practicalities of parenting (like how to swaddle or bathe your baby), but you feel unprepared for motherhood itself

✔️ You feel concerned by the idea of not knowing what to do once baby arrives, or by trying to get motherhood ‘right’

✔️ You’d like to feel emotionally, practically, and psychologically prepared to become a mother

Or, Your Baby is Here! As a New Mum, Can You Relate....


Motherhood is essentially nothing like you expected. It's equal parts AMAZING and equal parts the hardest thing you've ever done.

✔️ You expected to feel blissful and fulfilled but instead have been surprised that there have bad or stressful days too

✔️ You can care for baby, but find it hard to take care of yourself too

✔️ You feel guilty that you're not feeling the way you 'should' be feeling

✔️ You're not feeling confident as a mother yet, or you feel like you're not good enough as a mum

✔️ You feel alone in your thoughts, stresses, or fears


Hi, I'm Emma!


I'm an experienced Clinical Psychologist. I'm an approved supervising psychologist, a member of the Australian Psychological Society, and a fellow of the College of Clinical Psychology.

I live in Townsville and love the tropical weather- call me crazy, but I rarely run the air-conditioning. I love cranking hip hop music while I’m driving.

I'm a mum of 2 young boys and know first hand that it can be challenging to become a mother.

I love working with women as they become mothers. It is a really vulnerable time for women, and having good support is really important.

I developed this course so I could try and reach as many mums as possible giving them the same opportunities for support as my individual clients. It’s my way of trying to support expecting, new, or returning mums in a new and creative way.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?

New mum, expecting mum, struggling mum, or veteran mum alike - this course is for you if you're ready to level up your self-care, manage stress, and take some time for YOU, so that you are the best mum you can be.


CAN I DO THIS COURSE IF I HAVEN’T HAD MY BABY YET?

Yes!! What a great way to prepare for motherhood.

Getting across the content before baby means you’ll be more likely to hit the ground running when they are here. And, you get lifetime access to the content- so you can return back to it whenever you need!


HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE MATERIALS?

How does the lifetime of the course sound? You'll get lifetime access to the course for as long as it runs. 


WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME TO SCRATCH MYSELF, LET ALONE DO A COURSE?

Aah yes, having a baby. The times where it’s hard to shower, get dressed, or have a warm cuppa- let alone fit anything else in.

Even if you’re stretched thin- you can do this course. First of all, it’s accessible. You can listen to the audio files whilst you’re feeding your baby, or taking them for a walk.

Secondly, it’s in small pieces. Most lessons are under 10 minutes. There’s room to watch a lesson after baby goes to bed (before you crash!), or to watch if someone else tends to baby for a few minutes. Or maybe you listen to a lesson over dinner. You can do this!


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO GO THROUGH THE COURSE MATERIALS?

This program is self-paced - so you could go through the materials in as little as a day, a week, or a month! Since you'll have lifetime access to the course and materials, you'll be able to move at your own pace and return to the course when it suits you.


IS THERE AN APP FOR THIS COURSE?

If you have an iphone or ipad, then yes! You can download the teachable app for free here.


IS THIS A PARENTING COURSE?

No, this is not a course on how to parent or care for your baby well. This course is about supporting your development into motherhood, so that you can:

  • Care for yourself and baby at the same time
  • Develop YOUR caregiving style
  • Manage the stresses of motherhood
  • Become more flexible and confident with how you approach motherhood


WHY DOES IT COST $249?

Motherhood is a time when finances can become a concern- and I've been there too.

Many, many months went into researching, writing, filming, and editing this course, on top of years of study and experience. I took time away from my family and paid work to be able to create this course. There are also significant (hidden) expenses that go into creating an online course.

I have brought you the best of research, clinical work, and experience to empower your wellbeing in motherhood. On top of this, you have lifetime access to the materials. So the better question may well be:

Why is it only $249?

It is a lot cheaper than seeing me for therapy, that’s for sure! And, there is nothing else out there quite like this program.

And here’s the thing: You matter. You are important. You are worth an investment in your wellbeing.
