Hi, I'm Emily!
I’m a morning person so even though my night sleep is broken, I already have a fire lit inside me. I usually have an idea of what I want to eat, maybe it’s a special morning and we’ll make scones or waffles, the kind of baking that sees the kitchen covered in flour, the kids covered too.
I love being with people, it completely energises me. Meeting new people excites me and fostering my old friendships is my medicine. I also love the retreat of my home, I’ll pop the kettle on and make us a cuppa. I find absolute peace, joy and creativity in cooking and sharing food.
I've clawed my way through the deep dark woods of new parenthood
But I’ve also felt the intoxicating joy of staring at my babies and wondering how they can be so beautiful and funny. The tenderness of them falling asleep in my arms or running to me when they’ve hurt themselves. The pleasure of watching them grow, get muddy and make friends. The connection to other parents. The continued devotion to learning about myself and this world. The remembering of who I am.
I value community care & I want to make sure you never feel the distress & isolation I experienced in my first postpartum.
I’ve always cared for young babies, children and their families. There’s something so special about being in deep support of another family unit, it gives me huge pleasure.
I’m so grateful to find work that encapsulates all of this and where I can shower families with love, food and support. I’m ready and excited to be a part of your community, I can’t wait to meet you!
