Emily Morgan is a single mum, by choice. The experience of motherhood took an unexpected turn when, whilst pregnant with her second child, she was diagnosed with peri-natal depression. It took this fiercely independent mum and forced her into a state of dependency, which ultimately led her down a track of coming to understand the concept of Informed Parenting. Emily is now committed to helping parents not just have access to different parenting ideas and philosophies, but to critically analyse theories surrounding parenting to make choices, not based on popular theory or someone’s ability to sell an idea or even peer pressure, but on cold, hard fact.

At the time this podcast launches, we’re just about to head into the Easter long weekend. We all have our own way of celebrating Easter, but what does it look like around the world? Alexandra Tselios from gives us a global glimpse of Easter.
