Ok. We’re just going to put this out there. All four of us mamas have had a HUGE crush on the beautiful Amy, for what feels like forever. And when she jumped onto our screens with that birth video, well, we soon amped up our ‘crush’ to full on ‘love affair’. Amy is mama to three divine little beings, and a hypnobirthing teacher and birth doula, founding Earthbound Babies. She has recently moved her family from Perth over to the Byron Bay hinterland, and we couldn’t be happier. Now living that little bit closer, we hope to meet in person one day soon, so we can goo and gaa over her beautiful children, and her gorgeous smile. Did we mention her husband plays guitar and can sing? Yes, you can officially start crushing now too. Read on to find out more about this amazing mama …
Emma Nolan is a midwife, photographer and mama from Brisbane who, in her own words “loves advocating for women and supporting them to make informed choices about their care so that they are empowered and confident mothers.” Emma’s stunning photography recently hit the headlines when her image of baby Harper, attached to his placenta with the word ‘love’ written with the umbilical cord went viral on social media. Because of that powerful image, Emma was contacted by Carry the Future, a not-for-profit organisation providing Syrian refugees with baby carriers – and asked to travel with them to Greece to document their work in April. I was thrilled to have the chance to chat with the beautiful Emma about birth, photography, her role with Carry the Future and how she’s raising the funds to get to Greece!
