Author, Educator, Speaker


Hi there, I’m Elly,

author, international speaker and creator of the Becoming Us whole family approach to parenthood. I have been called the “Parenthood Pioneer” for my big, hairy, audacious hope - to see a better beginning for our next generation of parents.

People say nothing can prepare parents for parenthood, but I’m here to tell you that’s just not true. And we need to stop saying that and start doing it, because parents need - and deserve - to be as well prepared as possible for their “new normal” life with their gorgeous, precious baby.

I’m proud to say Becoming Us, my guide to the stages of parenthood, has been embraced by parents, grandparents, best friends, helping professionals and caring organisations as the go-to guide for partners wanting to be prepared, able to support each other, and grow together through the parenthood adventure, so their whole family can thrive.

As it should be.

Elly speaks a truth that comes straight from the heart.
