Mount View High School shines a light on Domestic Violence - A speech by Amy Johnson

Good morning everyone and welcome to our 2019 White Ribbon ceremony.

Before I speak, I would like to acknowledge the tradition custodians of this land on which we meet today, and I would like to extend my respects to those past, present, and future. This land, always was, and always will be yours.

Welcome to EM. Is For You!

I’ve been deliberating for some time now on how to best share this dream with you…Should it be with an epic eye-catching video? Should it be a big fancy online launch campaign? In my dreams it was with one huge rock concert...(maybe later)...But for now I’ve decided to share it the best way I know how. With words. I love words. So let’s do this thing.

Emma Thomson created Mums Empowered, a health studio in Newcastle and online hub empowering new mums to take some much-deserved “me time”, to feel better from the inside out. She launched her new e-book 'The Baby As Your Weight Workout' in coordination with Postnatal Depression Awareness Week in November 2014.

HUNTER HERO: Emma Thompson, Mums Empowered founder

SUNDAY marked the beginning of Postnatal Depression Week, an initiative aiming to create greater community awareness of antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety.

More than one in seven new mothers and one in 20 new fathers are diagnosed with postnatal depression (PND) every year in Australia, with more than 100,000 total cases recorded in 2013.
Health and fitness coach Emma Thompson became aware of the risk of developing PND after she experienced the debilitating effect of depression and anxiety in her 20s.
She was hospitalised following her struggle with mental health and warned by her doctor that her history of depression left her susceptible to PND.


Mother of All Things


On International Women's Day you'll be talking about mummypreneurs at the Sydney breakfast event Cereal Entrepreneurs.
What will your message be?
That you can be successful as a mum in business if you always keep perspective. At the end of the day, the one thing you can’t get back is your time, so take your time. It’s not a race, it’s a ride. Remember to always weigh up your “worst case scenarios” when making decisions in business, your family and your health are always more important, and don’t beat yourself up on the tough days.
