About Us

Combine a Paramedic & a Midwife, both in business, both Mamas, and both with a passion for writing and celebrating women, and you get The Empowered Mama Project. 

Here at T.E.M.P we are all about empowering and supporting women through pregnancy, birth and the early newborn days, through sharing our knowledge with you all, based on evidence, professional experience, and our personal journeys as Mamas. 

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.”


Who Are We?
