Emma Wright The Body Confidence Coach

Helping mothers create a body confident world for themselves and their kids

As mums, all we want is to have happy, healthy kids who have a good relationship with their body.

Being a parent is a mine-field. It can feel like we’re constantly judging ourselves (and being judged) as our kids go through similar life events that we went through. All we really want is to have happy, healthy kids. And to feel confident in the way we act and the way we speak with them. 

But how can we help them if we suffer from the same negative inner-voices nagging us when we eat or exercise? 

We don’t need to be perfect to change our body confidence future. With the right support, community and practical knowledge you can learn to:  

  • Accept your body regardless of shape or size
  • Have happy, healthy kids who have a good relationship with their body
  • Feel confident in what to say when a child says “I’m fat”
  • Take actions that make a meaningful difference to you and your family

I’ve spoken to hundreds of mothers about body image and their kids. Supporting them in having positive conversations that benefit their children. So as a family they don’t get stuck in the downward spiral that body shaming and negative self-talk brings.

I talk from expertise and personal experience.

Emma Wright Profile

When I was nineteen, I told my parents I had bulimia. They didn’t believe me. Or at least believe it was the life-threatening problem that it was. They told me I was beautiful and asked if I ‘was over all that now’ and we hardly spoke of it again.

My parents were great in so many ways. But they didn’t know how to speak about bodies, food and long-term health to their kids in a way that left us feeling positive or protected from our culture that values thinness and promotes weight-loss. Having now recovered I want to give other smart, dedicated parents like you the language to talk about bodies that my folks never had.

Though parent talks, my Facebook Community and my online course and book I’ve helped 100’s of parents be powerful, present and prepared when it comes to their kid’s long term health.

I’m here to help modern parents navigate the piles of misinformation out there – and offer sensible, evidence-based solutions.

Later on, I had the chance to do better for my own children. The day my first child was born I promised her I wasn’t going to let her hate her body like I hated mine. She was going to be slim and fit and everyone was going to know I was doing an amazing job. But the older she got the more we’d fight about what she ate. 

And frankly, I was terrified her chubby body was going to get bigger and all the dangers I thought came with that plagued me. The harder I policed the more resistant she got. It was awful. 

And then I started to see guilt and shame and fear in her eating. Hiding, sneaking, gobbling. I had no idea what to do. I was already doing all the things I thought I should be doing.

So I went into research mode and what I learned shocked me. 

Raising body confident kids eCourse
  • I learned that health and weight are not nearly as linked as we’ve been lead to believe. 
  • I discovered that eating disorders don’t come from psychological weakness, they are a very normal biological response to certain environments. 
  • And the environment created by so many of our health and wellness rules actually fosters disordered eating.

Knowing these things changed everything!!

I put what I learned into practice and about a year down the track the most magical thing happened.

My daughter came to me and said “Mum, there’s a girl in my class who said she hates her fat tummy. But I know her body is a good one because everyone’s’ body is.”

I knew in that moment I made good on my promise. That I wasn’t going to let her hate her body like I had hated mine.


I’ve taken all my advice, guidance and knowledge for you and created the 10,000 Mothers Club. It’s a safe space where you get practical and real-life support.

As women, we often struggle with our body image. And we feel so sad and powerless when we see the same thing happening to our kids. But how can we change things when we’re struggling ourselves? 

The things we’ve been taught, to limit food and increase exercise, don’t work and are causing stress for the whole family. 

The confidence to change your body-confidence future and the future of your family starts with a simple action.

And that action is to join The 10,000 Mothers Club.

A community of like-minded women who want freedom for themselves and their kids from body shaming. Space where you can build connections, be supported and find empowerment to grow in body confidence.

Create a body confident world for you and your family

Hearing Emma speak was a light bulb moment – I realised that I was unconsciously creating ‘guilt’ food habits for my children. In the age of too much information and so much pressure, it’s refreshing to have guidance from someone who has been there herself and is willing to share her poignant journey. Emma is an inspiration in this minefield of positive body image.
