With a gentle, loving and soothing nature, Elizabeth’s methods are credited with breaking cycles of sleeplessness, emotional exhaustion and frustration for babies and their parents.

Following her heart, Elizabeth starting offering her unique talent in teaching babies and toddlers to self-settle and found herself inundated with requests for help.

Rebecca Sparrow has earned a living over the past 25 years selling touch lamps, working as a nanny, a travel writer, a television publicist, a marketing executive, a magazine editor, a TV scriptwriter, a newspaper columnist and a secret shopper (once). In her spare time she is an Ambassador of War Child Australia – a not for profit agency dedicated to giving aid to children affected by war and The Pyjama Foundation which sends “reading angels” into the homes of foster children.
Rebecca is the author of three best-selling novels, The Girl Most Likely, The Year Nick McGowan Came To Stay and Joel & Cat Set The Story Straight and the non-fiction book Find Your Tribe (and 9 other things I wish I’d known in high school).
When she’s not acting as a sherpa to her children or trying to convince her husband to watch Offspring with her, Rebecca works as the Managing Editor of Mamamia Publishing, writes books and eats frozen grapes.
Mia Freedman is the editor and publisher of Mamamia.com.au, the website she founded in 2007 when she left traditional media and didn’t quite know what else to do next. Having built her career around creating communities of women in magazines (as Editor of Cosmo and then Editor in Chief of Cosmo, Cleo & Dolly) and then a blink-and-you-missed-it stint in commercial TV, Mia wanted to work in a medium that was fast and authentic. So she moved to online and began Mamamia.
In 2012 she launched Mamamia Publishing, which aims to bring fresh, engaging e-books to women everywhere. Mia continues to write a newspaper column that appears in News Limited Sunday newspapers – The Sunday Telegraph in NSW, the Sunday Herald Sun in Victoria, The Sunday Mail in Queensland, the Sunday Mail in South Australia and The Sunday Times in Western Australia. She also appears on The Today Show every Wednesday morning. Mia has written three books, The New Black, Mamamia: A Memoir Of Mistakes, Magazines & Motherhood and Mia Culpa: Confessions From The Watercooler of Life.
Mia’s husband Jason is the CEO of Mamamia (the marriage came before the business) and they have three children, a dog and two ducks who visit during winter.
