Who are we?
The idea started when Eli was a first time mum, doom scrolling at 2am wondering why her baby wouldn't go to sleep and if it would last forever. Everyone stand they had the answer but it was behind gates of green and way out of a first time mum on maternity leaves budget. Eli took to her network of other parents, some who had been round the block a couple of times and some who were still fresh in the thick of it. It was here that Eli not only found comfort in hearing other peoples experience but she also found valuable knowledge.

Meet the Founder/Editor
Hey fellow parents, I'm Elishia the founder and editor of The Parents Hood AU.
I'm a serial daydreamer, gardener, jack-of-all-tades (master of none), foodie and a first time mum.
The past five years i've been working as a social worker. Working with disadvantaged families, children with trauma and parents from all different backgrounds. My passion for helping parents grow and see their children thrive is what drives me. Its been hard work and yet also so rewarding. However, a common theme i have always noticed is the lack of community, education and experience shared. Becoming a first time mum myself, that deficit only became more apparent when all i desperately wanted was reassurance and connection to know i wasnt alone and what i was going through would pass or could be overcome.
From there The Parents Hood was born. My goal is to work closely with parents and professionals, drawing on my own experiances, to help empower parents with knowledge and experience to see their children thrive.
I cant wait to see where this next chapter of my life takes me and it's a privilege to walk beside you on yours.
