Emily Murray

Hand in Hand Certified Instructor

I’m a mom of two, Co-Moderator of the Hand in Hand Parent Club, Founder of Birth Roots Center for Community Supported Parenting in Portland, Maine, and creator of Facilitating Community, a unique training for those who facilitate small groups.

I’m glad you’ve found your way to Hand in Hand Parenting as I did when my older child was entering school years.  Since their birth, I felt there was a large gap between the parent I wanted to be and the parent that was coming out. Hand in Hand has helped me to close that gap and now I am honored to support other parents as they grow and develop into the parents they want to be.

You can find me in the Parent Club where we cultivate a supportive community and pour in a wealth of resources to support the members. I can also be found at Birth Roots teaching and facilitating some of our postnatal classes, particularly our Toddler Parenting programming.  Check out the Events Page here at Hand in Hand or you can visit www.birthroots.org to see my local and online classes or email me directly here.

I look forward to supporting you in this important and challenging work and changing the culture around parenting so there is more support for families in the future.

Managing all this on top […]
