About Dr. Emma Svanberg

Dr. Emma Svanberg, aka Mumologist, is an award-winning clinical psychologist, speaker and campaigner with expertise in attachment and perinatal psychology. She has two decades of experience working with parents, parents-to-be, caregivers and professionals supporting parents. Emma has psychology in her veins – her father was a pioneering psychologist who set up one of the first infant mental health projects in the UK.

Her early career enabled her to work with parents from diverse communities and helped her to see the complex interplay of different factors – cultural, racial, and socioeconomic – that lead parents to struggle with their mental health. Her own experience as a mixed-race child with mixed-race children of her own, has left her particularly keen to explore the different influences on our parenting.
