Babywearing Peer Supporter Workshops

  • Do you work with new parents?
  • Do you love slings and helping new mums and dads carry their babies?
  • Bamboozled by the range of slings available?
  • Unsure how to use slings, how to help parents choose the right one for them and use it safely?

This workshop is perfect for doulas, midwives, antenatal teachers, breastfeeding counsellors, slingmeet and sling library helpers, or anybody who works with new parents and wants to support them on their babywearing journey.


Learn to carry a baby using the 4 main types of sling

During this fun, informative and practical one day workshop, you will learn to carry a baby on your front using the 4 main types of sling available (wraps, ring slings, Meitais and buckle carriers).

You will also learn about the advantages of using a sling for baby and parents, and how to do so in a way that is both comfortable and safe.

At the end of this day you will have all the knowledge you need to not only choose and use a sling for yourself, but to help new parents do that too, in a way that is both sensitive and empowering.

This one day workshop covers:

  • History/background of babywearing
  • Advantages for baby/parents
  • Baby's back and hips anatomy and development and how to carry ergonomically
  • Babywearing safety
  • Different types of slings available and their pros and cons
  • Demoing and trying out the different types of slings (front carries)
  • How to advise babywearing parents sensitively

These workshops are run under the Born to Carry initiative, and give you access to insurance.


Babywearing group

The cost is £120 per person and includes an extensive handout and access to a private facebook group.

I am slowly winding down the babywearing side of my work, to make room for new developments.

I will not be advertising workshops, but I am happy to run them on demand if there is a group of 6-10 people who are interested.

If you would like to attend or organise one of these workshops, please contact me.
