  • Do you love slings?
  • Do you work with new parents? 
  • Would you like to help parents carry their babies safely?
  • Would you like to learn more about the different types of slings?

Are you a doula, or a midwife, a childcare provider, an antenatal teacher, a breastfeeding counsellor, or a sling library helper, or would you just like to support parents on their babywearing journey?

This one day workshop will enable you to carry a baby on your front using the 4 main types of sling available (wraps, ring slings, Meh Dais and Soft Structured 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 the skills and knowledge you need to choose and use a sling for yourself, but also to help new parents to do that too, in a sensitive and compassionate way.

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
  • Child Carrying safety
  • Different types of slings available and their pros and cons
  • How to demo different types of slings (front carries)
  • How to advise babywearing parents sensitively

The cost is £95 per person

I run these workshops regularly from my home in Roydon, Diss.  I normally require at least three individuals to be able to run the workshop so if you know anyone else who would be interested in training, then please ask them to contact me also.  You are very welcome to bring your baby with you.

The next provisionally date for a workshop has been set for Wednesday 13th February 2019.  I require a £40 deposit to secure your place.
