Child Carrying Peer Supporter Workshop


  • 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 sling manufacturer, 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 on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.  Diss is on main London to Norwich train line.  Discounts apply if you book in a group!  You are very welcome to bring your baby with you.

I require a £25 deposit to secure your place and our next workshop is on Monday 3rd June.
