Do you work with new parents? Do you love slings and helping new mums and dads carry their babies, but feel bamboozled by the range of slings available, unsure how to use them, and how to help parents choose the right one for them and use it safely? Then come to my babywearing peer supporter workshop! 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.

Here are some of the things people have said about this workshop
“Loved it, you’re a great speaker, a real natural. Enjoyed learning from you”
“I found the theory and science very helpful. The practice with each carrier gave me ideas on how to use them”
“Very good, very enjoyable and informative. I enjoyed both the practical and theoretical elements. I feel I have good knowledge to help someone get started on their babywearing journey. I think I know the best way to communicate with babywearing parents”
“Has given me the confidence to use the skills and knowledge I have. A very good overview of a varied range of carriers and some good theory and history”
“I thoroughly enjoyed this workshop. I enjoyed the teaching style and the historical and scientific context. The practical side was invaluable. Thank you Sophie!”
