A full, inviting experience to discover how babywearing supports and nurtures continued overall development and learn about the basic carrier types 

Babywearing (1).png

Babywearing is a skill that has been around for centuries but only recently has it become more of a 'go to' for new moms. It was however (and still is) the norm in African villages as families naturally and instinctively keep their babies close by wearing them using blankets, towels or cloth. We now however have all sorts of carriers and brands to choose from. It can all be quite overwhelming however, my hope is to make it simple for you. Whatever stage you are at, that's where we will start.

 

​Baby wearing is a skill that can be learned and practiced and it gives you a practical way to gain confidence as a new mom or mom to multiple children.

It provides a bonding opportunity as well as a way to respond to baby's need to be held and carried during the day for longer periods of time, while you continue other tasks.

It is a way to check in with your little one, respond easily to baby's cues and support babies physical, cognitive, social and emotional development.

 

Feeling overwhelmed or intimidated by Baby wearing?

I am here to help and support you! Lets embrace this skill together and feel empowered and confident to keep our babies close.

How can I support you?

These are the ways I can support you in-person or virtually in your babywearing journey:

  1. *Book a fitting : This is a great option if you need help with a specific carrier/wrap. 30 mins virtual or inperson to get it figured out and feel more confident in wearing

  2. **Book a consult: This is perfect if you need more time for more than one carrier/wrap or have more specific questions. This is an hour 1-1 video or in-person experience.​​​​

***Please email me directly to schedule a fitting or consult, with subject line BABYWEARING FITTING or CONSULT

Please also include your baby's name and age/birth date and what carrier or wrap you are needing help with as well as your main questions, concerns or needs so that I can best respond to your email and support you moving forward.
