Babywearing Consultant

Carrying your baby is one of the most natural and important things that you will do. Let me, your babywearing consultant guide you through the choices and options available to you.

I offer 1:1 babywearing consultations and babywearing support. These offer you the chance to gain focused guidance and expertise to suit your needs. It also means you can learn at a pace that suits you and your baby.  

During your babywearing consultation this means time to attend to your baby’s needs in a private, relaxed and supportive environment. 

 In the first weeks of your baby’s life being in your arms is the only place that they will want to be. Even as they grow, your arms will be their safe place. Using slings and carriers to help you hold baby makes sense. You will be more comfortable, baby will be more supported and you will have your hands free to do important things…like eating and drinking! 

With so many slings and carriers on offer, and so many different ways to carry baby it can often be overwhelming. You always want to do the best for your baby and make sure you are doing things safely. A babywearing consult allows you to be confident that what you are doing is safe, secure and comfortable for you both.

We have four types of consultations on offer. These can be either in person (around Welwyn, Herts), at your home (within 15 miles of Welwyn, additional charges apply) or online.

I also offer a sling library service through my page Welwyn Slings. You can hire a carrier of your choice to see if it could work for you and your family.

This session would be great if you know what you need and want to try 1 or 2 baby carriers.

Or perhaps enough time for fitting check with your own carrier. Help making your carrier more comfortable and secure.

If you wanted to learn how to feed in your sling or carrier, learn a hip carry or an alternative finish with a wrap.
