Babywearing is the practice of keeping your baby and toddler close to you in a baby carrier which allows you to continue with your activities and provide comfort and security for your baby. Babies are born to be worn and it is an extremely useful parenting tool for both mums and dads and extended family members.

I am an Approved Babywearing Consultant with the Babywearing Practice and completed my training through the Babywearing School Australia in 2014. I am also fully insured to provide consultations both in an individual and group setting.
During a babywearing consultation you will learn about anatomy and development of your baby, how to wear them in an ergonomically optimal position and what different carrying options you have. You can try out almost every available carrier that allows you to wear your baby in a comfortable and correct ergonomic position, so you can narrow down what carrier is most comfortable for both of you and suits you and your needs best.
If you want to learn how to carry in a woven or stretchy wrap or a ring sling, we will find the best suited product for you and practice step by step techniques with a special babywearing demo doll until you are confident to try it with your baby. You will also learn what accessories are useful to wear your baby with ease in any weather.
We have pregnancy consultations available as well which are perfect as a gift and to allow you the best possible start on your babywearing journey.
