What is a Drop In Session?
At our “Drop In Sessions” you can peruse a selection of our slings & carriers, & try them on if you’d like to. You can also hire slings & carriers from a Drop In Session. You do not need to make an appointment, but you can have a “Mini Consultation” (£10/20mins) on a first come/first served basis. This is an open group session & your time with our Babywearing Consultant may be limited if the session is busy. (If you would like a quieter, more focussed environment, you may prefer to book a Workshop or 1:1 Consultation.) **Drop In Sessions may not be suitable for you if you, or your baby have any medical concerns such as Hip Dysplasia, Talipes, Low Muscle Tone, Prematurity, Low Birth Weight or other medical issue. In these situations, please book a Private Consultation. If your baby was premature or had a low birth weight AND they have been fully discharged fron Medical Supervision, we may be able to help at a Drop In. Please contact us to confirm before you come along.
If you would like our advice or input into choosing/using a sling or carrier, you can choose from the options below:
*Safety Check – (FREE – 5 minutes – 1 sling/carrier) – This is for you if you already have a sling or carrier, you know how to use it & you would simply like us to help you confirm that you are using it safely.
*Mini Consultation (£10/up to 20mins/1-2 slings/carriers) – This session allows us to try 1-2 slings/carriers, to compare & contrast them, & try help you find a comfortable option.
You can also hire & return slings/carriers at the Drop In Sessions.
