We are currently running In-Person (Outdoor, Socially Distanced) Consultation, Online Consultations via video call (FaceTime, WhatsApp, or Zoom), online Drop-In’s live, every Tuesday at 10.30 am, in our Facebook Group & Sling & Carrier Hire (including FREE online fitting appointments), plus free phone calls to help you narrow down your sling/carrier options.
Our group Drop-In Sessions are currently suspended.
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.) We are able to help you with front & hip carrying at a drop in session. If you would like to learn how to carry your baby on your back, please book a Private Consultation or Back Carrying Workshop. **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 issues. 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; or to show how to use a carrier you already own, in a safe & comfortable way.
You can also hire & return slings/carriers at the Drop In Sessions.
