Do you have a passion for babywearing? Do you find others are drawn towards you for carrying support? Or have some experience but want to gain more knowledge? Are you thinking about setting up, or helping at, a sling library? Maybe you’re a health professional or birth worker, wanting to add more tools to your toolkit? Or are you an experienced wearer who is interested in delving deeper into this many-faceted parenting experience?
Do you want to build a solid foundation for your babywearing roots? Eager to grow in new directions? Are you open to new ways of thinking, challenging preconceptions and moving outside of your comfort zone? Do you want an information-packed day which is both intensive and fun?
If so, you’ve come to the right place!
I provide rich and varied training opportunities for individuals, organisations, professionals and businesses, which are tailored to the individual participants needs, and have an organic development. No course is ever identical, even if they have the same name!
I currently offer two 1 day courses, and am always happy to create different courses tailored to the specific needs of a group of people. The courses on offer at the moment are:
Babywearing Supporter – £99
I am a Born to Carry licensed trainer. This course is focused on building/growing a good, solid foundation of babywearing knowledge through both theory and practical sections. I limit my groups to 8 people maximum, to give participants the best quality learning experience.
Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a course for a specific date. I run courses within a 2hr radius of Ipswich, Suffolk, subject to a minimum number of participants.
Upcoming dates: Friday 7th October (Maidstone) FULL, Sunday 30th October (Maidstone), Friday 11th November (Monmouth), Saturday 12th November (Swansea)
Please get in touch if you would like me to deliver a course in your area.
Newborn Baby Carrying – £85
On this course we will explore much more than just putting a newborn into a stretchy wrap. Aimed at birth workers, this is designed to encourage an holistic approach when supporting your clients. I limit the group to 6 people maximum to give a better quality learning experience.
Please do email me if you find the dates available difficult to attend, would like me to bring the course to where you live or if you would like me to offer something different in terms of training days.
