We have now trained as babywearing consultants and can offer one to one consultations. We are also starting to run babywearing workshops. We still have our coursework to complete before we receive our certificates so our rates will be lower until we are fully qualified.
If you feel you need one on one support, more than we can offer at one of the library sessions, we can come to your home and talk you through the different options and find a sling to suit you and your baby. After we are fully qualified we will be charging £45 for a 1.5 hour consultation. Until then we will be charging £30 for this service. Please message us on facebook or e-mail email@example.com to arrange a consultation.
We’ll be running a range of workshops. They will last for 2 hours and cost £25 per couple or £15 for one person. Until we receive our certificates we will be charging £15 per couple or £10 for one person. You’ll be able to hire or buy a sling at the workshop if you’d like. You’ll receive a goody bag with useful info and items for pregnancy (if antenatal) and beyond. Check our facebook page for our upcoming workshops. If you would like to arrange your own workshop with a group of friends (e.g. your antenatal group) please get in touch. There will be a discount for this.
Antenatal and Newborn Babywearing Workshop
If you’re expecting or have a baby up to 3 months old, come along and learn bout different types of slings you can use with your newborn. You’ll be able to try them out with dolls. We will also cover bump wrapping which can help with things like pelvic girdle pain. Additionally, there will be a short talk/demo about cloth nappies at the end of the workshop.
“Thank you so much for providing this wonderful course. I only wish I had attended something like this before having my first baby. It has now given me much more confidence in carrying my newborn baby safely and comfortably in the right kind of carrier for me. I also liked the cloth nappy demonstration, I hadn’t realised how easy and better for the environment it was.”
“I thought the ladies where lovely I left feeling confident on what wrap was the right one for me and my baby and confident on how to put on and use safely.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the Stork and The Bees babywearing workshop I attended in January and thought it was excellent value too. There are so many types of slings it is really overwhelming to know where to begin. New slings generally aren’t cheap and if you buy one that isn’t right for you you can be stuck with it. It was so helpful to try out the different options with the guidance of the experts, there were slings there I didn’t think I’d like that I found really comfortable and ones I thought I’d like that didn’t suit me – it’s great to have the option to rent them too to see how you get on with them ‘in real life’.
I was already sold on the idea of babywearing and cloth nappies before I went to the workshop but if I hadn’t been, the knowledge and passion of Caroline, Cristina and Helena would’ve sealed the deal for me!”
