(In the Norwich and North Norfolk area)
I’m pleased to say I am now offering babywearing consultations having completed a babywearing consultants course with The school of babywearing.
If you want to learn about carrying your child, whether your still pregnant and preparing or have a toddler that wants to be carried when tired, then a consultation may be a great place to start. I offer one to one learning or you can bring your partner or possibly friend if pre arranged. I can show you right from the beginning if your just starting out or help build upon your existing skills if you want to add different styles of carries/carriers to your repertoire.
An introduction to carrying. Newborn to 3 months
This option is aimed at new parents and parents to be. It’s good to be prepared so this makes a great antenatal babywearing consultation looking at the different ways you can carry your newborn and the different styles of slings that are available. I will start by showing you the different slings that work with newborns, explaining the pros and cons of each style then go into detailed demonstrations with 1 or 2 styles depending on your choices. This will last around 90 minutes and cost £30 for one person (or couple) or £40 if you want to share the consultation with a friend. If you wish to update your skills after baby is born I offer a free follow up, 1 hour session.
An introduction to carrying. 3 months plus
This option is similar to an introduction to carrying a new born but the style of sling you might find more comfortable may change between 3 and 6 months. We will start by looking at the different sling styles available and decide which one or two you would like to look at in-depth then teach you the skills to comfortably and safely carry your child. This will last around 90 minutes and costs £30 for one person or couple. Due to the amount of options on offer this isn’t available to book with a friend.
Exploring soft structured carriers (SSC) and Asian style carriers
With this option we will be looking at buckled carriers (ssc) and Asian style carriers such as Mei tai’s, Podaegi’s and wrap conversions. We will look at your choice of front, hip or back carries mainly covering one area but we can look at a second if time allows. This will last around 1 hour and costs £25 for one person. Partners can attend for free or bring a friend with prior arrangement for £35.
Exploring woven wraps
Woven wraps come in so many sizes and blends with a huge variety of ways to use them. This option will allow us to explore some of the carries we can do with woven wraps. All sizes of wrap are available and we can cover either front, hip or back carries. We can cover three different carries with a one to one session for £30 or two carries if you want to bring a friend for £40. If you come with a friend you must both learn the same carries. This session will last approximately 2 hours.
Using ring slings
Using a ring sling can take some practice but it’s a fantastic go to and quick to use once you know what you are doing. Ring slings can be used on the front from birth, hip from around 4 months and back carries from around 6 months depending on the child. A one to one session will cost £20 and last approximately 45 minutes. Partners are welcome in the one to one or to bring a friend is £30
If you have twins or a small age gap between children you may find you want to carry both at the same time. This is a very individual style with so many options available so is only available as a one to one session or with a partner. This option costs £35 and will last up to 2 hours or you can book 2 sessions (newborn with follow up 2 hour consultation) for £50
I am located just outside of North Walsham but can co ordinate Norwich based consultations whilst I’m in Norwich . You can come to me or I can come to you for petrol costs at £0.20 per mile (there and back)
