Meet the Team

We are a group of babywearing enthusiasts who love using slings/carriers. Each of us has arrived in the babywearing world via different means and for a variety of reasons. All of us who demonstrate slings to give you a perfect fitting have invested in professional training with either one of more of the main UK and European schools: Slingababy, Trageschule, Born to Carry and Je Porte Mon Bebe. These training schools provide in-depth information regarding technique, safety, types of slings common and unusual, positioning, case studies, real life studies, hours and hours of practise and continuous professional development days. We can show you how to use slings/carriers safely and with confidence. Oxford Sling Library prides itself on being a friendly place where parents can seek practical advice and help in using/buying (new or second hand) slings and carriers.

We also work closely with professionals in our local community. Josie gives regular talks at Parentcraft and is a guest speaker at East Oxford Children’s Centre running a sling clinic. Emily runs her own Trageschule based course teaching midwives and healthcare professionals how to use slings in the hospital setting and beyond. See her Training pages for latest courses. Naomi will soon to open a sling clinic in Bicester.

Would you like to volunteer with us?
We are looking for admin volunteers to help welcome families to Oxford Sling Library. We provide admin training on our software and you will become familiar with all the types of slings over time. If any of you would like to train as Peer Supporters or Sling Consultants, get in touch and we can notify you of the upcoming courses around the country.
**Admin**: we provide training into the wonderful world of MyTurn, our sling tracking platform. Oxford Sling Library was the first sling library in the UK to use it, we set up a MyTurn support page and now there are 50x sling libraries on board using it too.
**Peer Support courses**: check out Born to Carry
**Sling Consultant training**: Slingababy, Trageschule, Je Porte Mon Bebe.

Oxford Sling Library and Oxford Sling Meet are fully insured by BGI and British Association of Babywearing Instructors BABI.
