Antenatal Sling Training

03/11/2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Lucy – slings and babywearing

I am a trained sling and babywearing consultant, and volunteer with Oxford Sling Library, which offers accessible drop in demonstrations and quick help at our regular library meets.

I can also offer individual support in your own home. As a relatively new sling consultant I usually charge just £25 for an hour of support (this is half the market rate).

I also run group training sessions in association with Oxford Sling Library:

Antenatal Sling Workshop – Sunday 3rd November 2:00 – 3:30pm, West Oxford Community Centre

Learn about slings, wraps and baby carriers before your baby arrives!
In this 90 minute small group workshop you will:

  • Learn about the different types of sling you could use to carry your baby
  • Learn the fundamentals of safe carrying and comfortable positioning for your baby
  • Practice carrying using a weighted demonstration doll and a stretchy wrap
  • Hire a stretchy wrap for free from Oxford Sling Library*
  • Get confident with where to go for further help once your baby arrives

*Two week hire, worth £5 – can be taken up after your baby arrives!

Places are limited so book now! Each booking entitles you to two tickets so that you can bring your partner or supporter.
