Peer Support Training


Trageschule Babywearing Advocacy Peer Support.

Emily and Olga are delighted that you are interested in this Trageschule Babywearing Advocacy/Peer Support training. Designed for individuals that want to formalise their passion for enabling safe, confident sling use. This training will provide the perfect toolkit for starting or helping to run your local sling library.

All details are available here: 

  • Tools to boost your chances of success when helping others including tips, proven approaches and exercises for making your input and support count.
  • Have you ever seen someone at your sling library/meet completely “not getting it” despite all help received and ending up frustrated and upset? What makes support and learning for a parent/carer in a sling library/meet setting tricky? Here you will learn how to “proof” your library  environment from the common roadblocks.
  • Have you ever been bothered by comments such as, “This will really hurt your back!” or “This will make your baby clingy!”
  • How to avoid common factors that put parents/carers off from so many parenting groups. Ensure your sling library and/or meet is welcoming for all.
