Workshops can come to you!

Want to host a workshop or a group sling clinic at your home or another venue?

I’d love to do this with you! Group workshops are a great option for

  • baby groups and children’s centres
  • professional teams in health or social care
  • groups of friends (or an NCT group!) who want to learn together
  • groups of local parents who are keen for me to come to them!

I come to you with all that we need for a great session! You can choose one of our standard workshops, or email me to agree a mixed agenda that suits your group perfectly. I find workshops work best with 3 – 10 participants – if you’ve got over 10 people email before you book as I might need to source more weighted practice dolls!

How workshops work

You can bring your baby

It’s totally normal to bring your child with you – and to do your learning around cuddles, feeds, changes etc… We always allow a little extra time for anyone that needs to catch up at the end on anything they missed.

You can bring support

It’s totally normal to come by yourself, and totally normal to bring partners and grandparents to give you a hand! Whatever works best for you 🙂

You can bring food!

It’s hungry work being pregnant and looking after small humans. Feel free to bring whatever snacks and drinks you like (I’m usually lugging big bags of slings and heavy dolls, so biscuits generally don’t survive!)

You can work around a bump

There’s a few things we don’t suggest if you’re pregnant, but there’s plenty of carrying that is possible with a bump – we’ll help you find demo dolls and sling options so you can learn in comfort.

You get lots of love and support

I’m keen to do whatever we can to make everyone feel comfortable and supported. That starts with things like adapting sessions for disability and neurodiversity and getting your name and pronouns right. And throughout the session your needs and choices are respected – we’ll empower you to do what works for you.
