Babywearing

Consultations 

I, Kim, am available to teach and support you everything you need to know when selecting the right baby carrier or sling for your family and needs. I will help you carry your baby or child safely and show you how to carry them comfortably and with confidence. I have 7 years experience carrying my own children and supporting others to carry theirs. I’d love to help you to carry yours too.

I offer 1:1 babywearing consultations from a dedicated space in my home in Wookey Hole, Somerset. If you would rather I came to your home, this can be arranged on request at an additional cost of £10 for travel within 30 minutes of my home.

Prior to our 1:1 consultation I will send you a pre-consultation questionnaire, which I ask you to complete at least 48 hours prior to our session. This allows me to tailor our session to suit your babywearing needs.

I offer a range of consultation options. Please see our product to pay for your consultation. I will then be in touch via the contact details you have provided to confirm the booking and to send you the above mentioned questionnaire. If you can’t see an option that fits with your needs please get in touch and we can discuss which package best fits your unique situation.
