Our pre-bookable Sling Clinics are small group settings of no more than eight families, with consultant support. They run every other Monday afternoon from 1-3pm, with half hour slots for two families at a time, you can stay as long as you need.

Library drop in sessions are often busy and can feel crowded, so these clinics are designed to provide a calmer, less rushed atmosphere with a limited attendance. We help families with a range of sling needs, from complete beginners to those wanting to try something new. They will suit people who prefer quieter and more personal settings than the drop-ins, all ages welcome from bump to preschool and beyond.

We limit this to eight families. This ensures we have enough time and attention to be able to concentrate on each member of the clinic in some depth and ensure everyone leaves with a smile!

If you have a special situation or a child with extra needs please check with us if this clinic is suitable or if a 1-2-1 would be better

  • We can help you to get started with slings if you have never used one before, making suggestions about what might suit your needs best
  • We can show you some different types of slings and help you try them on
  • We can help you make the most of your current carrier, help you use it more comfortably and troubleshoot any problems

The whole Surgery library will be available for hire as usual and the Sling Spot shop range is available for purchase next door.

Please note we do not teach back carries with a woven here, but in specific workshops.

Children are welcome; if your older toddler is likely to find the session hard work and make learning difficult for others, a one to one session may be more productive.

Library and Hire

Slings can be hired from the sling clinics.

This is a fixed price of £5 per sling for a week’s hire (£15 per month) when paid on time or in advance. The daily rate is £1/day (so keeping up to date is cheaper and easier for us!) We will ask you to fill in a hire form with your details and read the terms and conditions when hiring.
