We are aware that not every family with a disability, or a parent of multiples or a baby who was premature etc will need a consultation, please get in touch to discuss if you are not sure. If you have a challenging circumstance and financial hardship, please get in touch with the Building Bonds Project who may be able to support you.

Our aim is to provide affordable support to babywearing parents all over the region. Most of our drop-in library sessions for simple advice/hires are free or have a minimal charge; these can work well for those on a budget.

We don’t ask for deposits to borrow a carrier as we believe this can put slings out of reach for many, just a hire fee, with terms and conditions that need to be agreed to on hire.

Your local health professional may be able to refer you for help if you are suffering with perinatal mental illness, or have a seriously unwell or disabled child.
