Next Online Workshop Friday 5th of March 2021, 10am on Zoom:

Online Stretchy Wrap Workshop

Got a stretchy wrap and getting all tangled with it? Don’t know where to start? Can’t get it right? Just curious? Join our stretchy wrap workshop on Zoom on Friday 5th of March 2021 at 10am where we will cover:

  • How stretchy wraps work and benefits
  • Safety
  • Teach you how to do 2 different carries with it
  • Different positions for breast/bottle feeding using them as support.

Spaces are limited to make sure everyone is being supported the best we can.

Price is £7.50 with your own wrap, £10 with a 1 month’s wrap hire (wrap to be picked up before the workshop from my place in Bethnal Green). Happy to post but can’t make any guarantees it will get to you in time, if it arrives late, we will do a 1-0-1 online consultation instead (you can still join the workshop to watch!).

Booking either by sending a DM, text on 07916349685 or email mel.wrapahug@gmail.com. All details will be sent to you.

Super looking forward to it!!!!

Newborn Workshops

In this workshop, you will learn all about the benefits of babywearing, safety, how to dress your baby in the sling, pros and cons of different types of slings, feeding in slings and get to try on lots of different types of slings with support. It’s a lovely way to connect with your baby, learn new skills and meet other parents!

Sling-Specific Workshops

These workshops are designed for a specific type of sling and for you to learn different techniques to front, hip or back carry with it (e.g., back carrying with a woven wrap or buckle carrier, introduction to stretchy wraps, back carrying with a buckle carrier).

Introduction to Babywearing for Professionals Workshops

This workshop is aimed at perinatal and early years professionals who work closely with parents in a support role (e.g., doulas, health visitors, midwives etc…) and want to gain more awareness of how slings can support new parents. We go over safety and what to look out for, different types of slings and benefits. This workshop is not designed for you to learn how to teach parents how to tie slings, but for you to gain awareness.
