Carrying Clinic - Advice, Fitting & Hires (Crystal Palace)

Tuesday, 20 Mar 2018 10:30am - 11:30am

  • An online payment is required to book.
  • Bookings end on March 20 at 10:29am.

Pre-booked Carrying Clinic for general baby and toddler carrying advice and fitting, run by our Carrying Consultant, Sarah.

Cost: £15 Per Adult

Duration: 1 hour - please arrive on time

Format: Open Group up to 6 adults

Suitable for: All carrying ages, stages and sling/wrap/carrier types. (If you would like to learn unaided back carries, please book a Private Consultation, in Lewisham or a Back Carrying Workshop in Tooting/Streatham.)

This session offers the chance to get carrying help, advice and product fitting, tips and tricks. It is open to all parents and expectant parents and will address the needs of the individuals who attend. This means that each session will cover different slings, carriers and questions - everyone is different and experiences carrying differently so it can be really helpful to see the wide range of preferences and needs that come up!

Please note that this is an open group class setting, not a private consultation or workshop. We'll be happy to help you with 1 or maybe 2 questions/needs at each session, but we'll need to balance the needs of everyone present. Trying carriers and finding the right options takes longer than you'd expect so don't worry if you don't get everything worked out in one visit!

Many people find it most helpful to attend 2-4 sessions over a period of weeks or months, maybe hiring sling/s or carrier/s to try out and practice with in between, so that we can offer the best support and so that they can really find out what works for them and their baby.

Even if you get the help or information you need with just one session, you may well like to come back in another few months (or even years!) once your baby or family are ready for the next stage :)

The Clinic is a great way to get an idea of what you might need help with, or that you would like to try out.

  • Get help with making the most of your existing sling or carrier
  • Get advice regarding what types, brands or model of sling or carrier may best suit your needs, preferences and proportions.
  • Reassure yourself that you know how to use your carrier correctly and safely for you and your baby.
  • Try on and hire from our library of slings and carriers with the guidance of an expert.
  • Get some of your carrying questions answered!

You could also book onto a targeted, smaller group workshop to go into a specific carrier type, carrying stage or position in more detail as needed.

Those requiring additional time/attention such as answers to detailed questions, special medical needs or those wanting to learn unaided back carries should attend a relevant workshop or a 90 minute Private Consultation.

CANCELLATION POLICY: We have a 48 hour cancellation policy - advice session slots missed or cancelled less than 48 hours in advance incur full fees and we are not able to refund or transfer your booking. We completely understand that babies are unpredictable, however, as our sessions are often fully booked with a waiting list, missed slots that are not cancelled in advance mean that someone else has missed out.
