Introductory workshops are a great place to come along and learn about baby physiology and some of the history and benefits of using a carrier with our children. We will then talk about safety and positioning in a carrier before I jump into a quick demo of five different styles. We can then explore some options you might like to try from the library of over 50 carriers or I can help with fit or comfort issues with a carrier you already own.
