Babywearing Peer Support

The Babywearing Peer Support course offers formal recognition of the skills of people who give information about slings and baby carriers through Sling Meets, sling libraries, antenatal classes or postnatal groups. The course focuses on the Practical Skills of Babywearing, including sling safety and checking slings for wear and tear. You’ll attend a one-day workshop and complete your qualification through home study and coursework. By the end of your training, you should be able to:

  • Show an awareness of different ways of using a range of slings and baby carriers to meet individual needs
  • Assess the benefits and potential disadvantages of different types of slings and baby carriers for specific parents’ needs
  • Understand how slings should be worn safely and how the incorrect use of slings can affect the health and wellbeing of parent and baby/child

Fees

The course costs £90, although we do offer an Early Bird discount which reduces the cost to £80 accessed via our Calendar page). Fees may be paid in instalments and we aim to offer concessionary places in future.
