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 or take part in an online course with a 2.5 hour live class 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
The course costs £90. Fees may be paid in instalments and we may be able to offer concessionary places.
