One of our aims at Oscha is to support the promotion of babywearing, and to acknowledge the incredible and dedicated work undertaken worldwide by professionals, volunteers, parents and others passionate about highlighting the benefits of carrying your child in a sling.
To help in this endeavour, we offer schemes and incentives for Sling Libraries, Babywearing Consultants, Doulas and Midwives, which include the opportunity to purchase discounted wraps, ring slings and carriers. We also offer free resources – from safety literature, to our art inspired babywearing benefits campaign posters, and offer promotions through our Communities Newsletter.
What are Sling Libraries and Babywearing Consultants and How Do I Find Them?
Sling Libraries offer the chance to meet other parents and carers, talk with experienced babywearers and try out different carrier styles to find the right sling for you and your child.
These groups are informal and relaxed, and very welcoming of newcomers!
Professional Babywearing Consultants are trained to provide one to one advice and support centred around your babywearing needs. Appointments can be made for a consultation where you
can discuss any specific concerns or learn how to carry your child with confidence.
