I offer one to one or group consultations in my home, in your own home or at a suitable location in or around Surrey and the surrounds areas of West Sussex, South London, including Epsom, Cheam, Chessington, Horsham, Reigate, Leatherhead, Oxshott and Dorking here I am based.
Consultations are ideal for those who wish to learn about carrying, whether you are pregnant and want to learn ahead, have a newborn and want to carry them, or have an older baby or toddler. These can be for both parents to attend with your child.
I can help you with your own sling/carrier or I have a large selection you are able to try using demo dolls to practice so you can build your confidence safely.
Paying for time with a trained consultant can help you gain knowledge as well as improving your techniques so you can carry comfortably. confidently and safely.
