Are you interested in wearing your baby but don’t know where to begin? It can be so overwhelming and frustrating to learn with a real baby, so we have teamed up with Adjoyn to help parents learn before birth!

During this class, Amy Rainbow, a Certified Babywearing Consultant will help you create your own unique babywearing plan, customized to your lifestyle, goals, and budget.

You will learn about the latest carrier types, their uses and which one could be the best fit for you. Each couple will get a personalized fitting (with a real weighted doll) and send you off with confidence for the first time you carry your precious baby!

Workshop intended for one caregiver or two co-caregivers prior to welcoming baby, but is beneficial at any time. This workshop will not have specific carriers sold, but all participants do get access to deals with local partners.

Class is limited to 6 couples, online registeration is required to hold your space. $29 per couple.
