Prebookable Sling Clinic

About / description

Our pre-bookable Sling Clinics are small group settings of no more than six families, with consultant support. They run every other Monday afternoon from 1-2.30pm, with half hour slots for two families at a time.

We limit this to six families. This ensures we have enough time and attention to be able to concentrate on each member of the clinic in some depth and ensure everyone leaves with a smile!
If you have a special situation or a child with extra needs please check with us if this clinic is suitable or if a 1-2-1 would be better. 
We can help you to get started with slings if you have never used one before, making suggestions about what might suit your needs best
We can show you some different types of slings and help you try them on
We can help you make the most of your current carrier, help you use it more comfortably and troubleshoot any problems
The whole Surgery library will be available for hire as usual and the Sling Spot shop range is available for purchase next door.
Please note we do not teach back carries with a woven here, but in specific workshops.


To help you and your family get the help you need with baby slings and carriers in a more private, quieter space than the busy library drop ins.

Parking / transport

There is on street parking £1/hr, £5 per day There is half an hour free parking at the Q park. We are very close to the train station, the bus interchange and the Granville Road tram stop.

Additional information

Slings can be hired from the sling clinics. This is a fixed price of £5 per sling for a week’s hire (£15 per month) when paid on time or in advance. The daily rate is £1/day (so keeping up to date is cheaper and easier for us!) We will ask you to fill in a hire form with your details and read the terms and conditions when hiring. You will get an email from us after your hire (please check junk folders!), and our videos page has lots of helpful links.
