Mini Consult with Rosie, £20, 30mins

About / description

Half an hour of time with Rosie (the lead consultant at the Sling Surgery) for focused and expert help. The ticket is per family unit. (Full consults are 60minutes and are £35).

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 (more than would be possible in a library drop in)

We can help you make the most of your current carrier, help you use it more comfortably and troubleshoot any problems, or show you a new skill with it.

If you have a special situation or a child with extra needs please check with us if a full 1-2-1 would meet your requirements better. 

The whole Surgery library will be available for hire as usual (£5 per week per sling) and the Sling Spot shop range is available for purchase next door. 


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, in a one-to-one setting

Parking / transport
