Carrying Advocacy for Health Care Professionals

About / description

The Carrying Advocacy and Peer Supporter Course for Health Care Professionals (especially those with a special interest in safe sleep and safe feeding in a sling).

This course aims to enable people who work with parents in a professional capacity to give robust, safe advice about babywearing and infuse the people they meet with excitement and confidence about carrying and using a sling.

It is not a consultancy course (therefore does not cover advanced techniques such as back carrying or complex woven wrap techniques), but is designed to equip trainees with the tools they need to be able to support the parents they meet.

It covers topics such as:

the benefits of babywearing

how to talk to people about the importance of carrying

the physiological principles of baby positioning to protect airway, spine and hips

demonstrating and discussing the safe use of slings in many circumstances (with a focus on sleeping and feeding)

confidence with the most common types of sling

practical demonstrating skills

troubleshooting common difficulties

assessing boundaries and responsibilities

babywearing in a historical/sociopolitical context



It would suit those working with new parents in a professional context, such as infant feeding teams, neonatal nurse, doulas, midwives, BabyCalm practitioners, antenatal/postnatal teachers or those with a particular interest in newborn babywearing.

The ticket price includes a copy of Rosie's book, Why Babywearing Matters, published by Pinter and Martin.



You will be asked to complete a booking form, and will also be required to complete a post-course assessment to receive your certificate.
