Business Name: Carried with Care
Qualification: Sling & Carrier Consultant, Slingababy UK
Location: Dunedin + some national services
About: Independent Sling and Carrier Consultant offering private consultations and group workshops in Dunedin as well as Skype demonstrations for families around NZ who don’t have access to a local consultant. My Philosophy: I believe babies are meant to be carried, babies have always been carried, all over the world, babies are carried. There are many reasons families choose to carry their children and each is as valid and as individual as each family. I work with families to assess their needs and help find a solution to fit. My approach is loving and non-judgemental and I believe everyone has the right to access help and knowledge. Baby-carrying is not just for a particular style of parenting or family model but for anyone who wishes to carry children. For either a long time, or a short time.
