I began my baby carrying journey when my son was born, it freed up my hands to look after my toddler, but allowed me to provide the close contact my new baby craved, as my children grew I continued to use slings and carrier to support myself and my children. 

The benefits of carrying your baby and child are considerable, and as research continues we gain a better understanding of the long term effect it can have on family life.

To make a booking for baby carrying support please complete a booking enquiry or contact me directly on D@DoulaD.co.uk or call on:07854535555

I also attend some local groups and run mini library sessions details of these can be found on my facebook page.
