Despite Covid-19, we are still providing support
In accordance with public health guidance, we are now reading to begin slowly returning to face to face support. You can find our full Covid-19 precautions here: https://happyslinglady.co.uk/covid19-2/
Babies will still be born, want to be carried and families still need evidence based information and support. Online, live help will be available via Zoom workshops, on the Facebook page, on Instagram and in our closed Facebook group:
You can still arrange a postal hire, or a contact free doorstep pick up in B65 and receive help via video call (if you don’t get on with it you can switch to something else, free of charge during the hire period). Currently we are offering either hire at a reduced rate of £10 for one carrier for one month, or £15 for two carriers for one month. You can see everything we have available here: https://happyslinglady.myturn.com
However you hire, please ensure you’ll be able to send your carrier back in the same way you received it either by dropping off to B65 or posting.
Pregnant families and those with newborns under 6 weeks, you can take advantage of our stretchy wrap scheme, FREE for 4 weeks and extendable for a further 8 for just £15. I’ll be doing online stretchy wrap workshops so you can practise and troubleshoot.
Video 1:1 sessions, and phone calls are still available so you can still get individualized support, and we are starting to offer socially distanced 1:1 sessions in my garden (weather dependent!)
You can also still purchase a sling/carrier through the library (which really will help us keep going through the tricky times ahead) and get video/messenger/phone support with fitting and set up. We have a range of Tulas, Ergos, Zenslings, Izmis, Boba wraps and Calin Bleu available.
As always, we will do our best to meet your access needs including financially. Get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.
Lots of love, stay well and stay connected
