I’m Brianna Dymond and I am the Happy Sling Lady. I am a fully qualified and insured sling consultant and I trained with the Slingababy Training School (Nov 2017) and offer lots of services in the Birmingham area.

Babywearing has supported a lovely, close relationship between me, my partner, my extended family and my children and I am so excited to be able to share the gift of carrying with other families local to me.

A few things we’re great at

We offer a whole range of different carrier services to try and meet the needs of every family. 

SLING LIBRARIES

Sling library sessions are a chance to meet other local parents and browse slings. You can then hire a carrier for the month to try out. TIme is limited and sessions may be busy.

1:1 SESSIONS

Excellent if you would like a longer and more personalised session than at a library/workshop. I come to you so need to even leave the house! Perfect for newborn carrying, in depth skills like wrapping or for those with additional needs or special circumstances

WORKSHOPS/COLLABORATION

Want to learn a particular skill? Or maybe just have a general overview of carrying options? Workshops can go over in more detail in a small group setting, ideal for perfecting something like back carrying or preparing for a new baby. If you’re a healthcare professional or run baby/group class I would love to work with you.

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

Booked a 1 to 1 session as I am a sling novice. Brianna was so knowledgeable, she made me feel relaxed, answered all my questions/ concerns. I ended up with a beautiful stretchy wrap for my newborn and I have the confidence to use it. Highly recommend

Sue

Brianna is very welcoming and so helpful. I’ve so far loaned a wrap and a zensling and have ended up purchasing a zensling from Brianna with her discount as we loved it and my little one was so happy in it. Brianna is on hand to answer questions via her page or messenger too so when I needed some help with adjustments she sent videos and advice. Can’t fault the service and support and it’s so cheap to loan the wraps and carriers to have a go. As you can’t really tell until you try. This is an invaluable service and I’ve been spreading the word around my mum friends as the sling librarys are so friendly and helpful….there are also refreshments, so you can take your time and have a go with the slings and not feel rushed.

Lucy

I’ve been to Brianna’s sling libraries several times and she’s so helpful! It’s a fantastic opportunity to try out different slings at the library and then hire them to see how you get on at home! This was so Useful for me as it meant I could try out quite a few different slings to make sure it was right before making my purchase!  The atmosphere is the sling library is really relaxed and friendly and Brianna is lovely!
Highly recommend x

Ellie

Volunteer Sling Librarian

When I had my first I tried to wrap a stretchy from a YouTube video and ended up in a big knot. I volunteer so that no other new extremely tired new mom ends up in the same situation! I want to support and empower mothers to feel like they can do anything they set their mind to. Volunteering has done that for me

Rebecca

Volunteer Sling Librarian

Baby wearing has been an essential part in raising my 3 children giving us the freedom to go anywhere, keep them close and be hands free! It’s been a learning journey though and I volunteer to not only ‘share the love’ but also support and enable others to realise they can achieve what they want to. Its great to be able to connect with others in the library and be a little part in their own parenting journey.
