I’m happy to be offering private babywearing consults, group  classes, continuing education for doulas and health care professionals, and a group prenatal series in Calgary, AB.

I have been a babywearing educator since 2007 and I am passionate about helping caregivers find their parenting stride and build their confidence. Babywearing is not about 101 rules, it is about creating a space for you to find yourself, get to know your baby(ies), and ultimately provide a catalyst for empowered parenting.

Private Babywearing Consult

This includes:

  • one on one instruction at your home (or mine)
  • breakdown of various carriers (depending on what you’re looking at)
  • carrier sizing
  • hands on instruction
  • tips and tricks for comfort and ease
  • goal setting for your babywearing journey

Group Babywearing Class

Babywearing classes can be booked for your group of up to 20. Classes include:

  • discussion of carriers of choice (this depends on what kind of class it is)
  • demo of desired carries
  • instruction and hands on learning of carries
  • Q&A

The types of classes people usually book include “newborn babywearing”, “getting baby on your back”, “intro to woven wraps”, although I also run specialty classes including “tandem babywearing” and “traditional babywearing”. Please email me at theoffbeatdoula@gmail.com to inquire about booking a class for your group.

Prenatal Babywearing Series

This prenatal babywearing series is a great addition to any prenatal classes that you may be taking. There are three classes spread over the course of three weeks, and then a postnatal visit once your baby(ies) arrives. In this class, we will go over:

  • physiological and psychological aspects of carrying
  • hip and spine development
  • hands on instruction for specific newborn carries using three different carriers
  • breastfeeding carries
  • goal setting
  • skin to skin/kangaroo mother care
  • and more!….

This is the ultimate class you can take prenatally to prepare for your postpartum period. Come and join other like minded parents during your transition to parenthood, and ensure that you are off to your best start.

If you’d like to see some of the businesses that sponsor my babywearing classes, please head on over to my Sponsor page. Without them, I would not have as many wonderful carriers to showcase.
