The Sling Works
Let me introduce myself…
I’m Judith, Babywearing Consultant and owner of The Slingworks.
I first used slings over 11 years ago with my daughter, and really caught the babywearing bug with my son 9 years ago.
Since becoming involved in the sling world I have trained with Trageschule UK at both Foundation and Advanced level, and completed the Slingababy Consultancy course in 2017.
Over the past 11 years I have built up a great deal of knowledge and experience of different slings and how to use them, and have a passion for using that knowledge to enable parents and carers to enjoy the amazing benefits that come from carrying their child in a sling.
Carrying should be safe, comfortable and fun – my aim is to help as many families as possible experience this.
I offer one-to-one consultations in your home, small group teaching and workshops. The Slingworks has a collection of over 50 different carriers and is growing all the time.
I can’t wait to meet you and join you on your carrying journey.
You can contact Judith on:
Alice is trained as a pregnancy massage therapist and can offer an hours completely relaxing massage. This is safe at anytime of pregnancy, and is tailored to your needs. Mums have reported finding massage beneficial particularly if experiencing symphysis pubic dysfunction or back ache. I teach you exercises to further your pregnancy support, and support your baby aligning to the best position for birth.
A one hour massage is £38 and can be booked as a gift.
I highly recomend using reusable nappies, we have LOVED our Baba and Boo nappies, as they have fitted Tabs perfectly. But different nappies suit different babies.
I would recommend reading about nappies on https://www.thenappylady.co.uk/
Check if your local council is running a scheme where you get a voucher or money off reusable nappies, they often do as they are so keen to support this hugely environmentally friendly practice!
Join the facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/478073612268345/
On this group you can ask questions, and better still buy or resell nappies. This helps a lot in the beginning when you are working out what brand works best for your baby, as some fit better than others. Going second hand is a big win as often you can sell your ‘stash’ for as much as your bought it, so you are not losing any money!
There is a real nappy week where you can get big discounts, worth waiting to buy new ones then!
Ask a friend who also loves their nappies! They may even have a few to lend you to try out.
Find a Nappy Library where you can hire starter kits, local to Lancashire there is a group in Ormskirk https://www.facebook.com/WestLancsClothBumMum
