What people say.

“I’m so glad I attended the sling and meet session yesterday, it was my first one, all the ladies were so helpful, friendly and gave good babywearing advice. I have my own slings which I struggle to tie/wear and Sam and Michelle were happy to show me how. There was also a fab collection of slings and wraps available for hire. I will attend again as there are lots of new mums to meet and chat to.”
