Hi, I'm

Vicky..

I am a mum of four (3 and 1 angel baby) and have carried all of my children in slings (my eldest is 11!).  I am a qualified early years practitioner.

I decided to try using a sling because I had a very traumatic delivery with my first child and as a result of the emergency c-section I struggled to bond with them.  Using the sling really helped!  I subsequently used slings with my next 2 children and they have made my parenting journey so much easier as well as helping me overcome PND.

I have always been passionate about using slings and a believer of using a more gentle style of parenting.  People would see me carrying my wee ones and often stop me to ask for advice about their sling. I went on a peer supporter course with School of Babywearing and then later on a carrying course with Slingababy to expand my babywearing knowledge and gain skills to help me pass information onto others effectively.

 

I am a trained and insured babywearing specialist! I am here to help you understand babywearing, discover sling types and find out how babywearing can help make your day to day life as a parent, easier!  I can also help you learn how to use your sling as an aid when feeding your baby, be it by breast/chest, bottle, sns or cup.

I have more recently trained as a doula with Badass Doulas and completed several other courses as I love learning and feel it is important to keep my knowledge up to date. I am a trained breastfeeding peer supporter with the ABM.  I have trained with The Caesarean Birth Specialist so I can support parents who might require to birth this way. I have also had LGBT+ competency training with The Queer Birth Club that I felt was essential in taking Little Pumpkins forwards.

Then I was lucky to get a place on the Beyond Birth training course so I have been pulling all my skills together and also my experiences with mental illness to study to become a mental wellbeing practitioner. With slings being my main area of expertise,  I am constantly updating my knowledge so that I know I am giving out safe correct advice and keep up to date with new baby carrier releases. I am currently studying Babywearing for Perinatal Professionals with Adjoyn.
