As a new parent, I was faced with what I now know is a common conundrum – a thousand tasks to accomplish, and a baby who only and always wanted to be held. Not one to sacrifice a snuggle, I found the perfect solution and solace in babywearing. As I mastered the wide array of carriers and methods available, my parenting confidence soared. In the years that have followed, I’ve found my calling in empowering other parents by handing them the tool that has made such a difference in my journey.
As a mother of 3 in a four-year window, I can’t imagine what my life would have been like without the ability to wear my children. With over 10 years of babywearing experience, training from the Center for Babywearing Studies, and years of service as the administrator of one of the country’s largest online babywearing communities, I am firmly established as one of the leading voices in my field. Whether I’m teaching classes for small groups, holding private consultations, working with the employees of small businesses, speaking at babywearing conferences, or representing major retailers at national tradeshows, my goal remains the same – to give parents the liberating, powerful magic of babywearing with comfort, confidence, and ease.
Parenting is endless, full-handed, full-hearted work, and each of us deserves every possible key to success and thriving. For me, babywearing was the window into a world of bonding, exploration, adventure, and every last moment of precious time. The years of early parenthood are fleeting, and so often lost in the exhaustion and mayhem – my hope is to help you capture and keep them, one family, one lesson, one carrier at a time.
