"What you need to know before you GO!"
This is a FREE class brought to the community by the birth team at Abundant Life Birth Center and Brian Moriarty, DC with Loving Chiropractic. Center for Babywearing Studies Trained Educator Britt Beason will be teaching, demonstrating, and answering any questions in a casual class and discussion around babywearing.
To search "babywearing" online will result in thousands of suggestions of different types of carriers, each type with their own long list of manufacturing companies boasting why their product is the best. Tropical Babywearing operates with a goal to help fill the space between the consumer and the babywearer. There are so very many different ways, and different carriers in which to wear your baby. The stages of a newborn's physical, emotional, and biological development are of great importance. How those stages apply to babywearing is a little more than a short explanation. Britt's Babywearing Basics will smooth the development points out for caretakers, break-down the "types of carriers" mystery, and leave you with confidence that the choices you make regarding your purchases are sound choices for your and your child. The benefits are, undoubtedly immeasurable to both caretaker and child.
As always, bring the whole family; children, partners and other caretakers are all welcome to join us! Attending during the second half of pregnancy is ideal, however we welcome everyone as many times as you care to join us.
