SKIN TO SKIN
I Nourish families by respecting they are the expert of their child.
I Align families by connecting them comfortably & confidently with their child in a baby carrier.
Although commercial baby carriers and skin-to-skin devices include instructions, I have found it does not replace to one-on-one, hands on assistance. I provide personalized assistance for families to meet their Babywearing or skin-to-skin needs.
My services include:
* Basic skin-to-skin education and device overview and selection
* Trouble shooting with existing carriers
* An overview of the carriers of your choice:
Soft Structured Carrier
* Babywearing safety
* Step-by-step hands on instruction for the carrier of your choice
* Functional Babywearing and TummyTime! Method basics
All services can be personalized and tailored to suit your needs. Please contact me to determine what is best to meet your babywearing and skin to skin goals.
2 Hour* Personalized Consultation
Hands on instruction for families to meet their babywearing or skin to skin needs. Personalized for your family/child please contact me to determine length of consultation needed. I travel to your home and bring a collection of teaching carriers and demo dolls. Travel fee may apply based on location.
*Length varies based on needs.
Consultations range from providing a fit check, demonstrating a specific carry, and giving feedback as the caregiver mirrors me. Virtual consultations are perfect for those of you who are not close to Baltimore, who do not want to come out to a class, or not ready for visitors in your home.
