What’s changing as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic?

Baby Carrying Consultancy

We have some good news during this unprecedented time of social distancing and isolation caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.

In line with the latest government advice, physical slinglibrary workshops will not be running for the foreseeable future. We want to keep helping where we can, and with that in mind we are offering our very popular bump to baby workshops via a group video session using Zoom. The first one will be on Thursday 26th March 2020 starting at 10:00 am, continuing each week at the same time.


More classes will be added in the coming weeks. We expect the video sessions to last an hour and a half, but it may be prudent to allow a little longer due to the nature of video groups. dont worry about being dressed or babies and toddlers being loud. we do know exactly how it is with very young children. you only need to have a device with a camera and space to download zoom, its free to download.

The costs for these sessions are the same as our usual bump to baby classes with a Covid-19 twist.

Bump to baby class costs:
£5 if you are OK financially during this crisis
£3 if you are low waged or a key worker

Free if you are financially struggling at this time

As always if you are really struggling during the crisis we would rather you came anyway, but please don’t abuse this – if we end up covering costs then it will have to be compulsory payment. Like most small face to face enterprises we are also affected financially. Costs may have to be tweaked as we go along.

We are also offering free 15 minute Library appointments daily after 3:00pm. Email slinglady@slinglibrary.com to book.

Longer consultant sessions are also available after 3:00pm daily. Email slinglady@slinglibrary.com to book.

Our online shop is now closed so we don’t put people collecting their pensions at risk in the post office. However we can offer local contact free delivery or collection. (We are based in Huddersfield.)

Elizabeth is doing a weekly slings in focus live session over on our Facebook page looking at a different type of sling each week.

Yolanda is doing ad hoc lives on different Brands of carrier as and when the children permit.

When booking a zoom session please use an email address that you can access from a device with a camera, lap tops and PCs have better images than phones and tablets but they are fine too.
