I can't recommend the Slingababy course highly enough for those wishing to deepen their understanding of many aspects of carrying consultancy. I had completed two other consultancy courses prior to Slingababy and I felt that Lorette helped me widen my view - a liberating experience! I feel much more empowered to work with families now and empower them in turn. Slingababy helped me understand the consultant/client relationship in a more rounded way and was thought-provoking at every turn, forcing me to be fearless in appraising myself and my skills, essential for making necessary changes. I love being part of the Slingababy community and look forward to the day when getting to the CPD workshops is easier for me - I'm greedy for more!
The Slingababy course is the third carrying consultant course that I have done. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn more about supporting people in their carrying journey. The freedom to explore different solutions to problems and the different ways of working have really added to my toolkit and challenged the way I think. I find the continuing online support invaluable, and am looking forward to attending the regular CPD courses where possible.
Studying with Slingababy was an amazing experience and then there's all the online support afterwards from the Slingababy consultants and twice annual meet ups. The course itself is thorough, fascinating, fun and full of revelations. The Slingababy method of teaching is wonderful in that Lorette & Jody have a great deal of knowledge/experience, their methods of delivering information are clear, visual and are in followable/teachable steps. I appreciated the way that we are taught different methods for using each type of sling so that we have options to tailor demo's to a persons ability or situation. What really struck me about Lorette is that she has a unique way of speaking: with incredible directness and kindness combined. It is a wonderful skill and very few people that I know have this quality to this level.
The Slingababy course is not a conventional sling consultancy course, it's so much more! It's truly inspirational. Lorette's and Jody's passion and ethics shine through in everything they do and it's contagious! Hence the thriving warm community of Slingababy consultants, it's more than that... It's a big family ready to help in your journey. I don't know how they do it but no matter how much or how little previous experience you have, no matter whether it's a hobby or a profession for you... The Slingababy course is an inflexion point in anyone's life... You will leave after the intense 4 days truly inspired, empowered and believing in yourself and with a great toolset to make this world a tiny bit better.
For the last three years, the Slingababy course had a maximum of six trainees per course. As we have grown both in experience and reputation, we now have waiting lists for most of our courses. After careful considerations and a recent trial run of a bigger group, we have decided to open bookings to up to eight new people! That's right, a potential extra two consultants to carry the gift of love! If you would like to join us on any of the courses this year, you'd better be quick to reach for these extra spaces as we work on a first arrived first served basis! Have a look here to see what courses we have Looking forward to having you as part of the Slingababy family <3
The Slingababy course will have reached over 200 consultants this weekend! We pride ourselves on the quality of the course but also on the quality of the after-care which is second to none in the UK. As we now have so many consultants, we have had to get some extra help to keep the quality outstanding. Whilst I know the team is passionate and dedicated, they also need to pay their bills which means that the course fees will need to increase. As we want you to get prepared, we are giving you plenty of notice as the price increase will be implemented for courses taking places in 2017. Do remember that we always welcome payment plans to help you reach your goal!
On the first day of Christmas, she dreamt of a new site. A year on, my talented webmistress and I are working lots to make it a lush one! There are still a couple of categories that need filling up but we are working hard behind the scenes to make your experience on the Slingababy website a pleasant one. If you have any queries or suggestions, feel free to drop us an email and we will see what we can do! Lorette
