Beautiful Bonds offers support with the postnatal period, preparing you through pregnancy and supporting you in the fourth trimester with babywearing, feeding, love and nurture.
Colchester Sling Library Supporting Pregnancy and Beyond
We offer various private consultations with a trained Carrying Consultant.
Learn a new skill, take more time deciding on a sling. Get help deciding which carrier is right for you before hiring or buying.
We run a variety of courses for parents to help prepare for and support pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period, including hypnobirthing.
Sling hire is a great idea if you'd like to try before commiting to buying.
It also gives you a chance to try a wide range of carriers without having to buy them all yourself!
Library sessions are a chance to have a quick look at slings/carriers before you hire or buy.
We can also help with your own sling if you are finding it uncomfortable or confusing.
Our workshops cover common carrying skills such as back carrying and learning how to wrap.
We retail a few select slings and carriers as well as some babywearing accessories from local businesses.
Benefits of Babywearing
“Game changer! Visiting the sling library has given me my hands back! After a few hours of borrowing a ring sling I have a tidier house and a napping bubba. Very happy customer!”
“Fantastic visit to Colchester Slings with a private consultation with Maria...We talked through the options and tried on a few slings until we found the perfect one...Maria was super knowledgeable and helpful. The setting was perfect for social distancing and covid procedures were in place. Even a mini chair for my mini me! I would say I would love to visit again however she’s found the perfect sling for us already!”
“Super helpful and knowledgeable with the slings. We had a fabulous, socially distanced, appointment at Kingsland Church and I have now hired a super comfy sling for my new little girl. Thank you 😍.”
