"I booked a 60 minute consultation with Maria in her lovely studio. I wanted to explore woven wraps as a new option for baby wearing for myself as I had read a lot about them and was keen to try. To start with she gave me lots of information about woven wraps in general and the basics of how to use them which was interesting and really useful and we then went through 2 different carries which I tried with her there - initially with the doll and then with my baby - who was so comfortable in it that she fell asleep!
I then upgraded my booking to join the sling library after her suggestion which was a great idea so that I could hire a wrap to try before I consider buying one myself or try something new from the library afterwards.
Maria was friendly and welcoming and made me feel completely at ease throughout the session. Her instructions were clear and her follow up emails were really great to consolidate everything and give me some further resources to look at.
Lastly her studio is beautiful and a lovely setting for her consultations."
“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!”
