Aly Sanders, Peer Supporter
I began volunteering as a peer supporter at the library just before COVID hit!
I gave birth to my daughter Zen in the summer of 2019 and my love for babywearing evolved. We had a hard time with evening crying for the first three months and nothing soothed her. We hired a sling from the library and she loved the movement and closeness. The sling allowed me to know I was meeting my daughter's desire to be close but have my hands free to feed and take care of myself.
Zen was exclusively worn in the sling for her first 5 months of life which I am sure has contributed to our incredible bond and her outgoing personality!
Use of the sling was the most valuable tool I had as a new mum. And the connection we have formed as a result of it is lifelong.
I look forward to supporting other mums, dads, grandparents in this incredible journey...after all it takes a village!
