I have attended the Peer Supporter, Consultancy and Feeding in Slings courses. It's not exaggerating to say these are life changing. Slingababy courses are about so much more than slings, it's a whole new way of thinking and understanding people and the world. I'd recommend them as an essential life skill as well as a huge confidence boost for carrying professionals looking to upskill.
Absolutely wonderful company. I did a course with them last week and it was just brilliant. In the lead up to it I also had an issue with a doll another company was supposed to send me and despite it not being their responsibility at all Slingababy went out of their way to help me find a workable solution and find a last minute local replacement. They REALLY care. Their approach is sensitive, empowering, person-centred, humble and generally brilliant. I can’t wait to do their full consultancy course one day.
I honestly can’t put into words how brilliant this course was. I absolutely love Lorette’s way of teaching with slings and how it’s about encouraging personal reflection and mindful approach . I love how truly person centred her practice, that humans are diverse and everyone is different and that’s crucial and has to be central and what works for one won’t for another and that love comes through too for all of us in our differences. and her style is and that is also a central part of what she passes on, so that even if someone wasn’t on that path already (and was more didactic and this is right / that’s wrong), it encourages attendees to be so in skit practice and that this may also have an impact in places beyond even the sling world. Which is really powerful. And even in their own lives. I love that activism and responding to injustice was so central to this. I feel like slingababy is just so connected with my heart and what matters to me and I know I MUST stay connected with you guys to keep me inspired and buzzing and help me do the work I care about. The passion is so powerfuk and the heart is so strong.
Wonderful space holding. Respective, responsive trauma informed approach (or intuitively / instinctively good for anyone with trauma - I need such space and seek them), neurodivergent friendly, safe, culturally humble, generally brilliant I just can’t say enough good about this. I loved slingababy before but I am absolutely in adoration with slingababy after today.
This course was amazing. There is a lot of learn packed in, along with getting to chat with the other people on the course too. I really feel as if I got so much more out of it that it cost.
The consultancy course was a great introduction to not just different carriers and types of carry, but also the Slingababy ethos of being person-centered and meeting people and their needs where they are. It really made me evaluate why I would like to be a consultant and was a great starting point for my babywearing and consultancy journey. Lorette's teaching style is very effective and I left feeling like I had a good overview of the field and a better understanding of where I want to focus in on. Highly recommend even if you're really new to babywearing!
The Course was brilliant, such a wide range of carriers and styles included. Lorette was great, very thorough, explained everything in great detail whilst giving time for any questions. I attended the course to expand my knowledge in other styles of carriers and other ways of carrying and I absolutely felt I did that. I would highly recommend this course.
Intense and inspiring! The course covers so much, and is really well structured, with a great mix of practical skills and theoretical learning and development.
Being able to take part via zoom made the course so much more accessible (no need to factor in travel time and costs, or accommodation) and easier to fit around family life. It enabled attendees from across the world, which really enriched the learning experience. It also helped knowing that the video tutorials would be available to go back to, so that you didn’t need to worry about trying to remember or make notes on every detail.
The slingababy baby wearing consultant course is a intense and wonderful learning experience. Based on a growth mindset Lorette is providing a very good training to develop not only as a constultant but also as a person. Contentwise the course covers a really wide range of knowledge. I really would recommend this course to anyone who wants to start or to enhance his or her baby wearing consultant journey.
Fantastic informative, thought provoking course!
I thought Lorette was a fantastic facilitator, I was very nervous going in as someone that had little baby carrying experience but Lorette made me feel welcomed. She ensured information covered my knowledge base as well as more knowledgeable attendees.
Also brilliant at balancing the different views of the group to make it become a thought provoking conversation
I absolutely loved my peer supporter training! Even though it was held online, I felt like we all got to know eachother well. Lorette is an amazing tutor and is very lighthearted, which put all of us at ease to ask plenty of questions. The amount of wraps, carriers and styles she taught us went far beyond what I was hoping for and can't wait to use my skills at my baby group.
I highly recommend this course to anyone who would like to start their journey to supporting families in babywearing.
I loved it! It was great getting to ask all those silly questions and get an answer. I loved working with everyone and the knowledge I've gained
This is the second Slingababy course I have attended and the experience is like nothing else. You learn so much and come away feeling empowered and passionate to make a change
Lorette is the most inspiring trainer I have had the chance to meet in a while!
The tools I got from the course are an awesome resource to support families.
It was a pleasure to learn in such a safe, stimulating and open minded environment.
I highly recommend Slingababy’s courses!
I really love Lorettes approach to training. It's very gentle and clear, and she is able to transfer a lot of information in a very short time frame. I like that there is a lot of practical work alongside reflection of our own experiences and societal expectations.
Feeding and Carrying was my second course with Slingababy.
This course gave me another tool to add to my tool box, not only in terms of technique but in the way of approaching the subject and giving the options.
Lorette is a great teacher, that knows how to make her "students" be passionate about the topic. She shows you the path, but the choice is yours.
The course presented an ideal mix of theoretical knowledge, combined with practical skills, useful to implement in cases encountered in babywearing consultations, and more.
Amazing in depth, unbiased training. Very empowering and uplifting.
Just finshed my Slingababy training in New Zealand! It was so amazing! I have learnt so much more and Lorette is such an amazing teacher. I loved everything about it!
I trained with Slingababy when Lorette came over to New Zealand (Sept 2016). Wow what an experience, I would do it all again in a heart beat. It was worth every cent. I was amazed at how much I learnt after the first day and it meet every expectation and more. Lorette is such a kind, caring and passionate teacher. Thank you for taking the time to teach us, it was a valuable experience I'll always treasure.
Recently finished my consultancy 4 day training with Lorette, What an amazing experience and amazing tutor. It was very intense and I learnt more than I imagined possible. I still feel in a little bit of a daze from it all lol!, So so much to learn it was more than worth every penny. Lorette is such a kind and caring teacher. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to learn more about aiding others to carry. x
