As it is time to lay 2016 to rest and welcome 2017, I want to give a big hug to the year.
I returned from my maternity leave in January after having enjoyed the first seven months of Alice’s life. I was able to run 12 courses with my daughter present before she needed more care than I could manage whilst looking after the budding consultants. I feel very privileged that I got to have her with me for such a long time.
So, as the year draws to a close, what did we achieve this year:
118 new consultants including 31 outside of the UK, that means we have now trained 284 Slingababy consultants!!
2 courses abroad including New Zealand
2 pilot peer supporter courses (read more here)
2 CPD weekends covering 4 workshops
The first Slingababy Family Camp
A new website
A new Facebook to help facilitate groups getting together for courses in locations other than Rugby area
The lovely Suzanne and Emily joining the team
And a relocation!
2016 has been a very busy year indeed!
Whilst I know many refer to 2016 as a year needing to be forgotten, I want to think of all the love that is generated through the carrying that we got to facilitate. Let’s see what 2017 has in store for us. If you want to stay updated, do sign up for our newsletter!
