Babywearing Workshops & Sleep Consults
Virtual Babywearing 101
with ERDC resident babywearing expert & postpartum doula, Adriane
Baby carriers do good things for babies. They help with feeding cues, settle gassy stomachs, build strength, lessen crying and improve sleep. They also allow parents to keep their children close while attending to their own needs. In the city, the practical benefits are obvious - it’s simply way easier to maneuver in tight spaces like buses, stairways and shops with a carrier - oh, and your hands are free too! This class is ideal for expectant families, and families with newborns, who are interested in choosing a new baby carrier and learning about all of their babywearing options in one sitting.
Mending is a 6-week virtual circle facilitated by two or more East River Doula Collective doula facilitators for cesarean parents to be in community with one another The vision for this group is to create a safe, loving space for sharing, listening and building connections. We meet weekly on Zoom for one hour, and each week is on a specific topic. Come with your questions, challenges and triumphs!
