The Joy of Babywearing the Experience of Ingrid Gayle
Ingrid Gayle – Babywearing Educator (available to conduct babywearing consultations throughout the GTA).
I know, babywearing can be an exciting and at the same time overwhelming topic for many of us. As a mom, babywearing educator and the founder of Helina Baby™, my real passion is in teaching new parents and caregivers about child development, safety and the benefits of using a carrier.
I engage participants and give them an exploration experience with the various aspect of babywearing. I believe that learning the basics of babywearing can help solve a common problem that families encounter today- a lack of helping hands. It is a skill that can be easily learned and implemented to give parents the support they need to deal with their day-to-day chores.
How Can I help?
I offer babywearing consultations to parents as well as to health professionals such as doulas, midwives, lactation consultants, childbirth educators or any other professional who works with families.
My Consultations Focus On:
· The benefits of babywearing for mom and baby
· The advantages and limitations of the different types of baby carriers (stretchy & woven wraps, ring slings pouches, and soft structured carriers)
· Safe and physiologically correct positioning for child and parent
· The development of a baby’s hip and spine
· How to identify a supportive baby carrier, based on baby’s anatomy
You will have the opportunity to practice how to use a carrier with your baby (or with a demo doll if necessary) to gain practical experience. I create a warm and welcoming space for you to explore babywearing with a goal of giving you the tools enhance your life, your baby's life and the life of others.
