Hold Me Close Consultancy was founded by Hannah, mum of 5 girls and the love of keeping them close to her heart.

We would like to empower parents and carers with advice and support to carry their children from baby to preschooler. We offer free advice at our sling meets and provide private consultations in the comfort of your own home for more extensive and in-depth support.

Hold Me Close

Wave of Light is an opportunity to join with bereaved parents, families and friends around the globe to commemorate all babies who sadly died too soon. It takes place at 7pm on 15 October.

To join the global ‘Wave of Light’, simply light a candle at 7pm local time on 15 October and leave it burning for at least one hour. This can be done individually or in a group, at home or in a communal space. Wherever you do this, you will be joining a global ‘Wave of Light’ in memory of all the babies who lit up our lives for such a short time.

The easiest way to transport a demo baby is obviously in a stretchy wrap 😍
This afternoon I went into the Reception class to tell to children all about how I help mummies and daddies carry their babies close and snuggly in a sling. We pretended to be in our mummy's tummy and talked about how that must feel and what we can hear ❤️
Then some of the children tried carrying the class' dollies in slings. I've left the slings there so they can have a play with them in the next few weeks! Future babywearers in training!

A workshop for those new to using woven wraps, with babies/toddlers of any age.

You’ll learn the principles of baby carrying safety, comfort and positioning, so you can confidently carry your baby whichever wrap or sling you use.

Find out about woven wraps and how to use and adjust them. You’ll learn two ways to carry your baby/toddler on your front using a long woven wrap. If there’s time we’ll also explore how to carry baby on your hip.

Our demonstration dolls are on hand, if you’d like to practice with them first.

Do you want to learn how to carry your baby comfortably and safely? There are so many options, that at a sling meet session we can't possibly show you all of them. Come to our workshop and we'll have more time to explore them with you!
