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.

COVID-19 Update: During the lockdown of the Covid-19 Pandemic I am unfortunately unable to provide face-to-face services. Please get in touch if you are in need of help and we can arrange an online consultation.

What 3 things would you like your clients to feel when they access your services.

1. I would like you to feel welcome. I am here to help anyone who wants to carry a little one, or a bigger one, your own or someone else's child. Doesn't matter what you look like, which football club you support, or whether you like Belgian chocolate or not 😉 When you come to me, I know it is out of a need/desire to carry and respond to your and the little one's needs.

2. I would like to give you space, to listen to your story, to find out why you want to carry and together we can find the right solution for you and your family.

3. I would like you to feel supported, in your choices, in your way of carrying, so that you are confident to carry your little one by yourself when you are home. And I would like you to feel safe that if you do feel unsure about something, that you know that I am just on the other end of the phone or email to ask questions.

What would you like to feel when you access my services?

How did you go from babywearer to babywearing business?

For me, from the very beginning it was always about spreading the love of babywearing. I was recommending it to everyone. ❤️ When we moved to Cambridge I volunteered at the sling meet there and soon after we moved to Kent, I trained as a babywearing peer supporter to have the extra knowledge so I was able to help parents and carers to carry their children safely and comfortably. A year later I trained as a Baby-carrying Consultant and Hold Me Close Consultancy was born! Fast forward to today and I can now train my own babywearing peer supporters! Can't wait to spread the love even further! 💞

What are the three things babywearing has given to you?

1. It's an amazing parenting tool, it can give you your hands back when you have more than one child to care for, or just to eat cake 🍰😉 Naps and feeding on the go. You don't have to worry about when you are going out when nap time comes along.

2. Being able to go where pushchairs can't, be it the underground, the beach, the forest, the quickest way to do the school run, to mention a few!

3. Amazing connections: with my girls, with lots of fantastic people in the carrying community, with lots of new parents and families and their babies. ❤️
