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

Today was supposed to be our Ashford Dobbie's sling meet. Think my girls have been missing coming along.
If there is anything you need help with, please let me know! @ Ashford, Kent

These are worrying times. Our children will benefit from being held close. If you need help with a carrier you have at home or you want to hire one of ours, please get in touch! We will find a way to help you and your family get through this together! ... See MoreSee Less

To keep you updatedWe are keeping a close eye on the most relevant and up to date advice and guidelines with regards to Corona Virus.

At this moment all our scheduled meets are going ahead as planned.
We ask people to wash their hands before trying on a carrier.
Returned carriers will be kept separate and if someone wants to hire a carrier that has been returned on the day, we have steam cleaners to give the carriers a thorough clean before going out again.

If you have been unwell before you need to return your hire, please contact us so we can arrange a doorstep return instead of you attending a meet. We are also happy to accept returns by post.

If you are worried about attending a meet, and would like to hire a carrier, please contact us and we can arrange doorstep hire and fittings at our usual cost of £2 for doorstep hire and £5 for hire and fitting on top of normal hire cost.

We also offer consultations in your own home.

For online support and advice you can join our Facebook group here: www.facebook.com/groups/eastkentslings/

If things do change, we will post on social media to alert everyone, so please do check the page before travelling to a meet.
