Peer Supporter Training Courses
As part of the Born to Carry team I offer Peer Supporter courses in Kent and surrounding areas.

Would you like to offer peer support at sling meets, a sling library or as part of your job?
Do you feel that you would like to have more knowledge about safety, the different types of slings available and how to use them?
Then this course is for you!

This is a Peer Supporter Course, not a Consultancy Course, and as such does not cover advanced techniques such as back carrying. 

contaThis course would suit those who love carrying and would like to feel more confident at helping other parents safely, those helping at sling libraries, doulas, midwives, nurses, antenatal / postnatal teachers.

You can reserve a space with a £30 deposit. 
The full amount of £90 is due two weeks before the start of the course.
Concessions are available for low incomes and NHS workers, please get in touch to discuss.
