We are the only program that teaches you safe babywearing movements while participating in fitness activities.
There a lot of changes happening in your body after giving birth. You'll know what you should and shouldn't be doing after you've given birth.
As a baby's body is still developing, movement can play a big part of their healthy development. We'll show how to keep your movements safe for your baby.
You'll feel much more confident including babywearing into your daily living with the skills the skills we teach you in the Baby Wear Fit program.
Other than the Baby Wear Fit program, there are currently no other tools, training or information available that help a new family understand how to safely incorporate babywearing into their everyday activities.
Unfortunately most fitness instructors who teach babywearing fitness classes in your area do not have proper training. Most Fitness instructors only have basic fitness training – many who currently teach and mom and baby fitness classes do not even have their Postnatal Fitness instructor training (which is a scary enough thought!) let alone proper babywearing education.
There's a difference between being a Certified Fitness Instructor and a Certified Fitness Instructor who knows how to teach babywearing fitness classes.
Most Babywearing Educators do not have the hands on skills or the training to help you understand what comes after they help you select the best carrier and help you use it well. Selecting the right carrier for you and wearing it properly is only the FIRST HALF of the babywearing dynamic. What happens next, when you need to move and get things done?
Most Babywearing Groups online do not have trained Babywearing Educators running and coaching new families within their group. They are people who are super passionate about babywearing and they are a great place to try out new carriers, but they have a hobby.
No parent chooses to put their little one in harms way, but some of the exercises that parents perform while babywearing puts their little one at risk of injury for both the short and long term
So where does that leave a new family who is curious about babywearing?
Like most things in life, to do their own research and to ensure they understand themselves.
We have made sure the Baby Wear Fit Basic program, not only teaches you the basics about carrier styles, different ways to wear a carrier, but we also give you the tools and knowledge to be able to protect your postpartum body and your baby’s developing body.
