Why attending a Babywearing training?

Carrying babies is one of the most ancient and natural practice of all mothers and many cultures pass it from generation to generation. It is the most spontaneous motherhood attitude in all mammals. Yes, we are mammals!

We need to restore this attitude in the West: its correct practice and safety are granted by professional’s qualified support. Starting from the last month of pregnancy or at child’s birth, the Consulente del Portare® consultant supports parents in choosing the most suitable carrier and shows them the safest techniques to wear it from a functional and ergonomic point of view, both for parents and children. Parents become more and more able and children will always have an ergonomic physiologic position during their growth.

 

The structure of The Study Center Scuola del Portare®

We offer our parents three lessons courses.

  • Basic: from pregnancy until the baby has a head self-control.
  • Advanced: from baby’s head 7 back self-control on.

Each lesson has its space for sharing experiences and a technical one.

Courses can be individual or groups.

As an alternative we also offer personal counseling.

What do we need?

  • The baby J
  • Non-slip socks and comfortable clothes
  • Cakes, biscuits, almonds and lot of joy to share … we will organize for teas and brews.

During the courses you will touch and test different woven wraps / slings/ ergonomic carriers, etc.

 

Carrying path

We do believe that Carrying is a Path (often abandoned if we don’t have the right aid), we suggest to profit of the Carrying Path, made of 6 meetings, offering to parents the opportunity to experience themselves what being” carried and contained” means since the beginning of their personal and individual growth.

 

Bump carrying

corso-pancioneThe use of a woven wrap during the last months of pregnancy is the best possible way to offer to mothers and babies the essential progressive competence needed.

It is a postural aid because of the pregnancy tiredness of the last period without replacing or impinging muscle.

It helps in handling the woven wraps: at babies birth the wrap will smell mother and the smell will be immediately recognized.
