The Second European Babywearing Conference is taking place in Bristol, UK from the 19th – 21st of June 2015.

Parents and professionals from the UK, Europe and the world are gathering in Bristol to learn more about babywearing with:

keynote speeches from world-renowned and respected babywearing professionals and researchers.

dozens of babywearing workshops  from sling and carrier safety to professional development workshops, taster sessions of sling dance, using slings for labour and birth, workshops for children and parents with disabilities, kangaroo care, supporting breastfeeding and much more.

an exhibition hall with the world’s most famous brands and other babywearing businesses.

“The Conference is bringing together sling and carrier manufacturers, retailers, educators and consumers from around the world. There are many benefits to parents of carrying their babies in a sling or carrier – or babywearing, as it’s now become known – and so many benefits to babies and older children too. We plan to fill the city of Bristol with more babywearing fans than it will have ever seen before. Any profits from the Conference will fund Babywearing UK, which is a social enterprise that provides information, resources and training for parents and professionals.” says Victoria Ward – organiser and founder of the School of Babywearing.
