My Story

As a mum of four I faced all those difficulties which new and not so new mums usually encounter: not having enough energy, time and sleep, trying to keep everyone happy and stay sane, keeping up with my career and personal goals while aiming to be a perfect mum and a perfect wife. During those years I found that many problems can be solved either by changing my attitude to a more positive one or with the help of some good practical solutions. This is when I discovered babywearing and it was both - positive and practical. I started off my journey with the ring as it was simple, fully adjustable, comfortable and elegant. I did not realize back then that baby wearing is a skill that needs to be acquired with patience and persistence. I did not expect that there will be a learning curve with its ups and downs. There were no YouTube videos back then. My only learning materials were the printed instruction and a couple of web articles. I tried wearing my daughter daily despite all the challenges till it became a natural and essential part of my life as a mum.
When my fourth baby was born I sewed my first ring slings. I gave most of them out as presents to my friends and truly enjoyed introducing them into the world of babywearing. I never considered sling as a garment or another baby item. Instead I looked at it as a statement of motherhood, a journey and a bonding experience. Soon I realized that my true passion was not only making unique, personalized slings, but helping mums have a positive start on their babywearing journey. Most of all I enjoyed giving them confidence and support, helping them make small steps towards a life time goal of building a strong bond with their babies. At this moment, I am a mum of four and just about to complete my own baby wearing journey, but the desire to pass this skill, help more mums experience positive motherhood more babies grow in a gentle and nurturing way is still with me. I have done thousands of hours babywearing and became a certified baby wearing consultant, but most important is that I love what I do and I still have a very long way to go …

From then on babywearing has always been one of those little solutions, which had a huge impact on me and my babies’ wellbeing. Lots of things that were so frustrating or seemingly impossible became realistic and even enjoyable. With my second and third baby, I was already an experienced mum, but I was still discovering lots of new and very inspiring ways babywearing could help me. Most importantly I noticed how smoothly I transitioned from being pregnant to taking care of the newborn, how I managed through the tough times with my babies’ colics, teething, separation anxiety and other turmoil. I realized how baby wearing helped me keep my family united and our family life all-embracing. I loved discovering new slings and trying different positions. While learning new techniques I appreciated the challenges as knew they will provide me with the new degrees of freedom.
