It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the news that we will no longer be running the sling library sessions from now on. This decision has come due to a change in our personal circumstances, meaning it is just not possible for us to continue offering the service.
I began the sling library over 4 years ago to share my love and passion for carrying babies with families in and around Barnet. I feel so happy that we have been able to support parents to learn skills that will have a long lasting impact, for them and their children. We have run the service predominantly on a voluntary basis as a not for profit, and it really has been a labour of love, which has brought me great joy and purpose. However, it is time for me to take a step back and focus on our family and wellbeing.
Thank you to all of the wonderful families who have come to the sling library, I feel truly honoured to have been part of yours and your baby’s journeys in some way.
I would like to thank all of the volunteers who have shared and helped to support the hundreds of families we have seen in this time. I would particular like to thank the lovely Natasha, who has been a rock since she started – passionate, reliable and always with a smile!
I am also so grateful for the support we have received from other amazing services in Barnet, who we have had the pleasure working with.
I will still be offering consultations and some events, so please keep an eye out for more information on this and some changes. In the meantime you can find out more here and keep an eye on the Facebook page.
Wishing that you and your little ones continue sharing those cuddles and all the joy they bring.
