Healthcare Providers

Baby carrier education is an invaluable tool for many healthcare providers who work in the fields of prenatal care, infant health and development, lactation support, birth work, attachment, and public health, to name only a few. Babywearing as a practice compliments a variety of professions:

  • Neonatalogists, pediatricians and OB-GYN care
  • NICU nurses and staff
  • Midwifery
  • Doulas (birth and post-partum care)
  • Lactation consultants
  • Body work professionals: chiropractors, osteopathy, and infant massage therapy
  • Public health, education and outreach
