Now you can find the babywearing and natural parenting support you need, right here at Uppymama.
Introducing Uppymama Independent Babywearing Consultants (UIBC) – the latest addition to the Uppymama team! Learn from a wise and inspired parent in the Uppymama village who is eager to share nurturing wisdom with you.
Our dream at Uppymama is that all parents can comfortably and safely wear their babies. We now have 6 certified UIBCs across Canada and the USA to help reach this dream.
Each UIBC is an experienced parent who has worn and nurtured at least one infant well into toddlerhood. Each consultant is able to teach you to wear your baby in a variety of positions, from newborn to preschool age. The consultants can also provide advice, support and classes about babywearing, breastfeeding, and parenting naturally. UIBCs will hold babywearing meet-ups where mothers and fathers can connect with each other, learn about babywearing, and support each other in their parenting journey.
“In a different era we would have had an entire village of mothers to journey alongside us. We would offer help and wisdom and accept help when we needed it. We would have seasoned mothers to advise and support us and we would in turn share our wisdom with others. In a culture of increasing isolation we want to recreate a sense of ‘the village’ through the support we offer at Uppymama.”

UIBCs will also offer private babywearing consultations, in person and via video conferencing, through paid booked appointments. UIBCs will also sell Uppymama’s new line of Canadian made machine woven wraps – Uppywear.
