Close and Calm Born to Carry Stretchy Wrap and Skin to Skin Tops Only Peer Supporter Course. We are delighted to be able to offer a 6 hour course, enabling those who attend to become Peer Supporters, who can show other parents how to use skin to skin tops and the baby box wrap - in situations where the medical staff deem the baby is stable enough. The Course will be accredited by Born to Carry and is a modified version of the Peer Supporter Course, focusing the practical side on only the Stretchy Wraps and Skin to Skin tops, and with additional information relevant to the Hospital / Neonatal Setting and also covering when the use of each may or may not be appropriate. The attendees will learn about carrying safety, the benefits of carrying your child close, inviting inclusivity, the role and limitations of a peer supporter, communication, as well as the practical side of using and showing parents how to use the tops and wrap. The in person course would then have a little follow up task via video / online. This course enables them to show parents, but not to train other staff in delivering teaching - that would need both a baby carrying consultancy and a train the trainer course - if you do ever want to go down this route do let me know and we can signpost you to the relevant places.
