Expert guidance & support

Hi, I’m Ruth, the face behind Carrying Connects.


A babywearing expert (and fellow parent) who can help you to carry comfortably, confidently and safely! Whether your are wanting the best baby carrier, sling or wrap for your newborn, toddler or pre-schooler, or you have questions about how to make sure that you baby is safe in a sling, I can help and advise you.

I’m a qualified, insured and experienced Babywearing Consultant based on the Wirral – that’s the sticky out bit between North Wales and Liverpool. I have the bits of paper to say I know what I’m doing, plus tried and tested babywearing techniques learned while bringing up my sons.

But you don’t want to know about that. You want to know how I can help you; how my experience can help you and your family as you navigate the parenting journey.


Babywearing for Beginners

Carry your baby confidently, comfortably and safely in a sling, wrap or carrier you love

As a new parent, I found the idea of choosing, and using a sling, overwhelming. There were so many different choices, and so much conflicting information – all I knew was that I wanted to hold my baby upright, and close to me.

The Babywearing for Beginners online courses transform you from babywearing novice to confident carrier!

As a babywearing expert, I have helped hundreds of families, just like yours, to carry their child confidently, comfortably and safely in a sling, wrap or carrier they love.

All of my expertise is now conveniently available in online courses, for you to enjoy at a time and pace that suits you.
