I am a qualified babywearing consultant and the founder of Swindon Sling Library, which became Swindon and Devizes Sling Library, in 2018. The library has a selection of over 90 slings available for hire, via slingmeets and individual consultations.

Slingmeets, which I hold both in Swindon and Devizes, allow parents to find out about and try out different slings, as well as meet other sling users. Parents are welcome to bring their own slings, whether they are having trouble using them and need advice, or just want to show them off! And of course, if parents want to take a sling away to try before they buy (or if they just want a sling to take on holiday or for a specific event) then any of the slings are available for hire. Parents are not charged to attend slingmeets, however a voluntary donation of £1 per family would be greatly appreciated, to help cover the cost of room hire.

Slings may be hired for £4 per week. When hiring slings you will be required to pay a deposit (cash or cheque). This will be refunded, when you return the sling, unless the sling is damaged beyond what could be considered reasonable wear and tear.

Individual consultations can also be arranged. If held in my home, I charge £15. However, if you would prefer a consultation in your own home, I am willing to travel up to 25 miles. I charge between £20 and £30 depending on the distance. The price of consultations includes two weeks' hire of a single sling, or one week's hire of two slings. So if you do choose to hire, the consultation itself could effectively cost you as little as £7.

I am also available to do free sling demonstrations at antenatal or baby and toddler groups.

When weather permits, I organise sling walks. These walks offer the opportunity to socialise with other sling users, while enjoying some fresh air and getting some exercise. You don't need to own a sling in order to take part, as you can borrow one of the library's slings, for free. However, if you do wish to borrow a sling then let me know in advance, so I can make sure to bring an appropriate sling with me.

For full details of the library's services please read the Terms and Conditions.
