Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Baby carrying

Hôpital de La Tour’s maternity proposes two physiological baby carrying ateliers. During these we discuss the benefits of baby carrying, show parents various baby carrying devices including wraps, and demonstrate how to use them in a safe and serene manner.
By carrying your baby, you are transmitting to your child what no children’s room installed with love, no crib, nor any comfortable pram could transmit: a feeling of well-being, security, warmth, movement, life”.
Felix Stauffer, biologist

Who is baby carrying for ?

These classes are for all parents who are interested in learning how to carry their baby in a totally safe, physiological and comfortable position.
Classes are given in French, so a basic understanding of the French language is necessary.

Our offer

An atelier (at most four couples) comprising two sessions of two hours each.

Session no. 1: theory, 2 knots using a wrap, and depending on the time available, a look at other baby-carrying devices.
Our advice: take this class before or shortly after your baby is born, if possible with your partner.

Our advice: come to this session with your baby and your partner.
