Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Babywearing workshops

The maternity unit at Hôpital de La Tour organises babywearing workshops where you can learn about one of the following soft baby carriers: stretchy wraps, woven wraps and using a ‘meh dai’ or ‘mei tai’, a traditional Asian-style sling.

We mainly focus on knots for carrying your baby on your front. This brand-new workshop is a great way to learn all the different knots related to your carrier. It can also help you to decide which soft baby carrier is right for you and your baby by trying our options.

Who can attend?

  • All mothers (whether you have chosen to have your baby at Hôpital de La Tour or at another facility)
  • Partners

You can attend our workshop before or after your baby is born and babies are always welcome.
