New Year, New Location and New Dates!

2021 has been an interesting year! While there’s still be distruption, Sling Library sessions were able to come back in April and ever since September they’ve been getting busier and busier and busier! As have consultations, workshops and online consultations too! Which has been amazing to see.

Looking to 2022, Sling Clinic will be back at both Kingston Town Children’s Centre and Barnes Children’s Centre. And then to keep up with the increasing demand I will be adding a brand new location – Old Malden Childrens Centre!

All of these sessions are completely FREE to attend (although donations are welcome). They are small group friendly informal sessions, perfect for those who have a couple of questions, would like a quick fit check or have a fair idea of what they want to try and would like like to try it on in person or hire to try before they invest in their own. Booking is essential and you can find the dates for each venue and the booking form here.

For those needing more indepth help, private consultations in my home, clients homes or online are back from the 5th of Jan. These are the perfect way to explore a number of options and really delve deep into how to use them and become competely confident using whatever you choose.

Once you have found the right option for you the Sheen Slings webshop is here for you! Carrying an increasing range of slings, carriers and accessories – all purchases come with the added bonus of me! I care much less about what you buy and much more about whether you can use it and that it add value to your like … so all carrier and sling purchases come awith a free 20 minute online video fitting appointment that you can book at anytime if you are at all unsure. And all my clients – are always welcome to send me a photo to double check fit and/or ask any questions. I want to ensure you love carrying and all the products in the shop are carefully curated based on what I know works for a wide range of parents and babies. They are all things I have seen work time and time again for families of all shapes, sizes and needs. Most are also things I have either used personally myself or wish had been available at the time for me to use personally!

Finally, I am continuing to build my learning zone with ever more tutorials, reviews and frequently asked questions. So if you have a question and can find it here please do ask!

Wishing you a very happy 2022 and really looking forward to welcoming many of you in the New Year.

Kingston Sling Clinic Is Back!!

I feel like it I have waited forever to be able to finally announce this news – since the last Kingston session back in March that was sadly cancelled just 22 hours before I was due to be there. But at last! Here we are! Kingston Sling Clinic is back from Monday 26th of April.

I have a new slot and a new format! I will be there once a month on a Monday, 10-12pm. It is a longer slot than before but instead of drop in, there will be 10 minute bookable slots (with 5 minutes between each family to allow cleaning of demo dolls, touch points and time to fill in hire forms etc as needed). Booking is essential and you can do so here

We have dates booked in for April, May, June and July and you can find the full information on dates, when, where etc here.

I am so happy to be able to welcome families back to these low cost sessions and to be seeing clients face to face (albeit behind masks) once again! I am crossing my fingers that my other venues (and hopefully some new ones too) will also be able to return soon – so do keep an eye open for news of more dates and more locations.

If the current dates don’t work for you or if you need more help than can be offered in a 10 minute slot then please do get in touch to book a one to one consultation – either face to face in my home or yours or online via Zoom. Or if you don’t feel quite ready yet to come in person – all my socially distancing friendly services will still be running. Including postal or doorstep collection hires and online consults.

Looking forward to welcoming many of you in Kingston over the coming months!
