Did you know there is a “Baby Wearing Week”. We didn’t, until we were contacted by Babes In Arms, with an offer of 20 Ergobaby Carriers to help us celebrate.  These carriers are fantastic, and give Mum free hands, whilst keeping baby snug and safe.  Often out of reach for many of the Karinya women, this gift of 20 carriers to use and give away was heaven sent.  Thank you to this wonderful corporation.  A number of other women’s services around Australia and New Zealand were gifted carriers as well.  This wonderful organisation also supports the Hamlin Fistula Hospital with $1 from every sale.

We must admit the email containing the offer of baby carriers was rather a surprise, and it took us a little while to assess!  The email recipient (and our blog writer) was not familiar with baby carriers so did seek the advice of our midwives on staff, before responding.  The Ergobaby  baby carriers were very welcome indeed and the benefits of these products were extolled amongst the casework team.  The offer was accepted. True to their word, the wonderful team at Babes In Arms duly forwarded us 20 beautiful Ergobaby Carriers later in October. Simply fantastic.

Many of them have found new homes with very grateful new mothers.  We have a few kept in store, and they are progressively finding new babies to carry.  Our thanks indeed to this very generous corporate gift from Babes In Arms.
