Membership - What's Included?
The Babywearing Collective aims to provide you with both online and in person support as you navigate your babywearing journey. Join us, become a member and receive access to benefits and opportunities.
Different levels of membership are offered in order to respectfully cater to your needs and your growing experience. We aim to provide support and guidance, access to community resources and events, hassle free industry knowledge, education, and the ability to have a reliable and available point of contact.
We welcome all members including all experience levels and demographics without discrimination. We respectfully ask that in return, all those joining us here at the Collective do so with consideration of the diversity of our community.
We are working on a range of additional options for our members in conjunction with feedback received from our community following our inaugural ‘Wear All The Babies’ Babywearing Conference in July 2017. We look forward to launching these additional initiatives for our members following the Conference.
