"I recently became a doula and my first objective was to start teaching babywearing, but for larger bodies. There are so many pictures out there of thin people babywearing and I wanted a safe place for people to come try carriers that wouldn’t need to be modified to fit them. I wanted them to feel included and to learn with no shame attached."
Black Babywearing Week is a gift, really, our sharing of our Melanated Magic and reminding the babywearing community at large that we are not an "other." We are not a "minority." This our culture, our heritage, our family connection to each other and our ancestors.
"I know that babywearing is going to be a part of his future. His wraps are more than just pieces of cloth, they’re an extension of my love and the fond memories that we’ve created." - Moderately Granola Mom
