Babywearing through Pregnancy

Babywearing during pregnancy doesn’t have to be uncomfortable or difficult. Remember that baby wearing is there to make life easier and not more difficult.

In the early days of pregnancy, babywearing may be the last thing on your mind due to the nausea and vomiting that you may be experiencing. But as time progresses, and you start to feel better again, you may wish to start carrying your child again. There is no right or wrong way to carry your child during pregnancy. You do not need to change what you were previously doing. However, you may find that as your abdomen becomes bigger with your growing child, what was previously comfortable, may no longer be so.

Hip and back carries are likely to be the most comfortable option to carry your child. A Ring Sling may be a great option to carry your child away from your growing bump. Woven wraps can be used to carry your child in either front, hip or back carries, depending on comfort. The Evolve carrier can also be used to carry your child on your back with the waist buckle either above or below your bump. Back carries are likely to be easier using a wrap because of the greater flexibility of use.

Please remember that this information is based on a fit and healthy mother during a pregnancy without complication. If you have any doubt, it is extremely important to check with your treating Doctor or midwife before continuing to carry your child.
