About us

Hello! We are Charlotte Filcek and Sally Hardy, and we run East Surrey Slings. We are passionate about supporting families to carry in whatever way works for them. We have two kids apiece and know just how powerful a tool slings can be in managing the chaos of family life. We are very lucky to have the help of volunteer peer supporter Helen Davies and sling library volunteers Felicity Manavis, and Hazel Janes.

Trained, experienced expertise

We have both been supporting families to carry for several years. We have undertaken formal training with multiple babywearing schools and keep up to date with continuous professional development events across the country. We have experience in a range of different special circumstances and are insured to provide tailored professional support.

Approachable, friendly support

We can support you whatever your carrying goals are. We are here to listen and support as well as to help you learn new skills. We recognise that parenthood is a rollercoaster that comes with many vulnerable stages and we will provide non-judgemental support that meets you wherever you are at that moment.

Across East Surrey

We are based in Redhill and Horley and support families in the surrounding areas of Reigate, Horley, Merstham, Crawley, Caterham and beyond. You’ll find details of the areas we cover on our consultation pages, and details of our drop-in and clinic locations via our session page.

We’re looking forward to meeting you- get in touch today!
