Drop-in sessions and bookable Carrying Clinics are for help with your own sling or a quick fitting of one of our carriers to hire. Trained, experienced support for simple carrying needs.
Drop-ins are just that! Come any time within the session though try to arrive at least 45mins before the end to ensure there’s time to see you before we pack up. You can also book a slot near the start of the session using the ‘Book Now’ button on our consultation pages or Facebook page. We limit support to fitting one carrier if the session is busy- but you can come back as often as you like!
Carrying Clinics are mostly appointment only sessions so we can gather information about your needs beforehand as we have limited stock with us. However, if you do drop in we will of course help you as we always bring different carrier types with us. It is £5 for a 15 minutes fitting appointment, or £10 to fit and hire a carrier for 2 weeks. We can cover several options in the time allocated but if you feel you need a bit more time or help, you can book a double or triple appointment. Book via our facebook page or drop us an email.
You can check our stock and availability on our online catalogue – if you pre-register it can save time and make hiring smoother.

We take safety seriously so don’t generally teach back carrying in sling meets but will at Carrying Clinics in a double slot (£10 for 30 minutes). If you think you’ll need more time or professional input than is possible at a clinic or meet, we suggest booking a consultation.
Cash payments are preferred but we can take card. We don’t ask for a deposit against your hire, but you are liable for the value of the sling if it is lost or damaged in your care. Drop-ins are free to attend although donations towards refreshments and room hire are gratefully received so that hire fees can be invested back into stock. Respectfully we ask that you don’t bring your own refreshments to the Clinics held in Sheila’s Cafe- she has an assortment of reasonably priced drinks and snacks available to purchase.
