Katie Meakin, owner of Jacq and Rose, and Soshanna Taryn Shari Hayhoe of East Kent Slings join our team of brilliant consultants this week. They’ll be offering consultations, workshops and pop ups in the Reading and East Kent areas. With 15 years of babywearing between them they bring a huge amount of experience and skills to Wear My Baby. The legendary Emily Williamson of South London Sling Library also joins Wear My Baby this week as a Special Advisor.
Katie started her babywearing journey with her second child in 2012. She fell head over heels in love with woven wraps and began investigating the science of weaving and blends of yarns. Winning a wrap design competition was the spark that led to Katie’s own woven wrap company, Jacq and Rose, which she launched in 2016. Katie trained as a Consultant with the School of Babywearing and is a volunteer at Reading NCT Sling Library. She joins the Wear My Baby team as an Associate Consultant.
Soshanna, a qualified teacher, started babywearing 11 years ago and has carried all three of her children. She joins Wear My Baby as a Senior Consultant. She trained and qualified and Consultant with the School of Babywearing in 2016 after a decade of running sling meets and volunteering at sling libraries. Alongside her Consultancy work, she runs the non-profit East Kent Slings and its large team of volunteers.
We are so very excited to have Katie and Soshanna on board. If you’d like to speak to us about joining our team of Babywearing Consultants, get in touch.
