West Portland Babywearing is a baby carrier education and babywearing support group for the West Portland Suburbs of Washington County, Colombia County, and Yamhill County. Our goal is to provide accessible babywearing education to all types of caregivers in our local communities.
This group began in September 2018 after the dissolution of Babywearing International. Our volunteers wanted did not want their communities to lose access to carrier education, so they decided to form a peer-to-peer support group to continue the cause.
Two of our educators have babywearing and babywearing related businesses, and at this time are co-owning the group under their business entities. We hope to form into a non-profit or another independent LLC business in the near future.
We are offering free monthly meet-ups, access to learning library of baby carriers that will hope to lend out to the general public for a small fee soon, and occasional paid private classes as well.
We are still working on organizing and figuring out the best ways to serve our community. Please pardon us during this growth process. If you have suggestions or want to become a volunteer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
