Midwifery Weigh Sling — batik cottons – Confection


100% cotton  batik midwifery slings, made in Canada, with 20 years experience.





Shipping note — if ordering one or two slings within Canada, and would like them to ship by untracked letter mail service at $5.00 / sling, please put a note in your order, and excess charges will be refunded.

These  hand dyed batiks are from Moda Fabrics, from their Confection collection — all so gorgeous, you’ll want to gobble them up.

Fun Fact: The Maidenhair Fern is often used for heavy menstrual cramps, and reducing swelling, but, other than in this beautiful batik fabric, you should probably stay away from it during pregnancy. Like the Maidenhair Fern, this Blue Raspberry Maiden fabric has a light, delicate feel — but unlike it’s name sake, the fabric is strong and durable for supporting newborn babes.

And, the BlueBerry Larkspur reminds me of the ornate tiled floors of the Alhambra in Grenada Spain.

These slings are made from a soft light batik, dyed in  rich deep hues.  Due to the process of creating batik fabrics, there may be some small dots of wax or resist residue left on the fabric — this will disappear during the first wash, and does not in any way compromise the integrity of the sling.

Originally made at the request of the local midwives’ office, our midwifery weigh slings are now distributed across the province by Pure Midwifery and the Stevens Company (medical suppliers).

These slings are 38″ long, and 29″ wide, with 2 sturdy metal D-rings at either end.    Please note that weigh scales are NOT included with the slings, and unfortunately we don’t carry them (please consult the two companies above if you need one).   Also, they are intended for weighing babies, not carrying them.

These make an excellent gift for the midwife, or midwifery student in your life — or get one for your own child’s birth to have as a memento     .

Made in Canada by ecomum. (who feels truly honoured to be so close to so many babies in their first moments in plein air!!)
