Originally made at the request of the local midwives’ office, these slings are now distributed across the province by Pure Midwifery and the Stevens Company (medical suppliers). If you’re already a client of either company, we encourage you to continue working with them! If not, or if you require customization of your slings, please contact us! Also, if you are an American or international client, please visit our etsy.com/shop/ecomum site for easier access to shipping options. Also, if you see a sling you like on our etsy site, but would like to purchase it here, let us know in your order comments.
These slings are 38″ long, and 29″ wide, with 2 sturdy metal D-rings at either end. By request, they can be customized to not have sewn in rings, so that you can use them with a removable caribiner instead of rings and avoid the noise of clinging in the washer. 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). We don’t sell caribiners either, but a climbing store (or Mountain Equipment Co-op online) will sell something sturdy.
Currently the slings are available in dark cotton prints, colourful cotton batiks, natural unbleached hemp/cotton muslin, or dyed hemp/cotton muslin (55% hemp / 45% cotton) as well as organic cotton prints. THIS LISTING is for a randomly selected cotton print sling made from quality quilting cotton. Images show the variety of patterns we have used in the past — your sling will be of a similar variety.
Weight of each sling varies with fabric selected.
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 .
