Midwifery Weigh Slings — Happy Day from Cotton & Steel


Happy Day from Cotton & Steel, Rifle Paper Company

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



When this fabric arrived in our workshop, it was more beautiful than it had looked when we had ordered it, truly, a Happy Day! These slings are from the Happy Day collection by Talk to the Sun for Cotton & Steel Fabrics.

Two choices: bouquets of orchids in rich purples and plums, and a coordinating pattern of blue triangles with shadows of plum.

You’ll want one of each!

Originally made at the request of the local midwives’ office, these slings are now distributed across the country by Pure Midwifery and the Stevens Company (medical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.   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).

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 .

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

A portion from each sale is donated to our local Women’s Shelter and to Doctors Without Borders in support of their global midwifery programs.
