Originally made at the request of the local midwives’ office, these slings are now distributed across the province by Pure Midwifery and the Stevens Company (medical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!
This option of sling is made from a rich batik of all over frogs, in soft forest pond hues. Both sides of the fabric are equally coloured, and will well minimize staining. Due to the nature of batik fabrics, small flecks of wax resist from the batik process may remain on the fabric, but will wash out during normal washing. Wash as you would similar cottons — wash warm, dry warm or low.
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.
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!!)
