As of today Kansas City Area Babywearing is now Babywearing International of Kansas City!
What does this mean for our collective, you might wonder? We will continue to offer all of our babywearing activities (playgroups, meet ups, classes, etc) but have some additional resources in regards to continuing education, funding, and expanding our lending library. Better yet, we have joined forces with an international advocacy organization, well established in the babywearing community. This allignment gives our advocacy and education efforts more momentum and allows us to participate in a larger, more established babywearing collective.
Babywearing International of Kansas City is co-organized and led by Steffany Kerr and Kristin Gideon, and have undergone the assessment and application process through BWI to become Volunteer Babywearing Educators.
Steffany has been babywearing since the birth of her first child in 2007, and has been wearing ever since through adding two additional children to her family. Kristin started out wearing in 2009 with the birth of her son, and has spent the last few years honing her skills.
We are excited to launch this new chapter of Babywearing International in Kansas City and expand our advocacy and education efforts!
