As Cortney shares, the perfect carrier is the one that fits you best! One carrier might be your best friend’s favorite but not work for you. It’s ideal to try different styles of carriers until you find the one that’s perfect for you.

Thankfully more and more brands are size-friendly!

Here’s a resource where you can see all of our recommended carriers for plus size babywearing. Below are some examples for you to see plus size moms wearing different carriers.

I started working as a doula in 2012, and shortly after that, worked in a retail store that sold baby carriers, among other things. While on staff there, a co-worker encouraged me to take the Center for Babywearing Studies introductory educator’s course. There I found a wealth of knowledge and a new sense of purpose that could go hand in hand with my doula work.

I enjoyed integrating babywearing group classes and private consultations into my work on the East Coast. However, when the time came to move, I dreamed of my home state of New Mexico. I was ready to take my babywearing education career and make it something more. Noticing a strong babywearing community, but a lack of network between spread out-groups, as well as gaps in accessibility and resource on many levels. I wanted to create a collaborative, culturally mindful, and fluid space, full of flexibility and growth together. Finally, the idea grew into a formal organization in 2015. I cannot wait to see where we go from here.
