About

The London Sling Shop

The London Sling Shop provides an online option for purchasing from a carefully curated selection of ergonomic slings & carriers. Every sling featured has been tried and tested by us, both as busy London mums ourselves, with our own children, and with the parents that we work with as Sling Consultants.

​We stock a range of newborn to toddler carriers, and a number of different options, from stretchy and woven wraps, to ring slings and buckled carriers for you to chose from.  We also offer the chance to come and see what we sell, to try out options and to hire them to test out at home, from one of our pop up locations in South East London.

We wish you all the very best in your journey carrying your little one and please do get in touch and let us know how its going.

Our Story

Rachel works as a midwife in South East London, and trained as a Consultant with the UK School of Babywearing in February 2017, when her second child was 5 months old, having found slings a hugely beneficial tool for parenting both of her children. 

Katharine was working as a Primary School Teacher before the birth of her daughter, when she discovered the huge joy of babywearing, almost from day one. She then trained as a Peer Supporter with the UK School of Babywearing and she has more recently become a Consultant with Slingababy.

Rachel & Katharine met through their shared interest in babywearing and its many benefits. They are both passionate about supporting & empowering others to parent confidently, with access to evidence based information and trusting their own instincts & decisions. Alongside other colleagues, both are founders of Takes A Village, a supportive space in East Dulwich for new parents which is home to one of The London Sling Shop's pop up locations.
