Catherine Dean, Babywearing Consultant
I first realized the benefits of babywearing after the birth of my oldest daughter in 2011. Armed with my trusty Ergo, I was able to soothe my "high needs" child and survive the first tough year as a new parent. Now a mother of two, babywearing continues to play an important role for me in managing life with a busy preschooler and a baby.
Deeply influenced by my background in anthropology, biology, and the social sciences, I believe that families of all types and parenting styles can benefit from incorporating the practice of babywearing into their lives. I have a particular passion for helping families dealing with reflux, food intolerance, and other gut issues.
I currently serve on the Board of Directors of Babywearing International, Inc. and I am a Master Babywearing Educator with Babywearing International of Central Virginia.
As a Certified Babywearing Consultant, I have been working hands-on with families in the Richmond, Virginia metro region since 2013. My goal is to create happy, healthy, more confident families through babywearing education and support. I look forward to working with you!
