Baby Carrier Industry Alliance Update

There have been a lot of rumors going around recently concerning the legal future of babywearing. It is very important that we not to spread misinformation or hype about the safety regulations that are under development. This is a delicate matter that has been in process for nearly 5 years and the Baby Carrier Industry Alliance (BCIA) have worked very hard to increase awareness of the value of quality baby carriers and to support those in the baby carrier industry. They have a wealth of accurate information available on their website.
Please make sure you fully understand what is going on and what the history is before posting anything regarding the regulations and rumors of babywearing being banned. Even noted individuals in the babywearing community are not always clear about what is going on. If you wish to help or become more informed please start by reading the statement linked below on the BWI page.
Comments on this matter will be closely regulated and we will gladly try and help you understand if you are interested.

Since 2004, Cindy Sarlo has assisted mothers through the tender transitions of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum as an Educator, Birth Doula, & Photographer. Believing that thoughtful preparation and experienced support are key factors in birth outcomes, she is eager to share how you can experience the best birth possible!
In her own words:
My vision for “A Sacred Delivery” began when I announced that I was pregnant with the first of my eight little ones. Wonderful news was met with smiles, hugs, and . . . scary birth stories! The idea that most women were not designed for successful childbirth was rampant. Was this the result of random flaws found in most women? Or should we consider what came first . . . the intervention, or the need for intervention? Delving into the study of evidence-based care was the natural result. With each of my pregnancies, I became more aware of valuable options and the power of preparation. What a JOY it has been to both experience and witness empowered childbirth!
