Hello! I'm Rachael
I'm a Scottish Baby & Toddler Specialist and Sling Consultant, based in Dalkeith with Eirik (age 4), and Tauriel the cat!
I discovered my interest in baby and child development during pregnancy, and quickly fell down the rabbit hole of learning! I'd previously worked a lot with children, but grew an ambition to support parents through education and an empathetic ear, and started a journey of learning with CalmFamily, and then Slingababy, in early 2019.
I'm an advocate of babies and children's rights, and resonate with autonomous life learning. I have an interest in environment respecting choices that we can make as parents, and in raising children without the pressures of strict gender roles!
I have recently created a wonderful learning community with my colleague, Hannah, called The Bonnie Parenting Community! You can find the link to join us below!
