COVID-19 update - helix baby remains open! 24 march 2020
After the Prime Minister’s statement of “lockdown” last night, Helix Baby’s online shop will remain open.
My fellow volunteers and I made the decision today to completely CLOSE the Salisbury Sling Library for hires for the foreseeable, most likely the next 3 months.
However, life goes on and women are still giving birth during this worrying time. This is why I have made the decision to keep my online shop open, so slings and carriers are still available to those who are in need.
Most of my stock will be available for postal delivery and some I have here at my home, so doorstep pick ups (from SP1 3PR) are also an option. I will also still be offering online consultations via Zoom for those who need help/advice.
For other parents/caregivers, a sling could really come in handy now more than ever.
Whether you are stuck at home isolating or you are one of our AMAZING “critical workers” helping us get through this unique and worrying situation, a sling could help you:
- look after your youngest whilst you have the other siblings home from school to also entertain/feed/support/etc,
- keep your child close when you have to go out and about, so you can stay the safe “social distancing” 2m away from others,
- if you are now working longer hours, using a sling whilst you are at home is a great way to reconnect/bond with your child, help them feel more secure and encourages sleep.
If you are wanting a sling/carrier during the UK “lockdown” period, please browse my shop, I am also offering a FREE FITTING online consult with every sling/carrier purchase via Zoom.
If you need further support using or choosing a sling/carrier, firstly have a look at my TUTORIALS video page. You may find the information you need there. If not, please contact me directly for advice. I am also offering online consults via Zoom at the cost of £5 per 15 minutes if you would like further help.
