I don't have a babywearing group.
I was too shy, or overwhelmed, or introverted to seek out a local group as I should have when we started wrapping, and by the time I felt more functional, I barely had a wrappee. Instead I watched Michelle's FWCC tutorial on You Tube on a continuous loop and perused TBW to improve my technique and learn the vast history of babywearing. But I know I missed something truly great; BWI groups are filled with mamas enthusiastic about wrapping and carrying, and that translates into a community spirit filled with love and support fueled by a shared passion.
In Tempe the strength of these bonds was magnified by the intensity of the conference and the intimacy of shared space. And on Sunday in Atlanta I saw again how a group of women with similar interests, yet vastly different lives, can experience great joy together.
BWI Atlanta could be my babywearing group.
