The Village Slings

The Village Slings is an extensive national and local community sling library, jointly facilitated by Samantha Gadsden Doula and Jenny Wren, a qualified Baby Wearing Consultant.

We have a huge selection of wraps and carries, including some beautiful high end wraps for weddings and special occasions (delivery costs of these will be slightly higher due to insurance costs).

During covid, we have gone online and are providing postal hire and mini zoom consultations.

Stock can be browsed at The Village Slings and you can contact us on Facebook or via email to to hire.

We are clearing out some of our older stock in our shop.

We are posting twice weekly so there maybe a slight delay.

Current hire rates are £25 for 6 week hire and £40 for 10 weeks hire and then £15 for a further 4 weeks ongoing, inclusive of postage . Return, insured, postage is to be covered by yourself, we can provide a label. Consultation costs via zoom are for donation to the library.

The Village Slings sits within The Village Pregnancy and Parenting Group, a donation based group that meets in Rudry, providing information and support throughout pregnancy, birth, the newborn period and beyond, with a growing national on-line support group The Village.

As a part of our eco and positive parenting ethos, we are also affiliated to Fill Your Pants, an eco parenting, period and cloth nappy seller, using our link will give you 10% discount sitewide on most non bundled items and send 10% of your purchase price to support the sling library.

Samantha runs a number of supportive groups for the child bearing year and beyond and supplies epfs, affirmations, crystals and more in her My Birth And Beyond Shop.
