Welcome to Lift Me Up: Babywearing to Thrive! We're excited that you have found us and we would love to share with you all that babywearing has to offer! Did you know that babywearing can help reshape your baby's head? ...that it can provide optimal hip and spine development? ...and allow mom or dad to have hands free to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches?
Lift Me Up is an organization created by three mamas who wish to share with others the overall benefits and practicality that babywearing provides. Sarah fell in love with the health benefits of babywearing as a pediatric physical therapist. Kristin needed babywearing as a support for survival being a mom to four small children, two of which were immobile at the same time. Rachel embraced babywearing as a special way to bond with her son and make everyday life with small children less physically challenging.
As we gained years of experience wearing our own children, we have learned how much babywearing can benefit not only the child, but the entire family! After a long season of fervently passing the babywearing love on to friends by sharing carriers and information, we felt that it was time to broaden our outreach.
Lift Me Up's first seeds were planted in 2012 and it has been growing ever since! Our mission is to serve families who have children with special needs. For these families, we see babywearing as a unique tool that can benefit both the child and the caregiver. Our goal is to be able to provide a babywearing carrier for every desiring family with a child with special needs, across the country!
We need your support to carry out our mission! By sharing our website, sharing our facebook page, or by sending a donation, you are helping us to reach out and make a difference in the lives of families with children with special needs. The gift of babywearing will impact the child's physical, emotional, and social development and provide an opportunity to thrive!
