Hi! My name is Cristina Leal and I’m a Certified Babywearing Educator. I received my certification through the Center for Babywearing Studies. I have a Master’s in Education/Developmental and Psychological Studies. My background in Child Development and Cultural Psychology research led me to study how caregivers around the world help their babies and families thrive. Babywearing is a cultural practice in many cultures that has tangible benefits for both baby and wearer.
I want to help you find the most comfortable way to carry your baby. There is no one carrier or method that is best for everyone and every situation – it all depends on you and baby. I have years of experience wearing both my children and helping caregivers both through my consulting work and as a volunteer with Babywearing International of the Bay Area.
I specialize in one-on-one and small group instruction. I am located on the Peninsula in the San Francisco Bay Area and can travel from San Francisco to San Jose. I understand how hard it is to get out of the house with a newborn (or even with a newborn and other children to care for!). Contact Me to help get you set up with how to carry your baby comfortably, securely, and even stylishly!
