Hi, my name is Özge, a mother of two (Rüzgar & Deniz) and wife to Emre...

After working as an engineer for ten years we welcomed our second baby. Babywearing helped me a lot to rejoin into daily life with my newborn. I could take care of both the new baby and my four year old at the same time. I never had to say “no we cannot go to the park, we cannot do this, you have to wait for that…”.

With my first baby, babywearing was just for a fun walk near the river. But with the second one it was a game changer. To learn and experience more I joined a training program from Die Trageschule in April 2018. That changed a lot in my perspective and understanding of babywearing. I was ready to learn more and spread the love of babywearing…

Before my maternity leave ended my husband came with a job proposal from abroad. Good for him but what about me? I did not want to be a working mom with a one year old and five year old in a foreign country. I see lots of new moms coming from different countries and trying to keep up with the daily life with their little ones. How could I help? With my training and love of babywearing I decided to start consultations and in January 2019, Vira Sling Babywearing Consultancy was born.

To deepen my knowledge and experience I joined VDC (Vereniging van Draagdoek Consulenten). It is a collaboration of babywearing consultants all over the Netherlands & Belgium. We come together to share experience and knowledge, and we continue to learn from different schools and professionals…

Later I got my “Advanced Course” training, another 3 day full with information, wraps and carriers. Finally I completed my certification with Die Trageschule in March 2021.

I am happy to answer your questions
