Kind words about CBWS and Our Trainings
"Having extensive experience in Child Development myself, I was a bit concerned that a lot of the information would be repetitive for me. However, there was some amazing information presented that was completely new and incredibly useful for me and my work. I will definitely check out the other opportunities for learning from CBWS."
Kimberly Smith, Hugging Hazel
"I appreciate Joanna more than you can know! I have gained so much insight into how I can become better at being patient and understanding and becoming a better listener."
“The Foundations Training is for EVERYONE looking to become a better babywearing consultant. Joanna explains everything in detail and is always there if there are any doubts. Her practical guidance is awesome. The biggest tangible change I noticed since attending is a better understanding of all types carriers especially ring slings and back carries”
Charul Jain, GroovaRoo India
"It's important to know that Joanna is highly skilled and knowledgeable about her work and is generous with the participants. The value of this training cannot be overstated. The tools, resources, videos, downloads, in addition to the online classes are all really excellent. I looked forward to the homework and the classes (and I don't usually feel that way).
I would recommend this class to Attachment Parenting leaders and La Leche League leaders (I am both of these), as well as nurses, pediatricians, hospitals, IBCLCs, caregivers, and anyone serving families with infants and toddlers."
