About Liberty Slings
Who are Liberty Slings?
My name is Billie and I am the founder of Liberty Slings. I set up the company in 2005 after falling in love with the natural way of parenting that I witnessed whist working as a midwife in West Africa. This is where my passion for baby wearing began!
After many years working as a registered nurse in the U.K I had a change of career and qualified as a midwife in 2002. My experience has been working and caring for adults and children for over 25 years..... where I have gained thorough experience in the field of parental and natal health.
I returned to the UK to spread the word only to find the price of slings available on the market at that time made them prohibitive to the every day parent... I therefore embarked on a mission to design and make safe, stylish and affordable baby slings! Voila.....Liberty Slings was born.
In 2011 my husband Robin joined the company along with 2 full time seamstresses Julia and Claire - who still work with us 5 days a week! Thanks to Robin's input we have been able to spread the word! We now have UK 37 retailers, 3 overseas distributors and very proud to supply an NHS midwifery department, baby wearing libraries and many charitable organisations.
We are now a team of nine, each one of us committed to baby wearing and delivering the service you expect and deserve.
We are always available for help and advice so please feel free to get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you enjoy and love our baby slings as much as we have creating them.

After some soul searching, a few well-intentioned 'green' initiatives, we think we have figured out what Liberty Slings and the environment is all about – quality. This is the key factor because it means that the products we make are designed to last. Your sling will make it to child number two, three, four and more.
Liberty Slings are made from natural fibers, in an environmentally safe way and on our own doorstep here deep in the heart of the Cotswold Oxfordshire.
Our green policy is less about any one thing and more about making thoughtful decisions every day.
