Sling Studio

Babywearing in the heart of Leyland

The new sling studio in Leyland is a safe, comfortable, friendly space offering babywearing and parenting groups. Based in the heart of Leyland town centre, it is easily accessed from the motorway with plenty of cheap parking options nearby.

The studio is a safe space for all and is proudly breastfeeding, LGBTQIA+ and disability* friendly. 

There will be a full timetable published each month however the general activities will be similar week – by – week. Special events such as workshops and sling walks will be one-off dates throughout the months. 

*As the sling studio is only accessible via stairs, there will still be monthly sling library pop-up groups run from ground-floor accessible venues. It is really important that Central Lancashire Slings is for EVERYONE.

Unfortunately there is no space for pram parking at the studio. 

When attending, if you are able to bring your baby in arms, in your current sling/carrier, or in the car seat that would be preferable. The car park is less than 1 minutes walk.

If you are not able to attend without a pram (for example if you are walking here), please let us know beforehand and we’ll make sure to help you up the stairs with the pram.
