Babywearing of Hampton Roads

Keeping caregivers and children close since 2013

About Us

Babywearing of Hampton Roads is a local babywearing support and education nonprofit organization. Our mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support.

BWHR supports this mission by hosting monthly meetings and a variety of meetups and special events throughout the year. We also maintain a lending library to provide caregivers the opportunity to try different carriers. Our Babywearing Educators and Chapter Support Volunteers provide assistance and guidance at our meetings and online. Our volunteers are listed here:

Babywearing Hampton Roads meets the first Saturday of the month in Virginia Beach, the second Saturday of each month on the Peninsula, and the third Friday of each month on the Southside. All monthly meetings are free & open to the public.
