Lysanne is mother of two children and has carried both of them exclusively, often at the same time! She runs the successful MotherRucker Carrying Consultancy in Worthing, West Sussex, UK and has done since November 2016.
Prior to having children and becoming a Carrying Consultant and Sling Library, Lysanne was a secondary school Drama Teacher teaching ages 11-18, and was a visiting GCSE Drama examiner for AQA. She made the decision that she wouldn’t return to the profession after 8 years, following the birth of our eldest as she had a new passion, babywearing.
When the previous owner, of what was then Worthing Babywearers, announced she was selling, she knew instinctively it was the right business for her. She had fallen out of love with teaching and wanted to help other parents to carry their children safely and comfortably. Having gone through antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety twice, Lysanne is in a unique position to be able to empathise and support those for whom this also applies. She is also an advocate for responsive, gentle parenting and believes carrying underpins it all.
Lysanne completed her Slingababy Consultancy Course in February 2017 and has also taken the Slingababy Feeding in Slings course. She has attended numerous CPD events to further her knowledge and she has led a tandem carrying workshop at The Wrap Show 2019.
