Meet our Volunteers!

We are the Oahu chapter of Babywearing International, a community group with non profit status. Our mission is to serve the community with babywearing education, advocacy, and networking. Our group holds many functions throughout the month that allow you to try out various carriers, learn about a new carry, or network with other babywearers! We offer free educational meetings in multiple locations, we maintain a lending library where members of BWI can borrow a carrier for one month, and we provide online resources and assistance through this blog and our online community Facebook group, Babywearing International of Oahu.

All of our volunteers have undergone the assessment and application process through Babywearing International (BWI) to become volunteer babywearing educators (VBEs) or chapter support volunteers (CSVs).

    Hello,
    My name is Carmen McLevin. I am from Alberta, Canada. I am currently on Kauai but will be in Oahu in a little over a week. I have created a Babywearing Yoga class and I would love to share a class with you and your members. No charge of course I just want to share my passion 🙂
    This is a class description of one of the classes I teach.
    Bālamātarau Yoga
    Baby Wearing Yoga
    – front carry position
    Deepening the connection with yourself, your baby, and creating a wonderful community so you can stay connected in a tangible way.
    Each 1 hour baby wearing yoga class includes three parts. Flowing yoga movements, slow methodical exercises for strength and awareness, and a little time to visit with your yoga room neighbours.
    Classes take into account reduced joint stability, reduced core strength, pelvic floor changes, and the need for outside connection and sharing.
    Please bring a water bottle, yoga mat, a onsie baby can wear during the asana (physical class) portion, your baby carrier, and any items you bring on a regular outing.
