We are a chapter of Babywearing International serving the DC, Maryland, and Virginia Metro Area. At this time, we have five to seven monthly meetings around Northern Virginia, suburban MD, and in the District of Columbia. All are more than welcome to our current meetings as we work to grow and meet the needs of our members in Maryland and DC
Babywearing International, Inc. (BWI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support. The heart of BWI is our network of local chapters which provide free educational meetings and support within their own communities.
An important part of making babywearing a universally accepted practice is ensuring that BWI meetings, events, and online spaces are welcoming for people of all backgrounds.
Given our education mission, BWI is necessarily supportive of the basic tenets of social justice. Therefore, BWI does not condone silencing, tone policing, or otherwise oppressing marginalized groups, nor does BWI discriminate or permit discrimination by any member of its community against any individual on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, parental status, marital status, age, disability, national origin, or citizenship status.
