Babywearing International, Inc. (BWI) was a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission was to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support. The heart of BWI was our network of local chapters which provided free educational meetings and support within their own communities. All BWI chapters were led by Volunteer Babywearing Educators (VBEs) with extensive knowledge of different types of baby carriers and babywearing safety, and Chapter Support Volunteers (CSVs) that aided the chapter in non-educational tasks.
We regret to inform you that as of 8/31/2018, Babywearing International has ceased operations in the process of filing bankruptcy.
