It is with mixed feelings that I write this blog post. After 13 years living in Dubai, the time has come for my family and I to make a change. We left Dubai last weekend to embark on an amazing adventure. With that, Luxe Carriers will follow us to wherever the road might lead.
Our first stop, is a two-month sabbatical in South Africa to soak up the southern sun. From there we will be travelling to our new home in New Zealand. I will continue to write my blogs and get in touch with the babywearing mums! I am looking forward to the new changes ahead.
Please do not fear, I am not leaving the UAE empty handed! Before departing Dubai, last month in addition to training the staff at Eggs & Soldiers, I have trained 12 birthworkers in Dubai to support new parents on the art of babywearing. Their details are below.

A big thank you to the lovely families that have allowed me into their lives to teach them about connection through babywearing. Thank you to the women I have met in the Dubai birthing community, you have been a wonderful support and, for this, I am truly grateful.
