Zyanya is a babywearing consultant and postpartum educator. She's a mom of two, an American living in Amsterdam, for whom babywearing became an essential parenting tool. She is passionate about helping parents get two free hands to help them live their best life.
As a postpartum educator she focuses on helping couples prepare their partnership for life with a baby. She teaches a unique and important workshop that helps you and your partner get on the same page, connect, and open conversations about how to best support each other.
Zyanya assisted Kasia by helping her when Miko was born, sharing with her tips on baby wearing when they were preparing for a trip to Bali with the two small kids. Amazing skills! She has been also joining Baby meet-ups that Kasia organized for her students in Amsterdam, and shared her tips with parents and expecting families there, answering questions, and performing on the spot adjustments to the carriers. So super useful!
Here is where you can read more about Zyanya's work.
