Laura McCarthy, LCSW, PCD(DONA)
Laura is a licensed clinical social worker, practicing in PA since 2003. When her first child was born in 2006, she discovered the joy of babywearing. 7 years later, she combined her passion for educating and supporting families with babywearing, and Wear Your Little One was created! In 2013, Laura completed certification as an educator through the Babywearing Institute. Laura’s two children, and many others she cares for as a postpartum doula, have spent a great deal of time being worn, especially in her favorite ring sling. She acts as a volunteer co-leader of Pittsburgh Babywearers, and facilitates monthly meetings of a lively group of babywearing families. In addition, Laura gives presentations in the Pittsburgh area to groups of all sizes about babywearing techniques and safety, with the goal of normalizing babywearing. She continues to be impressed by the peaceful, positive, and productive benefits babywearing has for the baby and the wearer. It is Laura’a belief that babywearing is just one more tool caregivers can have to nurture their children, and can be beneficial to families whether baby is worn frequently or occasionally.
