Baby slings

I have spastic diplegia. Is it possible to carry a baby in a sling with a walker? If not, what alternatives are there? Thanks

    Hi Nuala

    I have no actual experience of this myself and hopefully you will receive some replies from personal experience but I don't know if you have heard of an organisation called DPPI (Disability Pregnancy and Parenthood)...it may also be worth contacting them? http://www.dppi.org.uk/

    best wishes :-)
