    Episode 5 - Our Babies Expect to be Carried

    This week Lysanne is joined by the brilliant Dr Rosie Knowles. A practising GP, Rosie has authored the book "Why Babywearing Matters" from the Pinter & Martin series as well as founding the website https://www.carryingmatters.co.uk with a treasure trove of informative articles all about carrying. In this episode we discuss the fourth trimester, the first three months of a baby's life, and why carrying is so vital for their (and our!) survival. Carrying is our biological norm as a species and Rosie goes into lots of detail about the biological and physiological effects of carrying on both the child and the wearer. Enjoy!
