KangaWrap
What is a KangaWrap?

A KangaWrap is a fair-trade baby wrap developed by midwives at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells hospital following their award-winning research into Kangaroo Care (skin-to-skin contact). Made of stretchable, organic cotton, the KangaWrap provides optimum support for mother and baby, from newborns to babies up to 15Kg. Read more about the KangaWrap story

Trade4Life was set up to specify, source, promote and sell the KangaWrap to hospitals, users, retailers and sling libraries. Staffed by volunteers, the maximum amount of profit goes towards helping mums and babies around the world via Asha-India.org and Christian Aid.
