Did you know BWI is a volunteer run organization?
As life goes on, volunteers move on as well. But as we lose volunteers and educators, we need to replace them, or we will not be able to continue helping the community.

We are in need of more volunteers! If you like babywearing a little bit, and want to help out in some way, check out the graphic below and take a look at the frequently asked questions.

If you’d like a meeting in your area, but we do not currently have one. It probably means we do not have any volunteers nearby. You can change that!

Please let us know if you have more questions!

About Val Shaikh

Val lives in West Houston's Energy Corridor but will always be a Midwest girl at heart. She has three boys and a wonderful husband. She started wearing her oldest son in 2012 to help soothe him, because he was colicky and never wanted to be put down. She learned about more baby wearing options when pregnant with her second, motived by the knowledge that having two children 19 months apart would be much easier if she could wear her younger son for naps and nursing. Even as her younger son grows into a more independent toddler, Val still finds babywearing an extremely valuable and necessary part of being as a stay-at-home mother. Aside from volunteering as secretary and VBE for BWIGH, Val is a member of several local moms groups, Hike It Baby, and online babywearing communities. She also enjoys the occasional workout, cooking, sewing, and crocheting; she is also a math enthusiast.
