About Us

We are the Southern Maryland chapter of the national nonprofit organization Babywearing International. We serve St. Mary’s, Charles, Anne Arundel, and Calvert Counties. Babywearing International, Inc. (BWI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote babywearing as a universally accepted practice, with benefits for both child and caregiver, through education and support.

Our local chapter started in 2013, after several of our now leaders met in a park to talk about babies and babywearing and saw the need for a group to promote the ideal locally. The group has now evolved and is run by a team of over 20 volunteers from around the Southern Maryland area.
