Liz Wagenknecht

Founder of The Babywearing Practice

Founder of Babywearing School Australia

Kangatraining Instructor

Liz grew up in a large family in Germany where all babies were worn in woven wraps. After the birth of her daughter in 2012, babywearing education and wrapping grew into a passion. Her dream was to educate families to wear their babies safely and to promote baby wearing as a parenting tool in Australia. She travelled to Germany to study to become a Babywearing Consultant at Trageschule Hamburg and in 2013 she completed her trainer’s education and founded the first Babywearing Consultancy in Australia “The Babywearing Practice”. Soon she wanted to provide Babywearing education not only for parents but also for professionals, so the first training programm in Australia was created with the help of a worldwide conjunction of Babywearing Schools and the Babywearing School Australia was born in late 2013. Since then Babywearing School Australia  has now trained almost 100 Babywearing Consultants in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. She lives in Melbourne where she works as a certified Babywearing Consultant, Kangatraining Instructor and Babywearing Educator.
