About Brooke Maree

Hello, I’m Brooke, and I’m so glad you’ve stumbled onto my website!

I'm a single mama to Elanor (8) and Axel (5) and am based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia. 

I first became a mother just one month after I turned 20! As a young mum with minimal outside influence and pressure, I found my way through motherhood my own way, by following my instincts.

I first used a stretchy wrap when my daughter was a couple of weeks old and it felt right! I was hooked and I quickly dubbed it “the magical sleepy wrap”. (She slept more in that thing than anywhere else!)

When she was six months old I realised I didn’t want to leave her for a second to go back to work or study. This is when I took the leap and started my own business in what has become one of my biggest passions: Babywearing!


Nearly 8 years later (and one extra child!) I’ve assisted thousands of parents & health professionals in classes, through private consultations, and online, in finding comfort and confidence with using a baby carrier or sling. I retail a range of brands and styles of carriers/slings and work independently with other companies to help spread the Babywearing love.

In 2020 Brooke Co-Founded the Australian Babywearing Association and in 2021 she took over as Country Leader for Kangatraining Australia, continuing in roles where she can adovcate and promote Babywearing. 

I love showing how simple it can be and my mission is to get more parents enjoying their baby carrier so that more babies get carried for longer! It’s my dream that a baby carrier/sling becomes as easy to navigate as any other skill you learn when you become a parent.

My heart will be so happy when it’s normal, easy, and accessible, for babies to have the opportunity to be held close as they so desire so that we build generations of children who feel safe, secure, and loved, and grow up thriving.

I’m not too fancy or too scientific, I’m about giving you practical solutions so we can get on with life, doing what we’re meant to do as parents (carry our young and keep them close) in a way that supports our demanding lifestyles and the needs of our baby to be loved.
