Porter la Vie is a non profit organization with the mission to spread the art of wearing children since 2007.
Porter la Vie is:
Janie Vachon-Robillard discovered babywearing in South America through her childhood . With the absence of babywearing resources in Quebec in the beginning of the year 2000, she improvised all by herself with her two first children how to wrap her children.
Her studies and university internships in prenatal care (BAC midwife UQTR 2003-2007) reinforced her convictions of the fundamental benefits to babywearing as much for the child than for the parents and the interest to make it more accessible to the Quebecers.
She starts to transmit the art of babywearing in response to the popular demand as of 2003 and makes quebecers discover the pleasure of wearing wraps, and eventually with babie carriers from around the world.
In 2007, she consolidates her babywearing knowledge by following the first professional training given in Quebec by the international association '' Peau a Peau'' , she then founded Porter la Vie, a non-lucrative project where all the profits are reinvested for the transmition of wearing children. In 2016 , she also followed the training of the Canadian Babywearing School offered in Quebec.
It is since 2009 that she offers her own professional training in Quebec in order to respond to the demand of prenatal instructors and the future babywearing instructors; the training that she shares and keeps improving since her beginnings with the collaboration of participants.
