UP Babywearing Conference is a registered not-for-profit organization, that produces an annual conference event and trade show- the Up Babywearing and Parenting Conference. 

Now in its third year, UP is not only quickly becoming as an inclusive and accessible weekend for caregivers with relevant topics for parenting.

UP is organized by a group of volunteer parenting and babywearing enthusiasts, collaborating from across the country and around the world to bring a diverse range of business partners, educators, and caregivers to one location for the benefit of parenting and babywearing communities.

Our inaugural event was held in 2017, in Ottawa, Ontario, and it sparked our desire to share this unique experience with as many parents as possible, with our second event taking place in Coquitlam, British Columbia in 2018. UP is excited to return to our roots and bring our unique blend of speaking sessions and exhibits to Ottawa this summer. 

Interested in partnering with UP? We are always seeking new business partners, volunteers, and enthusiasts to join us in producing our conference events. Send us an email @ upbabywearingconference@gmail.com !
