Meet the Leaders: Heidi Donnelly

Heidi Donnelly is an Idaho transplant, having moved here in 2009 with her family from Washington state. She soon discovered that Idahoans wear their babies just like Washingtonians and felt right at home nearly immediately. 
Soon after her first child was born, Heidi discovered babywearing, but she could not figure out how to make it work.  Only after her second child when she discovered mei tais, pouches and wraps did she realize that she was simply a ring sling ding-a-ling, and babywearing quickly became a passion.  Since then she has mastered the ring sling and uses all types of carriers with comfort and ease. 
She lives in Ashton with her husband, three girls, one boy, one dog, several cats, one horse and a flock of chickens.  You can find her many days cooking, sewing and baking up a storm and wasting away on facebook while ignoring her laundry and other housework.
Heidi is the Ashton Idaho leader and Rexburg Idaho co-leader and is the resident wrapping queen of our Leaders.  She is a certified Volunteer Babywearing Educator through Babywearing International. She was one of the main organizers of the 2010 International Babywearing Conference held in Rigby Idaho and is a well respected babywearing expert. Meet her anytime at an Ashton or Rexburg meeting.
