ICBW History

On May 10th, 2006, Jun-Nicole Matsushita and Jennifer Hamner organized a Yahoo group called Iowa City Babywearers. That fall, through the TBW forums, they connected with Aradia Wyndham, inviting her to join their first official in-person meeting, on the first Saturday of January 2007 at a little coffee shop called Fair Grounds in Iowa City.

In 2008 Jun-Nicole left to focus on Bamboo Birth and in 2012, Jennifer Hamner relocated. Due to medical disability, Aradia had to limit her role in the group and in 2016 Kelsey Sandeno stepped up as the head of the Iowa City Babywearers.
