The study of Babywearing in other cultures

Two scientific studies examine the affects of babywearing and how it may influence the occurrence of Hip Dysplasia in a culture or region of the world.

 

In this publication the authors explore if the lack of DDH in the sub-Saharan African population has anything to do with the prevalence of back-carrying by the indigenous population.

“Back-carrying Infants to Prevent Developmental Hip Dysplasia and its Sequelae: Is a New Public Health Initiative Needed?”

In this groundbreaking study, published in 1981, the authors explore the reasons behind the low occurrence of hip dysplasia in the Southern Chinese population.
