As a graduate student, she studied book history with a focus on Early Modern printed medical and domestic manuals that concerned pregnancy, birth, and infant care. Throughout university, Aradia worked as a childcare provider and taught contemporary babywearing in her community.

Aradia is currently querying for Evolution of Babywearing, her blog-cum-book, which explores the origins of the infant carrier, its role in shaping hominid evolution over the last four million years, and why parents and caregivers around the world continue to use them.
