Birth is an exciting time for your entire family; but it can often be a challenging period for your older children. When it’s time to welcome your new baby, sibling doula support offers unlimited, expert care and emotional reassurance for your older children during birth (either in your home or at your birth location). This support includes invitations to our Community Prenatal meetings, as well as a private, in-home meeting with your sibling doula team to become better acquainted with your family’s schedule and needs and a two-hour “date night” visit where your sibling doulas provide the childcare, to give your children a chance to get to know them better and put them at ease.
When the time comes, you’ll have qualified and competent on-call care for your children during your labor and birth. As time allows, your sibling doula will provide household organization support such as meal preparation and tidying, laundry, and general assistance to ensure your older children have a positive memory of the day their younger sibling is born. Most importantly, you’ll have peace of mind so that you’re better able to focus on the important work of giving birth.
Sibling support is offered at $1100.
