Sibling Doula Support

Birth Happens. As amazing as it is to bring a new sibling into the world, the process may bring about many questions. Many parents ask, should I bring my children to the birth? If I do, who will watch them if things are too intense? Are they allowed to be at the hospital? What will they do? For parents  that decide not to bring siblings to the birth, who will be able to drop what they are doing in order to watch them?

A Sibling Doula can be the solution for your family. Many families having a new baby are without trusted family members living locally or even a babysitter who is willing to be “on call” for an extended time while you have your new baby. As a sibling doula, I am available to care for older brothers and sisters while their parents are focused on bringing the new baby into the world.
Whether planning for a home, birth center, or hospital birth, it is much easier for everyone to meet the needs of your older children with one person being solely responsible for them. I will come to your home to care for your older children where they are most comfortable. 
Sibling Doula Support Provides:
  • A two-hour “get-to-know-you visit” prior to the birth when I spend time with your children so as to become a familiar face. Parents can stay home for this visit or take this time to get some last-minute errands completed.

  • On-call availability starting at sign-up. 

  • Up to 24 hours of continuous care on The Big Day. Any additional hours are billed at a discounted postpartum doula rate of $35 per hour.

  • A $300 deposit is required upon hiring. This locks you in for the 2 weeks before and after estimated due date.
