Did you know sibling support is a service that I offer?
This is ideal if you have another child/ children at home and are unsure of what to do with them during your upcoming birth. A sibling support doula will schedule time beforehand to get to know you and your child and or children. They are then on-call for you anytime and will come to your home or meet you at the hospital if you’d rather have your little one close by.
A sibling support doula is comfortable around birth and can even help talk to your child about what’s happening in a way they can understand. We LOVE supporting families and will be available whenever labor starts and willing to do whatever makes your experience most comfortable.
Sibling support doulas can be more expensive than you might think, but they are very worth it!
-You’re paying for them to be on-call for you for weeks, which means only taking a few clients at a time and scheduling their own life events accordingly.
-They’ve promised to be available any time day or night, and often have some training that makes them extra qualified to help in this unique situation. They aren’t your typical babysitter service, and thus should be paid for their time and expertise.
The cost is often worth the Peace of Mind it brings and the worry that can be avoided as your birthing time approaches. Sibling support doulas can be hard to find, but I am here!
You will NEVER regret having an extra set of hands for both your kids AND yourself.
Sometimes you need peace and quiet with your partner, and that’s when I would take the kids for snack time or a walk around the building, etc.
Sometimes things can get intense and you need the kids entertained, no worries, relax and watch while the doula provides expert support.
Having a trained professional on-call and ready to go is worth the investment and can help you have the wonderful experience you want!
