Sibling Doula Support
If you are interested in having your older child(ren) with you during your labor and delivery, but are concerned you won’t have care for them and want your partner to be able to focus on you – or if you need care for your child(ren) at home while you are at your birthing place – a sibling doula can be a wonderful investment! A sibling doula, however, is not a replacement for a birth doula. I will care for your child at your home or birthing place, whether that is at home, birthing center, or hospital. I will work with you to choose the best options for your child(ren) during your birth and help prepare them for your new arrival!
The following services are included:
• Two meetings at your home with you and your child before labor begins, 1-2 hours each
• Preparing your child for the labor, delivery, and new baby by reading books, watching videos, and doing other activities
• Two postpartum visits with you and your child once you are home with baby, 1-2 hours each
• Continuous care during for your child during your labor and delivery, day or night
• Care for your child at your home or birthing location
• Emotional support for your child during the labor and delivery
• Snack or light meal preparation for your child during the labor and delivery
My fee for sibling doula services is a sliding scale of $500-750.
