Sibling Doula Support
Don't have on-call childcare for your labor & delivery?
Welcome in a Sibling Doula!
Having been a career nanny for over a decade, I love being with older siblings as they experience the transition of becoming a sibling! Welcoming a new family member into their life is a significant event that deserves to be honored with steadfast attention and gentle care.
As a Sibling Doula I will...
I will not only provide childcare for your older child, but will be with them to process siblinghood. By reading books, playing games, setting up special spaces, and using our imaginations, I will prepare your older sibling for navigating this new family dynamic.
I will be loyally attentive to your older child as they become curious, have questions, or need to be held in their confusion. Gaining an additional sibling will result in a new paradigm for them and requires patience and empathy. I will be with your sibling one-on-one throughout the entire process, whether that's at your home birth or while you are at the hospital or birth center.
I will be on-call 24/7 from 38 weeks gestation through to labor, meaning I will organize myself to be available within one hour of being notified of labor. I provide up to 24 hours of support for your child(ren), then charge hourly for additional time.
