A sibling doula provides physical and emotional care for your older child(ren) during your labour and delivery, whether they will be attending the birth or not.
Having a sibling doula allows your older child(ren) to be involved in the birth process at a level that both you and the child(ren) are comfortable with.
As your sibling doula I will...
Help prepare your child(ren) for the labour process, birth and their new sibling
Meet with your older child(ren) twice before the birth
Help them understand what to expect while you labour and deliver
Show them age-appropriate pictures and books
Be available on-call for you from 37 weeks
This will give you peace of mind, as you know your older child(ren) will be cared for whenever you go into labour, even in the middle of the night
Provide continuous care for your older child(ren) during your labour and birth
Explain to them what is happening during the birth process
Care for all of your older child(ren)'s needs
- If your older child(ren) attend the birth, my focus will be entirely on them. I will stay by their side and explain what is happening to them, at their level of understanding. If they are uncomfortable at any time, I will leave the room with them.
