Sibling Doula Package ($1000) Find the comfort you need during birth knowing that your older children are being safely cared for. This looks different for every family, some want siblings at the birth with a caretaker to tend specifically to their needs, some choose to wait until after birth to have siblings meet their new family member. Having a sibling doula present to focus just on your older child can help make the process of becoming a big brother or sister so much easier as well as ease your own mind.

- As a sibling doula, I work with children to make sure that becoming an older sibling, is a positive experience, a rite of passage. Parents and I build a plan of action prenatally so children are comfortable and happy to see me when labor starts. During pregnancy I work with the child to help them understand birth in an age appropriate way and get them excited for their new baby. We build a relationship together through short periods of play time building up to the birth.
- I will be on call to be with your child at any time in labor and throughout your birth. I use baby carriers and positive attachment practices to make sure children are as comfortable as possible.
- The package includes two prenatal visits and more can be added for a child with high needs or anxiety. One postpartum appointment is included in the package to bring the relationship full circle with mama and family settled at home.
