THE PROCESS

Prenatal planning appointment

This in-home visit will give us the opportunity to meet and discuss your birth and expectation of care. This will give me a clear view and understanding of your children’s needs, personalities and your parenting philosophies. This prep time is important so that I can keep maintaining the normal flow of the household.  During this visit, I will meet with your children so they are familiar with my face and began to get comfortable. 

Playdate

During our play date visit, I will come to your home and spend time to get to know one another. We will do some fun activities to prepare children about labor day and when the baby comes home. Siblings will learn sounds mom may make in labor and few simple labor coping techniques so they can help mom in labor (given mom and the child are both feeling up to it at the moment). The sisters or big brothers will learn ways they can help mom while she feeds the baby. Parents can stay home for this visit or take this time to get some last-minute errands completed.

On-call dependability

I'm on call beginning 2 weeks prior to your due date.  I stay on call until your birth with the expectation that you could go up to 42 weeks gestation. Day or night I'm ready to come to support your family.

Support during your labor

 A Sibling Doula creates the space for the birthing person to be supported as well relieve the worry of your children or being fed, diapered, and cared for according to your family’s preferences. Rest assured your children’s physical and emotional needs will be supported and taken care of by a professional.

After labor Support

I will stay up to 2 hours after the birth to make sure everyone is settled in. In the event that you or your baby need more time, your children will be cared for as arrangements are made for their extended care. I will provide one follow up visit to help with questions and adjustments
