sibling + Parent Support
my role before, during, and after birth can shift as your family continues to grow.
included within the sibling doula package:
a one-hour visit prenatally with the parent(s) to establish priorities as a family, a plan for the big day(s), and what role you would like me to take on in this time.
a three-hour visit prenatally with your big kid(s), usually in the form of a hot date night! during this time, I start to establish a relationship with your older one(s) and share age-appropriate information + children’s books around birth and sibling adjustment.
phone + email support as needed to exchange information and resources for the whole family
on-call care for your child(ren), so your partner can attend to you. most hospitals, birth centers, and home-birth midwives require a designated adult to attend to older children during labor + birth. I can facilitate your child’s attendance in your birthing time or stay with your older kiddo(s) at home and keep a consistent routine going for their day.
a postpartum visit in your home to reflect on this transition for your family, set up for success around sibling adjustment, and provide any parenting resources you might need.

I can provide a receipt for reimbursement. once I receive your deposit, I will send you an online contract to review + sign. then you'll be booked! additionally, you are invited to join our Modern Parent Village classes for an additional fee.
postpartum + parenting support
as a licensed parent + family educator I am happy to meet with you and your partner to discuss any questions, concerns, or challenges around development, feeding, sleep, postpartum mental health, co-parenting, sibling adjustment, behavior, and/or finding a healthy balance in the thick of it all. together, we find an approach that aligns with your family’s values.
