For the kids already in our lives!
What do we do with our children when we have to be away for several days for a birth?
Both parents have to leave, sometimes in the middle of the night, without notice! Someone has to come and help the other children through this transition in the best possible way.
If you are planning a home birth, the other children should definitely have a resource person to spend time with while their parents welcome the new baby. The sounds, excitement and intensity of the moment are experienced by our youngest children and we need to be with them too!
To book a free information meeting
Whether you’re planning a home birth, a birthing center or a hospital delivery: your children deserve to be accompanied during this important transition in their lives.
We come to meet the child during a prenatal meeting, just for them. They will be able to play with the caregiver, ask questions and become familiar with her. When she arrives like a light breeze, they will know and trust her already.
Things the sibling support worker can do during your delivery:
Make sure that the children’s routine continues normally
Giving a bath
Putting them to bed
Take them to or pick them up from daycare/school (need car benches or parents’ car)
Play, laugh and relax the atmosphere
Explain, normalize and accompany during childbirth
