One of the most challenging parts of adding a second child to your family is the worry and concern most families experience when thinking about who will care for their older child(ren) during mom’s labor and delivery.
Some families plan to include their older child(ren) in the birth process, while others want their older child(ren) to be separate from the process. Either way, having a solid, reliable person who understands the emotional needs of your child and who can be available at very short notice is very important to most families.
Some families are fortunate enough to have family or friends close by that they can count on to provide this for their family during this exciting time. But let’s be honest… Portland is a hub for people from all over the country, and all over the world. Not all families expecting a new addition will be able to count on a friend or family member for support.
This is why Doula Love offers a sibling support package. It provides a doula for your older kids! Doulas are trained to provide emotional support and are also available to provide that support with very short notice.
This Package Includes:
- A two-hour, in-home session during which a Doula Love affiliated doula will interact with and get to know your child(ren)
- On-call sibling support service starting at 38 weeks until the birth of your child
Rates and Fees:
- Sibling support services cost $30.00 an hour, not to exceed $900.00 per session
- There is a $150.00 fee to hold your doula’s availability

“Wendy provided us sibling support doula service when we had our third child. When we met Wendy, we right away felt comforted with her compassionate presence and knew our children would be in good hands when it came time to have our baby. Our third baby came over a month early unexpectedly early in the morning and Wendy came right away to take over at our home caring for our children. Wendy continued to help us with the transition of bringing home our baby and has been someone we’ve kept in touch with. She has such a wealth of wisdom as a mom of three herself. I would highly recommend Wendy as an expert doula provider. ”
