Rock Your Baby Birth Services partnered with the Colorado Springs Doula Collaborative proudly offers sibling doula services to help make your birth experience as smooth and effortless as possible. Some families prefer that their older children be present and actively involved in the birth process while others need the space to focus on the very big task at hand. Many families want some kind of balance which can often be hard to navigate during the intensity of labor. No matter what amount of involvement is desired for your older children, and no matter the events and emotions that unfold, a sibling doula will drastically lighten the already incredibly heavy load of a birthing family.

When a sibling doula is present, it enables the partner be maintain total involvement in the process without having to care for their other children. Sibling doulas offer emotional support and are able to answer questions in an age appropriate way. We are accustomed to engaging in the language of infancy, toddlerhood, and adolescence; and as birth professionals, we are well-versed in the rhythms of birth – together, this allows us to be wonderful birth companions for the big brothers and sisters of the family. Sibling doulas can also serve as on-call childcare for your older children when you go into labor.

Services Include:

  • 1-2 meetings with you and your older children during your pregnancy
  • Continuous support and care for your older children during your labor, birth, and immediate postpartum
  • Encouragement and support for big brothers and sisters to participate while remaining within everyone's ultimate levels of comfort
    • If there is a time where your older child(ren) become too upset or overwhelmed, or are becoming too much of a distraction, we will take a break and move away from the birth space
  • Snacks and meal preparation
  • 1 postpartum visit to reconnect with your older children
