Sibling Doula — The Bump
3rd Trimester

Sibling Doula

Anyone ever use a sibling doula? My mom was supposed to come, but the more I think about it, the more stressed it's making me. I'm not sure if her coming would be better or if having a bonus stranger would be better. I messaged about 20 doulas in my area to see if any of them offer this kind of service.

Re: Sibling Doula

  • What exactly is a sibling doula? As opposed to just a regular doula?
  • We are using a sibling doula this pregnancy as we have a 5 year old and 3 year old who will need care during labor and delivery. The grandparents are pretty unreliable in our family and this felt like the least anxiety-inducing option. It was definitely challenging to find someone who provides this service but after contacting dozens of doulas we found a couple options. I'm hoping it works out, having someone who can talk to our older two about what's going on as well as someone who can be available last minute seems like it will be helpful.
