We know one of the greatest challenges you face when welcoming your littlest star to the family is childcare. With family and close friends spread throughout the country from your years of service and dedication to our country, you struggle with arrangements for your older children while you’re in labor and during birth. As military spouses, we get it! We’ve been there and share in this stress, so it was imperative that we find a solution.
Introducing…Stars and Stripes Doulas Sibling Support!
You will have the peace of mind of meeting your team of two doulas that have been background checked, CPR certified, and are military-affiliated to care for your children in the comfort of your home. We will come to your home for a free consultation to ensure we are a good fit then schedule a 30 minute planning session at your home, a local park, or other place your kids love at your mutual convenience. During the planning session we will meet the children and review personalized assessment that includes names, ages, allergies, medical concerns that we should be aware of, likes/dislikes, and special tips to help us bond during our time together. We will begin our on-call period for your family as soon as you sign the contract so you can have peace of mind that when you need to head to the hospital or birth center, your doula will be there to support your family.
- Little Star Package: This package contains up to twelve hours of sibling support and is perfect for families that have support lined up but want the peace of mind of immediate, on-call, professional support. This support allows you to get to the hospital or birth center while we care for your children until a family member or friend can get off work or drive or fly into town.
- Shining Star Package: This package contains up to twenty-four hours of sibling support and is perfect for families that have support coming in from a little farther away and/or plan a short hospital stay and recovery. This is also ideal if your partner will be supporting you during labor and immediately postpartum but plans to come home and stay with the older children following this period.
- Super Star Package: This package contains up to forty-eight hours of sibling support and is perfect for families without local support and/or families planning a cesarean birth. This support allows you to focus on your birth and recovery with your partner while your children are cared for during the first two days of recovery. This package is also great for women birthing alone due to deployment or single parenthood so that even if you are home within twenty-four hours, you will still have an extra set of hands.
Additional support can be purchased on an hourly basis. Discounts available for labor and sibling support combinations.
We look forward to supporting your family during this beautiful time.
