Plan in advance to make sure siblings are taken care of when you are in hospital. If possible, get someone to stay at your house as this will be less disruptive. If your children will be staying at someone else’s house, make sure that your child is familiar with the surroundings. Always have a back-up plan in case the person cannot take care of your child. Give the following information to your birthing partner or a friend:

When labour begins, call:

Name ____________________________

Phone number _____________________

Instructions

Or:

Name ____________________________

Phone number _____________________

Instructions

Give the following details to the caregiver:

 

Activity/place Child Drop-off time Pick-up time Person responsible Phone number
School/daycare          
Lessons          
Sports events          
Doctor's appointments          
Other
