Older Siblings at Younger Siblings’ Birth

In honor of International Sibling Day I thought it would be fun to interview kids who were present for their younger sibling’s births! The resulting episode was so sweet, funny and moving. Below is a slideshow featuring photographs from the births these kids attended along with their perspective on the experience via short audio clips but be sure to listen to the whole episode to get their full responses which will have you laughing one minute and tearing up the next. It is such a sweet, sweet episode!

What it Looks Like to Be There the Moment They Became a Big Brother or Sister

The below photos represent what it really looks like to have one of your older children at your birth. It’s so powerful for these kids to see their mothers going through labor and birth and to be there when their siblings first come into the world.
