“Family Centered Childbirth” has traditionally come to mean that the mother giving birth and the father, or coach, will be fully present when the new being emerges. What about the child waiting at home? Both the value of maternal–child bonding and early skin-to-skin contact between parents and infant have become well known and widely accepted. It is time now to consider the possibilities for sibling bonding and for family bonding. Just as the parents' opportunity for a joyous and positive birth experience can most often be enhanced by prior exposure to appropriate specialized information and training, so can siblings benefit by access to thorough preparation. This article makes specific recommendations as to the kinds of communications found by the author to be most helpful in preparing future sisters and brothers who may be present at the births of their siblings. Suggestions for teaching aids are given, and a bibliography is included.
