3-year-old girl in bath with mother during sister's birth

3-year-old girl in bath with mother during sister

When the contractions start, many women find it nice to sit in a warm bath to get rid of the worst of the pain. Yoga teacher Tiff DeLancey also thought it would be a great idea to have her 3-year-old daughter bathe with her during the contractions in order to get a better bond with her almost-born sister.

As she tries to breathe away the contractions, Tiff is supported by her husband Topher and her 3-year-old daughter Nora. Topher whispering encouraging words in her ear, while their daughter distracts her with a cheerful splash.

'Sacred' bond
At one point Nora is allowed to take a bath with her mother. According to the 30-year-old yoga teacher, this is the way to cultivate a 'sacred' bond between Nora and her almost-born sister.

In the video, made by a friend, you can see how Nora witnessed the birth of her sister Violet.

Would you have your child with you at their sibling's birth?
