How a Babysitter Can Help Your Family During Your Pregnancy: A Cherished Cherubs Perspective

Written by Lisa

Pregnancy is a period of anticipation, excitement, and, admittedly, a fair bit of stress for expectant families. As you navigate this journey, especially in Australia where family dynamics are diverse and often bustling, the support system you choose can significantly affect your experience.

We at Cherished Cherubs understand the multifaceted roles a babysitter can play in easing this transition. Here’s how our babysitters can be a pivotal part of your support system during pregnancy.

The Value of Extra Hands

First and foremost, pregnancy, especially in its later stages, can physically limit what you’re able to do. Tasks that were once straightforward, like picking up toys or chasing after a toddler, become more challenging. Our Cherished Cherubs babysitters can step in to help manage these daily tasks, allowing you to conserve energy and focus on your health and wellbeing.

Emotional Support and Stability for Children

Children, while excited about the arrival of a new sibling, can also feel anxious or neglected as parents’ focus necessarily shifts. A Cherished Cherubs babysitter can provide that extra attention, ensuring that your children continue to feel loved and secure. Our sitters are trained to handle such sensitive situations with the care and empathy your children need.

Flexibility and Customised Care

Every family’s needs are unique, especially during such a transformative time. We pride ourselves on offering flexible and tailored babysitting solutions that adapt to your changing needs throughout your pregnancy. Whether it’s extra help in the evenings or someone to take the kids out for adventures on the weekends, our team is here to support you.

Preparing Siblings for the New Arrival

Our babysitters can also play an educational role, helping to prepare siblings for the arrival of their new brother or sister. This preparation can include reading books about new babies, discussing what it means to be an older sibling, and even involving them in preparations like setting up the nursery. These activities help siblings feel involved and excited, rather than anxious, about the new addition.

Giving Parents the Break They Deserve

Perhaps one of the most understated benefits of having a babysitter during pregnancy is the opportunity for parents to rest. Pregnancy is demanding, and rest is paramount. Our babysitters can provide you with the peace of mind needed to take a nap, enjoy some quiet time, or go on a date night, knowing your children are in safe and caring hands.

A Continuity of Care

For families planning to use babysitting services after the baby is born, establishing a relationship with a babysitter during pregnancy can offer continuity. Children who are already familiar and comfortable with their babysitter will likely adjust more easily to the new family dynamics once the baby arrives.


At Cherished Cherubs, we understand the complexities of welcoming a new member into your family. Our mission is to alleviate some of the stresses that come with pregnancy, allowing you to focus on what truly matters. Our professional, compassionate, and experienced babysitters are more than just caregivers; they’re an extension of your support system during this beautiful yet demanding time.

If you’re anticipating the arrival of a new family member and could use the extra support, we encourage you to explore our babysitting services. Let us take care of the little things, so you can prepare for your big arrival with peace and joy. Contact Cherished Cherubs today to find out how we can support your family during this special time.
