Have a little one at home becoming a big brother or sister? We have just the class for your family. Sibling Preparation is designed for children ages 1 ½ to 5 ½ years old to attend with their parents. Children learn about how to be a great big brother or sister, basic newborn appearance, behaviors, newborn care and how to interact with the new baby with safety and fun. Children will also learn about some of the different emotions that are common when a new baby joins the family. Information is also given to parents about current resources and things to think about when adding to your family.
Throughout flu season, on the labor and delivery unit no one under the age of 18 is allowed to visit, except children of patients who have been pre-screened and vaccinated against the flu. During flu season we do not offer tours as part of the Sibling Class.
