This class helps to prepare children for their new baby brother or sister and provides helpful tips for making the adjustment easier for both siblings and parents. We will help to reassure your children that they have a special place in the family as their roles as a big brother or sister are discussed. You and your child/children will participate in activities designed to increase their knowledge of a new baby’s appearance and capabilities.
The class is geared toward children ages 2-8.
There is no cost to attend this class! Please register online now. (Each person attending should be registered separately in order for us to keep track of open spaces.)
This class has been switched to an ONLINE class and will NOT meet in person at the hospital related to the COVID-19 restrictions. Enjoy the class while sitting on your couch. If you have these items available a doll or stuffed animal that your child can practice with for the holding "baby" portion of the class and a piece of paper, crayons/markers to make a birthday card, please have that available also.
