Brothers and Sisters Class is designed especially for the younger members of the family who are about to have a new brother or sister. They will spend an evening learning about the miracle of childbirth through discussions, a video, picture books, and hands-on-experience. Correct terminology will be used and all questions answered. The class includes a "mini" tour of the Birth Care Center.
Make sure to bring along a baby picture of your child(ren) as close to newborn age as possible to share when we talk about how they have grown; you will get the picture(s) back untouched. Also, feel free to bring your camera/smartphone to the class as pictures can be taken freely throughout the class to help capture memories of the evening.
Children attending must be three years of age or older and should be accompanied by their parent(s). Please make sure the child is not ill or recently been exposed to an infectious illness.
Children should attend the class during the last month of mom's pregnancy. Class size is limited so please register early for your desired month!
