Expecting? Sibling Class to help your little ones with the new addition on 8/26!
Is your family expecting a new addition? Here’s a great class to help your older children embrace the special occasion of becoming a big brother or sister!
Big brothers and sisters will tour the Family birth Center, watch an age-appropriate video, and learn to diaper their doll or teddy bear. Siblings will also learn what to expect during mom and baby’s hospital stay, what newborn babies look like and act like, and how they can help mom and dad with the new baby. Parents are expected to attend with their child but do not need to register separately.
