This class is for brothers and sisters-to-be ages 3 to 5 and their parents or adult caregivers. Join us for this unique event featuring fun activities that will prepare your child for the arrival of a new baby. The morning includes information sharing and activities around a "campfire" and a HIKE to the newborn nursery in Family Birthing Center.
Children will learn about becoming an older sibling and how to interact with a new baby. Please bring a baby doll or teddy bear (if available) and a baby picture of the child attending the class ... and feel free to bring your camera, too!
A folder with information on how to help a child cope with a new baby will be given to the parents attending the class. We encourage those attending the class to share the information learned with others who care for the sibling-to-be, such as grandparents, other family members and babysitters.
The last half hour of class is for siblings who will be attending the birth. A support person (not the labor coach) must attend this class and be present at the birth for each child.
Taught by St. Cloud Hospital Family Birthing Center nurses.
