A special class to prepare youngsters ages 4 to 6 for the arrival of a sibling. Siblings will be encouraged to talk about what babies are like and how it feels to be a big brother or sister. This class will include a child-oriented tour of the birthing center. We ask that a parent attend class with their child or children. Children may bring a picture of themselves as babies and a stuffed animal/doll. When registering, please just register your child.
