The Family Birthplace at Stephens Memorial Hospital is always a hit with siblings-to-be.  At the latest class, big sister to be, Marie West learned how to help parents with easy chores, talk about her feelings about the upcoming birth, safe sharing and making her own space. 

Upcoming Sibling Preparation Class for big brothers and sisters-to-be will be held the following dates in 2009:  January 10, March 14, May 9, July 11, September 12, and November 14th.  The class runs from 9:30  am - 11:00 am and are located in the Board Room at the hospital.

Carol Welsh, RN, Perinatal Education Coordinator for The Family Birthplace is the facilitator of the class, which focuses on helping kids learn how to become a big brother or sister through role playing.
