A private sibling class is offered to families with children over two years of age. This class is to help the littlest family members prepare for the birth of a new baby.

Each class is scheduled on an individual basis and is presented in the Women and Infants Health Care Unit. Your child/children will have the opportunity to see where mom will be and what a newborn looks like.

Using a doll, they learn ways to help when the new baby comes home. A video and book are often used and a snack is provided. Please call the unit, 207-505-4140, to schedule a time that is convenient for you and your family.
