Children learn about what to expect with the arrival of a new baby brother or sister, including common emotions, infant appearance and infant behavior. Children will practice holding and swaddling a doll. Our hospital will become a camping/hiking area of exploration; telling stories, hiking through the hospital and other activities that help children become comfortable with the idea of having a new baby. This class is designed for children age range 5-11 but children under 5 are welcome to attend with a parent.
