Big Kids and Babies Class Nov. 17

August 22, 2011

Leanne Miller, program coordinator, is pleased to announce A Big Kids and Babies class on Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 5 p.m. at Community Hospital. This free class provides information to siblings about new babies and explores what it will be like to have a new brother or sister.

The class will teach children how to hold a baby, and cover basic baby care safety. Children will be given a tour of the birthing room and nursery, and shown where Mom's room will be after the baby is born. In addition, they are shown a film, given handouts and will have their picture taken to put on the baby's bassinet.

"This class helps children overcome their fear of seeing Mom in the hospital after the baby is born," said Miller. "Since they have already been here, they will know what to expect."

The class is offered on a regular basis four times per year. "If possible, we recommend children take the class right before Mom is due, because the information is fresher in the child's mind," she said. Parents are invited to attend the class with their children. Pre-registration is suggested by calling Community Hospital at 308-344-2650. The next class will be held in January 2012.
