Expecting moms and dads with young children are invited to participate in a Siblings Class at Cass County Health System on Tuesday, June 4th at 7 pm.
The Siblings Class is a free class that will be held quarterly at CCHS. It is geared toward children between the ages of 2 and 10 to attend with their mothers who are at or past 34 weeks of pregnancy.
“Having a new baby is a huge event for a family. Everyone focuses a lot of attention on the baby and parents, which means that we often overlook the older siblings,” said Brooke Dreager, RN. “Our goal is to recognize the older siblings and help them with this big transition. We want the Siblings Class to provide a fun night for the parents to connect with their kids while talking about practical advice and skills to help the older child adjust to a new baby in the family.”
The class includes hands-on activities like swaddling, feeding, diapering, and holding a newborn. All kids who participate will receive a special certificate and their very own teddy bear.
Reservations are required for the Sibling Class; please call the CCHS OB Department at 712-250-8862.
