Penrose-St. Francis Classes & Events

Sibings at Birth

SIBLINGS AT BIRTH This is a private class for families who want their child(ren) to attend the birth. Class is individualized for your child(ren) ages 4 to 18. Age-appropriate discussion of female anatomy, growth and development of the baby, and labor and delivery is presented using slides and demonstration with dolls. How the child can “help,” and common fears, concerns and questions are addressed. Class is held in a birthing room (if one is available) and taught by a certified childbirth educator/nurse. The child(ren), one or both parents and the child(ren)’s support person should attend the class. The support person for children under 14 should be someone, other than the labor coach, who will be responsible for their care during the labor and birth. Classes are scheduled between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We are sorry we are unable to provide evening or weekend classes. Call Family Education, 571-3125, for further details or to schedule a class for your child(ren) and family. Cost: $35 per class (usually takes 40 to 60 minutes)
