Steamboat Briefs: Free YVMC class for siblings-to-be today
February 13, 2010
Yampa Valley Medical Center's Family Birth Place staff is adding a new sibling class to its Childbirth Education class offerings. The new class is free and will be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Family Birth Place on YVMC's campus.
The class is available to children ages 2 and older and will answer questions for the soon-to-be big brother or sister such as: What do babies eat? Why do babies cry? How do I hold the baby? Parents and children will learn what kind of feelings they will experience when the baby comes home. Families also will receive a tour of YVMC's new Family Birth Place.
The class is taught by YVMC Registered Nurses. Families will meet in the new family waiting room in the Family Birth Place.
Children need to bring a stuffed animal or doll. Call 871-2416 to register.
