Becoming a big sibling is a big deal! This free class for children 4-7 years of age introduces them to our Family Centered Maternity Care Unit before the big day to get comfortable with the events surrounding their mother's hospital stay and their new baby's arrival. Age-appropriate information about safety, infant care and what to expect is provided. Please bring a stuffed animal or doll with each child to practice with in class.

Registration is required. We recommend that you schedule this class within the last two months before your due date.

Please register EACH child with their name and age. For questions or to cancel your registration please call 1-800-SENTARA (1-800-736-8272(1-800-736-8272).
