Great River Medical Center’s Big Brother and Big Sister class helps children develop realistic expectations about their new baby brother or baby sister and helps reduce the anxiety about being separated from their mothers. Children ages 2 through 10 will learn how an additional child will change their families and how they can help with this adjustment. The free class includes:

  • A tour of the Obstetrics Unit
  • Dressing up in hospital gowns, masks and caps
  • Story time about having a baby
  • Role playing for children
