A new baby in the house can be difficult for older brothers and sisters. To help families prepare for the addition of a new member, Winneshiek Medical Center is offering a Siblings Class, led by the WMC OB Nurse Coordinator, Carol Voss, RN, BSN, and SueAnn Kinneberg, LPN. There is no charge for the class with pre-registration.

The one-evening class will be held on Thursday, October 10 from 6 – 7:30 p.m. on the lower level of Winneshiek Medical Center. The Siblings Class at Winneshiek Medical Center will focus on new baby behavior, how older siblings can help their parents, their continued importance to the family, and changes that may occur in the household when baby arrives.

“The Siblings Class will offer age-appropriate activities to help big brothers and sisters prepare for the newborn, while alleviating fears about what happens when mom goes into the hospital,” says Voss.

To register or for more information about the class call: Elly Lensch, WMC Education Coordinator, at 563-387-3131.
