Rumford Hospital Provides Sibling Classes to Help Youngsters Welcome New Family Members!

We offer a free Sibling Class for youngsters who will soon be welcoming an addition to the family. The class, which is held at Rumford Hospital, includes a DVD and a discussion with children about what it is like to have a new baby in the house and what to expect with a new baby. We encourage children to ask questions and talk about their feelings and concerns. We also show children the birthing rooms and give them a tour of the hospital. As a final activity, we help them make birthday cards as a way of welcoming their new sibling. It’s a free, educational, informal and fun event.
