Classes and Events
New Brother/New Sister Class
All prenatal classes, hospital tours and outpatient support groups at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, and Sharp Grossmont Hospital are canceled through May 31. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to focus on the health and safety of our patients, staff, caregivers and community.
The arrival of a new baby can bring many changes to a family and this can pose challenges for older siblings. This class will help prepare soon-to-be brothers and sisters for the arrival of the new baby. The children will have an opportunity to role-play being an older sibling, using a doll or stuffed animal.
This class is for children ages 3 1/2 to 8. At least one parent is required to attend.
During this fun class children will learn:
- What a new baby looks like
- How to safely hold their new brother or sister
- What to expect when their new brother or sister comes home
- How to communicate their feelings about the baby with family members
- About their new family routine
Please do not attend the class if you or your child is sick or might be contagious. Please contact us at 1-800-82-SHARP (1-800-827-4277), Monday through Friday, from 7 am to 7 pm if you need to reschedule.
