    This child-focused workshop will help you and your child(ren) (ages 2 ½-5 years) prepare to welcome a new baby into your family.

    In this 2 hour workshop, expectant siblings and their families will engage in a hands-on, play-based approach to pregnancy, labor, birth and the arrival of a new baby. Together, we'll ease the transition into this new role through activities that nurture your child's capacity for empathy and empowerment as a big sibling, normalize any big emotions surrounding the impending changes, and allow space for you to connect as a growing family.

    Participants in this class will:

    -explore the sights and sounds of labor and birth through developmentally appropriate books, role play, and a short video
    -discover the many ways siblings can be involved in the process before, during and after baby's arrival
    -practice reading newborn cues and newborn care through interactive, hands-on games
    -craft the start of a "big brother/sister kit," or social-emotional toolbox
    -take home a comprehensive list of resources for parents to extend learning and preparedness at home
