2/1/21: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time with in-person classes, virtual-interactive live classroom offerings on Zoom, and online eClass options. We are taking every precaution to ensure that the health and safety of our class participants and educators remain a top priority. New safety measures will be in place for in-person classes that include reduced class sizes, room arrangement that supports safe distancing, health screening of participants, and a requirement for everyone to wear a mask through the duration of the class. If you are currently registered for a class you will be contacted with further information. We will continue to offer the four eClasses available online if you choose not to take in-person classes: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn.

Sibling Class 2-year old

This class is offered during the last six to eight weeks of your pregnancy for Two year old siblings. The educator presents an age-appropriate description of pregnancy, explores feelings about becoming a big brother or sister and conducts a sibling-to-be tour of the mother/baby unit. Children will also see a newborn baby in the nursery. Teaching techniques include discussion, demonstration, role-playing, and video. Parent(s) or guardian(s) must attend this class with child(ren). Suggestions and resources for answering questions about new babies and tips for managing sibling rivalry will be offered. $10.00 cost is per family. Please note that child does need to be at least 24 months old to attend.

Please note: Some dates of our Sibling classes are being held via Mayo Clinic's use of the Zoom platform. Zoom classes are noted next to the dates below.
