Alert

6/4/2020: Mayo Clinic’s Perinatal Education Program is still here for you providing education and support during this unprecedented time. After temporarily cancelling in-person classes due to COVID-19, we are now able to slowly transition back to the classroom with some offerings. We will continue to offer the four eClasses available online: Understanding Birth, Understanding Breastfeeding, Understanding Infant and Child Safety, and Understanding Your Newborn. 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.

Sibling Class 3-6 year olds

This class is offered during the last six to eight weeks of your pregnancy for siblings between the ages of three and six years. 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.

All registered participants will receive a confirmation email within one hour after registering (be sure to check your e-mail junk folder if you don't see the e-mail in your inbox). Please contact us immediately (phone: 507/266-7473 or email: perinataleducation@mayo.edu) if you do not receive an email.
