Sibling Birth Class
Having your second (or third or fourth…) baby and want to prepare your older children? The Sibling Birth Class is perfect! This class uses fun, interactive, and age appropriate information to help prepare your child for the birth of their newest sibling.

This class is a private class done in the comfort of your own home.
