A new baby is a big deal. But when you're a big brother or sister, it's sometimes hard to get excited about a baby who cries, sleeps and takes up all of mom's time.

That's why Rapides Women's and Children's Hospital offers "Sibling Class," from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, June 20, in the Cascade Room of Rapides Women's and Children's Hospital.

This class is offered to children between the ages of 3 and 10 who are expecting a little brother or sister.
"Sibling Class helps them understand where mom is when the baby is being born and how being a big brother or big sister is a very important job," said Karen Z. Hathorn, RN, MSN, CNS, Rapides Regional Medical Center director of education.

This is a free class. To register, call (318) 769-3512 or visit rapidesregional.com
