The Lincoln Junior Woman's Club hosts a
siblings class as ALMH each quarter. Classes are free and parents
should call the ALMH Family Maternity Suites at (217) 732-2161, ext.
235 to register their child.
Jan Sielaff, who chairs the event, says
that children of all ages are welcome to attend with a parent or
other adult. Nurses take kids on a tour of the Family Maternity
Suites and club members provide training on child and toy safety, as
well as a craft time and refreshments.
state-of-the-art Family Maternity Suites opened in August 2001. ALMH
encourages and welcomes families to share in the wonder and
excitement of childbirth. Labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum
can all take place inside one of the private birthing suites,
eliminating the need to move the mother to another room. Visit
