July siblings class at ALMH     Send a link to a friend

[JUNE 29, 2004]  The Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital Family Maternity Suites and the Lincoln Junior Woman's Club will have their next siblings class on July 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. The siblings classes have been designed by the club to educate and prepare young children for the arrival of a new baby into their family.

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.

ALMH's 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 to take a virtual tour of the ALMH Family Maternity Suites.
