At CHI St. Joseph Health, we understand that when your family is expecting a baby, your other children don’t know what to expect. Making big siblings feel informed and included can go a long way toward generating good will about your coming baby.
When taking our Sibling Tour, big brothers and sisters-to-be can strap on a cool free backpack full of all sorts of neat stuff, get all their questions answered in a personalized tour of our labor and delivery suites and watch a video that teaches them what to expect and do when there is a new baby in the house.
It’s all designed to make them feel informed, included and excited about the coming addition to your family—and take a load off your mind.
These tours are designed for children ages 2 - 8 and parents must accompany children.
These tours are completely free but we do ask families to register in advance.
Sibling Tours are held on Tuesdays, begin promptly at 5:00 pm in the hospital lobby and last 40-50 minutes. An RSVP is required to join the tour. Call Healthy Communities @ 979.731.1231 to RSVP.
