Sibling Tour

Are you expecting another baby? Let us help you prepare your child/children for the arrival of their new baby brother or sister. You and your child/children will take a personal tour of the Family Birthplace, 3 South Post-Partum Unit, and view a newborn baby in the Nursery. This is a great opportunity to ask questions in order to prevent any fears or anxiety your child/children may have related to your stay in the hospital. At the conclusion of the tour, siblings will receive a certificate and a coloring book about becoming a "big brother" or "big sister".

Fee: FREE

Call: 773-990-7680 to schedule a Sibling Tour.

Dates and times are flexible to meet your family's needs.
