Picture Stories – What to Expect

Doctor meeting patient and parent

Going to the hospital can be a stressful experience for many children and families. We want your child’s visit to be as pleasant and relaxing as possible. To help your child prepare for his/her visit, we have created special picture stories that can teach your child what to expect. Knowing what to expect can help to reduce some of the stress that you and your child may be feeling.

You can access the picture stories by clicking on the links below. New stories are added regularly, so please check back frequently.

Stories are available as computer- and mobile-friendly webpages as well as downloadable PDFs.
