LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Franciscan Health is offering prenatal courses online. These courses are the same that would be taught in person but cannot due to COVID-19.
The courses range from breast-feeding to infant CPR. One mother, Abbey Corbett, attended the courses both before and during the online switch.
"It was great, everyone was really friendly, there was a lot of information and it was great to meet a lot of other pregnant woman who were at my stage," Corbett said.
Parents are sent a link to an online meeting where they will join others in the course. Once online, the instructor goes over the procedures with dolls, just as they would in person, only this time over camera.
Attendees have said while not being in person is a let down, the convenience of taking the courses from home is a big plus.
The courses ard will continue through 2021. Those who wish to attend can call 765-449-5133 to register.
