Are you looking for an Online Prenatal Childbirth Class that you can participate in from the comfort of your own home? There have been many changes over the past few months due to COVID-19. One of those changes has been the increased use of technology. We are fortunate to be living in a time when staying connected is a bit easier, even if it from a distance and over a screen.
Following the announcement of the pandemic, Bean Family Wellness quickly adapted to fully digitize Prenatal Classes, Specialty Classes, and meetings with families. As of June 25th, 2020, Bean Family Wellness was able to re-open the option for in-person group prenatal and specialty classes for families who prefer in-person education. However, virtual participation continues to be available to all families who prefer online.
Virtual Prenatal Childbirth Classes and Virtual Specialty Prenatal Classes like the Newborn & Baby Care 101 Classes or Breastfeeding 101 Class (plus others) are LIVE, instructor-led, and available online to families in Winnipeg, Rural Manitoba, and Canada-wide. You can choose to participate in a Mixed Virtual class (some participants online, some in-person), or a Purely Virtual class (all participants online).
For group classes, families can participate LIVE from the comfort of their own home or cottage. Families receive a digital resource folder, supplementary class materials, and instruction to prepare them for participating online. Couples are able to ask questions LIVE, participate in group/couple/independent activities with the rest of class, and view the instructor, powerpoint slides, and videos LIVE.
For private classes, families receive the same options but with 1:1 instructor privately with their instructor.
In these unprecedented times, it is understandable that every family has a different comfort level and preference. Not 100% sure about virtual classes but curious about participating in an in-person prenatal class in Winnipeg? In-person group classes have been adapted to ensure physical distancing requirements are maintained, COVID-19 screening is completed for all participants and there are no shared materials during class. Private in-person classes are also available within Winnipeg, Manitoba and 20-minutes from the Winnipeg city perimeter highway. Bean Family Wellness also offers a 2-part private prenatal childbirth class (part 1 online and part 2 in-person).
