After being paused indefinitely in March 2020, in-person prenatal and postnatal group classes are returning, starting in Lethbridge this month.

The South Zone of Alberta Health Services will see a gradual return, slowly building back capacity and staggering start times.

Evening prenatal classes in Lethbridge run once a week for four weeks, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m on Monday or Thursday. Weekend classes are also an option, taking place once a month on Saturday or Sunday from 9:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Prenatal classes should be scheduled to be completed before the baby’s due date.

Postnatal classes can take place on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 1:30pm to 3:30pm, and are intended for when babies are between six weeks and three months old.

Strict safety precautions are still in place in all AHS facilities, including reduced class sizes, a screening at the entry, face masks and physical distancing.

While classes are returning in-person, online options will still be available through self-directed resources or live virtual classes.

Classes in Medicine Hat and other South Zone areas will resume later this fall.
