COVID-19 and expecting your first child

April 29, 2020

Expecting a baby for the first time can be a whirlwind of emotions — so many firsts.

On top of the stress of a big life adjustment, new parents are also coping with the coronavirus pandemic. Lethbridge parents-to-be share how they have been navigating through a very difficult time.

"We can't go to a birthing class together — we have to find it online. Even shopping for maternity clothes, I'm having to do that online. All of those things that you wouldn't think about have become a bit more difficult because of what's going on," says Kristi Adams, who is 19 weeks pregnant.
