I’m excited to share information regarding an upcoming Facebook livestream next Tuesday, July 28th at 8 am. This streaming event is a coordinated effort between the FIMR team and KU Health System, centering around COVID-19 and pregnancy. Healthcare workers, clients, and members of the community will be able to interact with KU staff and FIMR members, get answers to their questions, and hear the most up-to-date information available from vetted experts on the specific impacts and risks of COVID-19 during pregnancy. The hosts will also be answering many commonly asked questions that have been gathered beforehand, making this a nice mix of information and interaction. ... See MoreSee Less
Although, we are seeing some progress towards the phasing out of the county recommendations for the pandemic, we feel at this time it is best if we continue to hold off this month from resuming in-person classes.
Pregnant mothers are to be considered high risk when resuming our "in-person" service delivery and so we want to make sure as we go forward this is priority. Unless for some reason COVID precautions do not progress forward towards phasing out for Saline County, we will plan to have in-person classes in July with recommended screening and protection guidance from the local and state level.
Tricia and Melissa will be reaching out to those of you who have signed up to attend sessions 3 and 6 this month with more information.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to myself, Tricia, or Melissa and we will be glad to help anyway we can. ... See MoreSee Less

After much consideration for the safety of our program participants, due to COVID -19 precautions and recommendations at the local, state, and national levels of government officials, we have made the decision to CANCEL March and April classes of our Becoming a Mom prenatal education group. For those of you who have registered for these classes, the Maternal Child Health staff will be reaching out to you regarding your program status.
We will continue to closely monitor this situation as we make attendance decisions on a month by month basis. We are sorry for the inconvenience however, we must do our part to help keep our community healthy. ... See MoreSee Less
