One group first observes their attitude and then is given a video at the beginning of the meeting, the material is given through strength points, videos and leaflets after that every day using video via WhatsApp and observing again after 2 weeks. The results obtained are different test with Wilcoxon test obtained p-value 0.008, it means that there are differences in attitude before and after exposure to a video about early detection of growth and development of infants.
