Baby Caravan offers a selection of private classes that take place in the comfort of your own home. These classes are perfect for expecting families who need a class scheduled outside of the traditional group class offerings, for those who prefer the privacy of their own home, or for families who would love the 1:1 attention a private class provides.
Newborn Care Class
3 HOUR CLASS, IN YOUR HOME
Welcoming a newborn baby into your family is always a time of adjustment, even if it’s not your first child. The Newborn Care class is designed to give parents skills and resources before their baby is born, in order to establish the smoothest transition possible.
4 HOUR CLASS, IN YOUR HOME
Rooted in the belief that childbirth is a normal, physiological experience, this 4-hour intensive (one 4-hour or two, 2-hour sessions) will prepare the pregnant mother and her partner for labor, birth and the immediate postpartum period. These sessions are catered to your needs and what you would like to learn about most.
Pain Coping Strategies & Labor support
2 HOURS, IN YOUR HOME
Birth partners will learn hands-on comfort techniques with emphasis placed on optimal positions to facilitate normal labor progress. By identifying how we intuitively cope with pain and discomfort in our everyday lives and encouraging the pregnant mother to follow her instincts, we set the stage to have a safer and more empowering birth.
PREPARING TO BREASTFEED
1.5 HOURS, IN YOUR HOME
In this class, we explore the physiology of breastfeeding and what to expect in the first hours, days and weeks postpartum. We address common questions and concerns; preventing pain and discomfort by ensuring baby is positioned and latched well, how to know baby is getting enough, and basic postnatal nutritional needs.
