Private in-home classes
Get the info you need
ABC offers private in-home classes for families that want a class on their time schedule, have special needs, are on bedrest, or prefer an out-of-classroom setting. In addition to providing all the same information offered in group classes, these classes can be customized to your needs.
We bring all the educational tools, videos etc. necessary to make it a hands on class in your home (as well as using whatever items you have already assembled for baby). Feel free to have available any slings, pouches, packs, swaddling blankets or cloth diapers that you would like to try out. We have a large selection to try, but are also happy to help you with what you have been given or purchased.
If you deliver your baby before the class date, we can have class with your baby (even better for demos) although the class is primarily designed for pregnant couples. You will be able to cover more prenatally then after baby arrives (due to the massive hormonal shift after birth) but afterward it will be more specified to your baby's unique needs. You also have the option of using your class time for doula or lactation service if baby has made an early arrival.

Group class for Twins and More?
For families expecting multiples, Kimberly offers a class through Providence Health System in Portland called “TWINS AND MORE; Newborn Care and Feeding.” Classes are offered once a quarter and registration is done through the Providence website. This is not a childbirth class but specifically for preparing for babies. If possible, try to take your class before 30 weeks gestation as bed rest happens all too frequently to our families expecting more than one. Private classes for families with multiples are also offered (see above), and work well for families on bed rest at home or we can even bring a class to you in the hospital.
