Baby at the Table: a baby foodie class for the first year
Thinking about introducing solids? Not sure when or where to start? Purées or Baby Led Weaning?
The first year is a fine time to establish healthy eating habits, nurture positive relationships with food, and start family traditions.
Are they getting enough? We will discuss current best practices and recommendations around baby nutrition (here and around the world).
How do I know they are ready? Special focus on babies’ physiology as they prepare to take in solids.
What to do if a baby chokes? You will leave this class with knowledge, tips and confidence to feed and care for your family - even to help with digestion!
Baby is eating solids and you want to connect with others, diversify recipes, or create mealtime routines?
You will receive quick recipes and ideas that pack a nutritional punch without having to make separate meals for you and your growing baby.
$60 (CAD) for the four-week class
Refund Policy: When cancelling a prenatal class after it has been booked there is a $25 (CAD) administration fee. If the cancellation occurs less than 14 days before the class there is a 50% cancellation fee. If it is less than 7 days there is no refund.

People who took our online class during COVID-19 had this to say:
Given the continued need to physically distance, the size of our room rentals and the evolving state of our global pandemic, OCEA will continue to offer all classes online throughout 2022.
We dearly want to support the health of expectant families.
We really appreciated Julia's approach. She was objective, knowledgable and funny! I appreciated her non-judgemental but also no-nonsense attitude very much:)
Erin was amazing and I would highly recommend her class. We found it incredibly valuable and she was just so lovely!
Erin was absolutely amazing! The way she teaches is so engaging and funny and the two full days spent together over Zoom flew by. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and her approach was very open, kind, and non-judgmental.
The Bringing Home Baby course offered by OCEA was worth every penny. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed with the educator’s level of knowledge and experience. The class covers a lot of material but somehow flies by! 10/10 would recommend!
This course will help you answer questions you didn't even know you had - both for people who are pregnant and their partners!
We both LOVED Julia's approach to teaching. She provided us with so much useful information and supported all areas of pregnancy. It was nice that she explained the pro's and con's of each topic without making one seem better than another or making us feel like we made a bad choice going the route we've chosen.
Erin was fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable and is able to offer good recommendations without pushing her opinion on you. She was very friendly, has made herself accessible to help should we have questions or need help assessing our car seat setup, etc. We could not ask for a better educator!
Julie was very kind, attentive and informative. We found the course information credible and were comforted by the fact that she has midwifery training. We are strongly considering taking the "Bringing Baby Home" course as well. Thank you for adapting the course material.
We had a great 6 week online Prenatal class with Julia! My husband and I really enjoyed the facilitation of the class and topics/information presented and discussed. It was very helpful and informative. We also really appreciated Julia's down-to-earth nature and very realistic views and presentation of the topics. Julia was very detailed but kept it light and realistic with no sugar coating, which is just what we needed! - thank you!!
Easy going, could speak up and ask questions without feeling judged.
Lilly was amazing. She approached sensitive conversations (sex, positions, comfort measures, anatomy) with grace and took the awkwardness of the conversation away.
Excellent experience, good speed, well communicated. She made everyone feel very comfortable, able to contribute and take something away. She is a knowledgeable trainer who kept the training interesting and stimulating. Loved the ice cube exercise!
