The Survival & Early Childhood Global Resource Curriculum (GRC) contains 17 Home Visit lesson plans for the prenatal and post-birth period, divided into the three trimesters of pregnancy and the crucial 48 hours after birth. These lessons are vital for a pregnant mother or caregiver of a very recently born infant. These lessons allow those implementing the program to target the specific needs of expectant and new mothers. Topics include but are not limited to: what to expect during pregnancy, the importance of prenatal care and maternal health, understanding the birth process, how to plan for the birth, post-partum health, newborn care, breastfeeding and diapering.
Home Visit lesson plans generally contain learning objectives, a materials list and directions for preparation. Each lesson includes a brief mental and physical health check, reflection time to review the previous lesson, spiritual mentoring, learning activities, developmental activities, learning reflection time, an action plan and/or homework, and a closing prayer.
Note: The language in these lessons primarily references mothers as the caregiver. However, the content applies to any primary caregiver – father, grandmother, guardian, etc. Feel free to tweak the language to fit your context as appropriate.
