Could you give CPR to your baby? Would you know what to do if your child swallows a toxic substance? What if your child was choking on a sweet?
It’s good to know some baby first aid. Knowing what to do when a child is in distress or there is an emergency is especially important.
This class is developed for expectant and new parents (plus grandparents!), with the most up-to-date and evidence-based information, so you’re prepared for life’s emergencies.
Our Baby First Aid class differs from your typical first aid class by providing easy-to-understand information, practical advice and tips, and is not heavily led by lots of theory and technical language.
