Baby and Infant First Aid Course [Approx 2 hrs]
Attending a first aid course is not always the first thing on a parent’s mind but this course will help you to think quickly, remain calm and be confident if you have an emergency situation. Our relaxed 2 hour baby and infant first aid course is for parents-to-be, new parents and families and is run by experienced children’s nurses.
Our course will help you to prepare for bringing your baby home and feeling confident in an emergency if your baby is not responding to you, if they start choking or stop breathing. The course is also to recognise pending illness in young and older infants. Who better to teach you than experienced healthcare professionals who are skilled at listening to your concerns and being able to talk them through with you.
We are experienced nurses with many years of caring for children of all ages including premature babies and babies who have had challenging births. We run small classes of no more than 8 people and although we supply well behaved manikins, your well behaved little ones can come as well! We are buggy friendly and have easy access on our ground floor.
We can arrange for a gift voucher to be sent to a friend, colleague or family member for a two hour class – just contact us and we will organise that for you.
We can also arrange for you and your family to have a session all on your own.
The course includes a free first aid book and a warm welcome to come back for a free practice of your new skills – everyone needs an encouraging hand to get it right.
The course covers the following topics:
- Feeling confident in emergency situations
- Basic life support for babies and young children
- How to deal with choking in a newborn baby and young child
- Recognising a pending serious illness such as sepsis or meningitis
“As first time parents, my partner and I wanted to be prepared for all eventualities as much as we could be! We searched for baby first aid courses and found Jon at My Own Mentor and booked onto a 2 hour course. We are so glad we did! The atmosphere was relaxed, we took our 12 day old with us, we learnt so much, and it has made us feel more confident with our new baby. Jon answered all our questions and encouraged us to question anything we didn’t quite understand. If you’re looking for a baby first aid course, definitely book with My Own Mentor”
