Baby and Child First Aid
Empowering Parents to Deal with Medical Emergencies
Safe Hands First Aid understands that the thought of your child being seriously ill or involved in an accident is something we would all rather not consider. However, it is a sad truth that accidental injury is one of the biggest causes of mortality in the UK for children over the age of one. Basic First Aid really can mean the difference of survival, it can have a huge impact on the extent of someone’s recovery, the amount of pain they are in and also how long they may need to remain in hospital.
Seconds really do count, every parent, grandparent or carer, should be equipped with the knowledge and skills that could save a child’s life.
Our 2 hour ‘Baby & Child First Aid’ session covers:
- Managing an Emergency
- Baby & Child CPR
- Baby & Child Choking
- Baby & Child recovery position
- Heavy Bleeds
- Head injuries
- Allergic reactions
- Fevers & Febrile Seizures
- Other common childhood ailments
You will have the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ practical experience on our professional baby & child mannekins and you’ll be encouraged to ask questions so that you leave the session feeling like you have got the absolute most out of it.
Babies are welcome to our sessions.
