Infant CPR and Safety for Parents and Families

Are you a new or expecting parent wanting to learn how to respond if your newborn baby or child experiences a cardiac, respiratory, choking, or other medical emergency?  We’ve got you covered!  This class is perfect for anyone who will be around infants and young children less than 1 year old, including babysitters and family members.

 

Our Infant CPR for Parents class is a non-certification course with a focus on newborn babies and infants that covers CPR, first aid, and more. The instructor will assess your family and environment, and then tailor the training to you, so that you learn exactly what is needed from a prevention, safety, and emergency response perspective.

 

Since most pediatric death is caused by preventable accidents and breathing problems, the class addresses safety and prevention measures that can be taken to avoid such incidents. We also cover what do if an emergency happens, including who to call, where to go, and what you can do while you’re waiting for paramedics. The instructor will address any questions you have along the way.  We’re here to ensure you leave the course feeling confident and ready to act quickly to perform lifesaving measures in case of an infant emergency.  You’ll also take away safety tips and knowledge to help make your environment safer for your new baby or child, thereby preventing incidents altogether.  A handy reference sheet is provided.

 

The following topics are covered:

  • Recognizing and understanding the signs and symptoms of a medical emergency in an infant or toddler
  • Conducting a medical assessment
  • When and who to call for help
  • CPR for infants and toddlers
  • Choking, allergic reactions, seizures
  • First aid basics
  • Injury prevention
  • Safety tips

 

This class is offered as an open-enrollment, in-person class in our classroom, as well as either an in-person class at your location or a virtual class (online via Zoom) for private individuals and groups.
