We’ve all dreaded the day we might stand by and watch helplessly as our newly weaned infants choke on their first bit of solid food. Both myself and Louise have experienced this fear when our beautiful brand new babies were born.
Too often we hear of babies and toddlers choking on grapes, marshmallows, cheese, biltong – you name it. Assistance for a choking infant or toddler is NOT the same as for an adult and therefore is of the utmost importance to get right.
If you are a parent, or someone who often looks after babies and young children, and interested in attending a one-hour practical baby CPR & choking workshop on a Saturday morning to learn how you can help a choking infant or toddler – or even avoid choking altogether, please book online and choose a time slot using the links provided .
During the class a fully qualified and trained professional instructor will teach you the techniques involved and an opportunity will be given to all participants to try out the techniques on the dummies provided. Participation certificates will also be received by all in attendance.
This class is not only ideal for new parents and grandparents but also for older siblings and other family members who regularly babysit, as well as caregivers and nannies.
Hot soup, vetkoek, coffee and tea will also be provided on the day which will be included in the fee. You won’t need to make notes during the presentation as notes will be given after the session.
Being informed about this subject is so important as choking deaths are all too common among young children. Please share and invite your friends to sign up should they also be interested!
