Mater Mothers' First Aid For Babies
Learn some of the life-saving baby first aid and CPR techniques from the Mater Mothers’ first aid for babies’ course, offered in collaboration with Mater Education. Baby first aid and CPR is something you hope you never have to use, but the knowledge is invaluable for all parents and grandparents.
A first aid educator will help you understand how to respond to an emergency using an easy to remember approach and how to identify when to go to the hospital. The talk will also cover basic CPR techniques from how to position your hands, to the strength and frequency of compressions required.
