Safety in the 1st Year of Life: First Aid & Infant CPR/Choking Relief
Welcome to the adventures of your baby's first year! As you prepare for childbirth and your baby's arrival, you may also have concerns about your baby's safety. Safety in the 1st Year of Life will give you the skills and information to help keep your little one safe during his or her first year.
You may be interested in this class if:
- You are an expectant parent interested in learning infant CPR, first aid, and safety skills
- You are the parent of an infant and are interested in learning infant CPR, first aid, and safety skills
- You are a babysitter or caregiver of an infant
- You want a class that is solely focused on infant safety
This class follows the guide of the American Heart Association’s Friends and Family course and covers a range of topics, including injury prevention, injury assessment, and first aid. Included are best practices from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control, Safe Kids Coalition, and the American Heart Association.
In addition, the class includes a detailed and thorough demonstration of infant CPR and choking relief techniques. After this interactive presentation, participants will practice their skills on mannequins and receive feedback from the instructor.
This is a non-certifying course geared towards expectant parents, new parents, and infant caregivers. If you are interested in a class that covers child and adult CPR as well or are interested in receiving a certification, our Pediatric Safety: Infant, Child & Adult CPR & First Aid class is a better fit.
