Mater Mothers’ first aid for babies
The Baby to Toddler Show is proud to offer a limited number of 90-minute infant first aid classes, designed for parents, family members and friends, presented by Mater Mothers’ in collaboration with Mater Education.
Would you know how to care for your baby in an emergency? Equip yourself with the knowledge and skills to protect your family with this hands-on, condensed 90-minute first aid course for babies and toddlers. You’ll learn CPR and other vital skills to help you confidently identify, respond to and manage common infant injuries and emergencies, and recognise when to go to hospital.
Mater Mothers’ first aid for babies is taught by our experienced paediatric and neonatal nurses, and includes information on:
• recognising an emergency situation
• resuscitation (CPR) for infants and young children
• allergic reactions
• febrile convulsions
• breathing difficulties
The course has been developed by a highly qualified and experienced team including educators who train Mater’s exceptional staff, and is endorsed by clinicians working across both Mater Mothers’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit and Mater Children’s Private Brisbane.
Mater Mothers’ first aid for babies is a baby-friendly class. If you’re attending after the birth of your baby, you’re welcome to bring them along. Bookings are essential. You can also visit the team from Mater Education at The Advice Hub to find out more.
The course costs $40 per person, and this includes a class workbook and quick reference magnet to take home.
