Mini First Aid offers a range of classes across the UK for all the family; parents, grandparents, carers and for children as young as three years old, training them in basic and life-saving first aid.
Surrey mum Helen is based in Epsom and has two children, Izzie and Matthew. In her 29 years as a flight manager, with a leading long haul airline, she has been faced with many first aid situations, and knows how to deal with them under pressure, not to mention the several incidents she has had bringing up her own two, from broken arms to gaping wounds! She believes that all carers of children should have the knowledge of basic first aid and be competent to deal with a situation, should it arise.
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
A really friendly and informative session covering all the first aid issues for your little ones! I got so much from this and feel much more prepared (just in case, but hopefully never). Thank you!
The trainer came to my house to complete the Mini 1st Aid course with myself and 5 others. She was lovely and made the session really interesting and importantly very informative. Would highly recommend to anyone – we certainly feel more prepared for when our baby arrives in November. Thanks Mini First Aid!
Really enjoyed the Otley class today. Really felt as though I needed some basic training so I would know what to do should the worst happen and really feel as though I gained everything I was wanting from the class. It was a really good atmosphere and I would definitely recommend a Mini First Aid class to any person who is in contact with babies/children.
