First Aid & CPR for Parents$250
Certified First Aid Trainer
Be Prepared for Emergencies and Common Ailments
No parent wants to be in the situation where they are unprepared to help their baby or child during an emergency. And yet, sadly, research from the British Red Cross has shown that 3 out of 4 parents in the UK would not be able to save their baby if they were choking.* Learning to prevent a common risk, such as choking, is much simpler than you might think. In fact, learning how to prevent, assess and treat a variety of first aid and common ailments encountered by infants and young children can by done in our 3 hour First Aid and CPR class for Parents.
Taught in a friendly, relaxed and sociable manner, our trained Midwife and Certified First Aid Trainer will cover the basics of both First Aid and CPR. Our First Aid portion has several topics and covers all the basics to care for your infant and/or young child. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, our CPR and Choking portion of the class is an interactive experience where you and your partner will practice responding to these emergencies.
Beloved Bumps’ First Aid & CPR class is not a certification course, but you will learn the skills needed so you are confident and competent. If you are interested in a First Aid certification, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

What’s included in the class:
Can I bring my baby to class?
Absolutely! Please be advised that there is one flight of stairs at our teaching centre. However, there will be someone at the bottom of the stairs to gladly help you up with your pram.
How long does the first aid training take?
Approximately 3 hours.
We will start with basic First Aid, take a 15-20 min break, and then resume with CPR, use of AED and choking.
Can I participate if I’m heavily pregnant?
Absolutely! We will always advise that you work within your comfort levels, but we can adapt the positions of the CPR manikins, so you don’t have to kneel on the floor. You also don’t have to complete all the interactive skills if it’s too uncomfortable.
Is the class a Certified First Aid Class?
The class does not make you CPR Certified, but the content is very thorough with a focus on assessed practical First Aid skills.
If you are interested in a certified qualification, you do have the option to convert the class to a certificate with additional online training and an additional fee.
How many students in the class?
We like to keep the class size small to maximise student/teacher ratio, depending on where the class is conducted there are usually 6-8 couples.
What should I wear to attend the class?
It is advisable to wear loose fitting and comfortable clothing. We do a lot of practical work (getting up and down from the floor and putting each other into the side lying recovery position) so shorts or trousers would probably be the best option.
