Readiness & Action
I can’t think of anything more terrifying than finding oneself in a position to have to do CPR on the small, fragile body of an infant. This is a fear most parents are so put off by that they actually ignore it’s possibility. Too many people are in the mindset that “it won’t happen to me”. It breaks my heart when I meet these people in class, because they want to be ready “the next time something happens”.
The fact that you’re reading this right now says a lot of about who you are. Being ready for an emergency doesn’t mean it’s going to happen, and it certainly doesn’t increase the likelihood one one. If anything, those who are ready are less likely to need what they know because they tend to have fewer emergencies. Being ready helps you recognize potential dangers and avoid them. If you think you’re ready, keep in mind… We don’t know what we don’t know.
Godforbid something terrible should happen and you’re there, our aim to have you ready to take action to make significant changes toward the likelihood of a successful outcome. CPR & First-Aid are both depreciable and negotiable skills. If you’re not doing it regularly, the skills depreciate (we hope you’re not doing it regularly!). If the times comes when you do have to perform, you don’t need to stress or worry about what you can’t recall or might have forgotten. We teach that taking action is the most valuable thing you can do. Mistakes are okay; not doing anything for fear of a mistake isn’t.
Infant CPR class format:
Preliminary Topics – Infant Baselines, Calling 911, Emergency vs. Non-emergency, home prep, and more.
Infant CPR – Recognizing when, how, how long, and even where to do it!
First-Aid – Focusing on the most common or life threatening emergencies impacting newborns and infants.
Final Topics – Less common emergencies & final hands-on practice and Q&A.
Learn in the comfort of your home
Our goal is to provide critically important, potentially life-saving information to you, in an easy to understand, honest and relateable way. In-home classes help facilitate that by keeping you as comfortable as possible, and what’s more comfortable than home?
Some folks like a simple, to the point class, and others may invite family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and babysitters for a group event. Feel free to turn it into a party – food and drinks are welcome, and potluck classes are even more fun.
And yes, our classes are fun. We find students learn better and engage more intimately with the material when having fun, so we keep our classes lite, humorous, and of course educational.
An Investment in Outcomes
Many people avoid classes like this because infant emergencies can be a terrifying topic. The desire to bury your head in the sand, and to “see and hear no evil” can be very strong. Our training is light-hearted, fun, and focused on preparing you, to provide the best chance for a positive and successful outcome. This class is an investment in safety and preparedness because you never know…
