Mini First Aid Trainer for Devon and a busy mum of 3 young boys. Working as cabin crew for 13 years meant being First Aid trained to the highest standard, Liz could deal with anything from choking, childbirth to cardiac arrest.
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.
Liz Watt came to my home for the 2 hour session. A very professional and informative course which included my 10 year old son, who also found the course fun and educational, he felt confident that he would be able to respond in an emergency. A few days after the course my daughter burnt her hand on the oven. If I hadn’t attended the course I would not have known what to do for the best. When we went to hospital I was told that I had done everything correctly. That is all down to the wonderful course liz Watt offers at mini first aid. Any advice I could give to another parent would be to attend mini first aid to be prepared for accidents like mine.
Liz came to my house today to lead a first aid session for a group of first time mums. Liz was very professional and organised and explained everything to us in detail. Despite the subject matter being very serious the class was light hearted with lots of chatting and passing around of babies! I certainly feel much more confident to deal with any emergencies that may arise in the future. Thanks Liz – I will definitely be recommending you to other mums!
Liz ran a fantastic class today! Very informative and educational. I left feeling a lot more confident that I can put the skills she taught to use if ever required! It was great that I could bring my 14 week old baby and welcomed to breastfeed him. I’d highly recommend these classes!
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.
With a 16 week old baby, I have been worried about what I would do should anything happen. What if my baby choked when I started weaning him or how would I perform CPR on such a small body if required? I know there is plenty of info on the Internet but seeing a live demonstration and being able to practice what we learnt under Liz’s watchful eye definitely made me feel more confident about what I needed to do in an emergency. The course was nicely paced and Liz was warm and welcoming with a friendly and levelled approach. With years of experience giving first aid in a highly stressful environment, as well as being a mum herself, Liz filled me with confidence whilst putting me at ease. She was happy for people to learn at their own pace and be as involved in the demonstrations as they wanted to be. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone with young children.
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.
