Mini First Aid Trainer for Leicestershire, Rugby & Kettering. Susan worked as an NHS Physiotherapist in an acute hospital setting before having her 4 children. She has also trained as an NCT Breastfeeding counsellor and provides both antenatal and postnatal support and information to local mums. Since a choking incident with her son Susan became aware of the lack of first aid courses available where you could take your baby or toddler along with you and decided to do something about it. She is really excited to be running mini first aid courses in family friendly venues where little ones are welcome to come along and is well aware of the importance of everyone involved in looking after children knowing what to do in an emergency situation.
With 15 years’ experience of working as a registered Paediatric Nurse, and being mum to Harry, Carla knows only too well that you just don’t know what emergencies could be around the corner. As well as having experience in School nursing, Carla’s career also included teaching parents and carers basic life support training. This is where Carla realised her love and passion for teaching First Aid and raising awareness to help families deal with emergencies.
Susan came to my house to deliver the mini first aid training to me and five friends. She was very friendly and immediately had a great rapport with us all, putting us at ease. During the two hours, Susan delivered first class training, demonstrating excellent knowledge and answering any questions we had. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a first aid course suitable for babies, toddlers and young children.
I attended this class last week and would definitely recommend it to all parents and carers. Extremely helpful information and I feel I would now be much calmer in an emergency by knowing what to do.
The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
Had a great and informative course yesterday, thank you very much! Definitely recommend.’
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.
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.
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
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.
