This class is recommended for parents, grandparents, and anyone caring for an infant. The primary emphasis of the class is on injury prevention, and also includes learning how and when to administer CPR to an infant. You will learn common choking hazards and demonstrate how to rescue an infant who has an airway obstruction. We discuss ways to baby-proof your home, reduce the risk of SIDS, and consider how safety challenges change as babies develop and explore. This class is taught by a Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator and an American Heart Association Certified CPR Instructor, but does not result in CPR certification.
NOTE: The Saturday, August 18th class has been rescheduled for December 8!
