Note : this course is a lifesaver course,  over two and a half hours, covering the essentials you need and the real practical advice that will help you at work.  If you are looking for a longer course please ask me for recommendations of other first aid providers.




“Many thanks to Ella Rachamim from Be Ready To Parent for her very useful and informative talk yesterday on ‘How to keep your baby out of A & E’ – we talked about fevers, choking, recognizing signs of meningitis. Very good information to have on hand with a young baby.”  Elise, Director of Nurturing Mums.
