Babies welcome!

--- My husband & I recently attended this course as we both felt it was important to know how to deal with medical emergencies for our 14mth girl. The course was very thorough and each section covers how to deal with baby/child/adult. I feel more confident in dealing with choking/burns/cpr/bleeding. Definitely recommend this course as it will just to give you more information/confidence should you ever have to deal with such an emergency.

--- I had Dee round to our flat for a private first aid course with seven other couples. We had a great afternoon, most importantly learning but in an easy to understand relaxed format with babies roaming wild and practising their own CPR techniques on the mannequins! Highly recommend that anyone does this course. Dee covers all the basics and things you may not have even considered, she really knows her stuff and leaves you feeling confident that you can handle any emergency situation.

--- My husband and I attended Dee's first aid course on the 1st November. We both found everything fantastic, Dee was so friendly and explained everything from a professional and a personal 'mum' point of view. It was so useful and reassuring to walk away feeling so much more confident about what to do in most situations. I have attended a children's first aid course 4 years ago, so this was a brilliant refresher and although we hope we never need to use most of it - we both feel Dee has given us enough to be able to help our children, and others if we ever need to! Thanks so much, and we'll be back in a year to refresh our minds again! We will spread the word to recommend this course!

- Debbie

--- I thoroughly enjoyed Dee's course, I found it really useful and loved how easy it was to absorb all the information, Dee made us feel very welcome and I think its ideal for anyone who needs first aid training, would highly recommend!
