I attended the Baby and Child First Aid course at the weekend, being taught by Marita. I found the course to be informative and interesting, with a lot of focus on the practical, which really helped me to take everything in. With a small group, it gave us all the chance to ask questions and have a go at the practical elements, and made it a more personal experience. I hope never to have to use what I learnt but, should I need to, I am confident I will be able to put my new skills into practice.

I have attended the baby First Aid courses taught by Marita. It was very informative, and nice small group with plenty of time to ask question and practice. I feel much more confident now if i ever have to use the skills either on my own child or others. It always good to know more and that the one minute during an incident could make a huge difference.

I attended the Baby First aid course last Saturday. I thought it was really convenient to have the course run at a friend's place as we could bring the baby eith us as well. The course lasted for 3 hours and covered the essentials, which I think is really necessary for first-time parents.

My partner & I took a baby first aid course with Sarah this Sunday in Wimbledon. I would very much recommend it to all parents - and it was great that we could bring our baby along so could both do the course.
