As a new or expectant parent, your main priority will be to keep your little one safe and well. One way to feel more confident about this is to learn first aid to prepare you for anything that might happen - whether that’s knowing how to help with a bump to the head, an accidental burn or if your baby or child chokes on something.

65% of parents wish they had learnt some first aid skills before having a baby.* By choosing your  preferred way of learning first aid, you can feel confident of being able to help should you ever need to.

Learn with family and friends

Groups of up to 15 people can learn together at a time and place that suits them, whether it’s at a British Red Cross venue or a location of your choosing, such as a local community centre.

Being with people you know creates a more relaxed environment and you’ll save money too, compared with booking individually.

Kim Oakes (pictured) learned first aid in a group in a local community hall. ‘I think it is so important that all parents and family learn simple first aid,’ says Kim.

‘I felt I knew a few things before the course but being able to ask additional questions, get tips and also practise as if it were a real-life situation made me feel more confident.

The layout of the course was logical and had clear, easy steps to follow. ‘I would highly recommend learning first aid as a group to anyone who is expecting a baby or who has children.’
