CPR and First Aid Class by CPR Kids

Wouldn’t you like to know what to do if your baby is sick or injured? CPR Kids hosts Baby and Child CPR and First Aid classes at Sydney Southwest Private Hospital.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions these classes are being held at a nearby community venue.

The 3-hour class is taught by practising paediatric nurses. It’ll give you lots of hands-on practice with baby and child manikins, leaving you with enormous confidence should you ever find yourself in an emergency.

In addition to the CPR Kids classes available, all SSWP families will be offered a complimentary one hour virtual class during their stay, covering safe sleeping, overheating and breathing problems in babies.
