First Aid Classes For Expectant Mothers in Lagos
New and Expectant Mothers
A ‘new or expectant mother’ is a woman who is pregnant, has given birth within the preceding six months or is breastfeeding.
Most women are able to continue to work during their pregnancy and many women return to work soon after giving birth. Some women don’t work again once they become pregnant; they decide to stay home to look after the children and some may go back to work later.
Nobody likes to think of their child being in an emergency situation, but learning first aid will give you the confidence to be able to help should you need to. This class is for you or the baby’s carer and will guide you through exactly what you need to know.
Our First Aid classes are facilitated by a Medical Doctor of over 15years experience and provide first aid training for parents of babies under one. These interactive, confidence-building classes are held in your homes, and will provide plenty of opportunity to practise techniques and ask questions.
