Your child's safety is your UTMOST PRIORITY!

One way you can ensure this is learning the key skills to paediatric first aid.

Paediatric first aid training is incredibly important as infants and children are much more susceptible to accidents, with one in two accidents occurring in a home environment.

Common hazards for young children include:

  • Falls - one of the most common accidents experienced by children
  • Drowning - the single biggest danger to the under 5s
  • Traffic accidents, where the child is either as a passenger or a pedestrian
  • Falling off a bicycle
  • Being burnt or scalded
  • Choking and suffocation

This course is available in ENGLISH or MALTESE!

DEBBIE GATT

Debbie Gatt first became interested in First Aid during her time at the Girl Guides, and her accident-prone sister provided plenty of opportunities for Debbie to practice her skills! Debbie later went on to train and serve with the Emergency Fire and Rescue Unit, becoming a First Aid instructor and coordinator.

Now she is a First Aid instructor and First Aider with Emergency Malta, the leading private emergency ambulance company in Malta.

Debbie is passionate about helping parents learn how to recognise when their children need a First Aid intervention and how to administer it safely.

Why is it essential to deliver this course as CLASS BASED rather than online?

The MyMama team has designed this course to ensure that you not only learn the theory of what needs to be done in case of medical emergencies involving your child, but also PRACTICE the techniques and gain the CONFIDENCE that comes with practice. Some of the most important aspects of Paediatric First Aid training are related to choking and CPR which cannot be adequately taught online. Furthermore, meeting fellow parents and caregivers face to face enables conversation and sharing of personal experiences when addressing the different topics during the course - learning from each other is an added dimension to this course, which we love seeing with each group!

BOOK NOW

This course is NEITHER a general first aid knowledge course/talk, NOR an add-on to an adult first aid course...

MyMama's Paediatric First Aid course is a standalone course that you can take without having previous first aid training, and it covers the techniques from infants to adult-sized kids or family members.

It has been designed with parents and caregivers in mind with the aim of teaching you how to THINK in the case of an emergency, know what to DO, but also understand how to PREVENT common accidents. And we deliver the content in a friendly, fear-free way!

You will learn about the following topics and PRACTICE how to administer the relevant potentially life-saving techniques:

  • Infant and child resuscitation (CPR)
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Choking
  • Trauma
  • Assessment of injuries
  • Recovery position
  • Bleeds and shock management
  • Seizures
  • Anaphylaxis

Who is this course suitable for?

The course is useful to parents, older siblings (aged 15+), grandparents, extended family members and caregivers.

"My husband and I are expecting our fist child and attended MyMama's Paediatric First Aid course. It was so interesting and engaging listening to the tutor deliver the session with so much passion. We have learnt a lot and the tutor's kind words and encouragement have given us the support and courage to understand the importance of first aid and not hesitate to offer it should it be needed. It was an engaging session and we were actually surprised how time flew by. In our opinion, we have invested in a course that was worth our time and money.  Thank you for this opportunity!"

"Each topic was explained & demonstrated expertly, yet in a way that's not scary or overwhelming for us parents. We're definitely more aware of how to prevent certain situations... and feel prepared should we need to deal with an emergency!"

M.Bugeja

" I recently attended the Paediatric First Aid course organised by MyMama and I highly recommend it both to parents and parents-to-be. Debbie our instructor was very knowledgeable on the subject and the topics discussed were very interesting. The entire session was interactive with participants doing hands-on practice of the subjects that were being explained. I thank MyMama for this opportunity and I strongly encourage parents to benefit from the wealth of information that is available on the MyMama webpage."
