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

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 looking forward to 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!

"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!"

Lorella Mintoff

"Apart from the friendly atmosphere, our tutor for the Paediatric First Aid course was very well informed and prepared, and will never let you leave unless you master all the skills. I definitely will be back for more courses!"

" 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."
