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 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 is determined to bring you the courses, expert advice and support you need as a parent in the most convenient and easily-accessible way possible.
In the case of Paediatric First Aid training however, we’re approaching things differently. Online First Aid courses cannot meet the requirements of all the essential physical First Aid techniques that should be learned, which is why we have planned this course as a class based one. Some of the most important aspects of Paediatric First Aid training are related to choking and CPR which cannot be adequately taught online.
The HSE in the UK does not allow or recognize Paediatric First Aid training that has been delivered exclusively online as an element of practice when it comes to CPR and other topics has to be done in person.BOOK NOW
This is NOT a general first aid knowledge course/talk.
You will learn about the following topics and PRACTICE how to administer the relevant potentially life-saving techniques:

"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!"
" 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."
