Doing some learning!

Well hello

Today I wanted to share with you what I did on Monday evening. 

I attend a mums group on a Monday evening for a couple of hours. We talk about our weeks, problems, fun things and just get to have a general chit chat with friends - no husbands and no children! We also have the lovely added extra of a lady that comes in to give us reflexology and Indian Head Massages for free :) It is a great atmosphere and I always come out feeling really good.

So this week, the organisers of the group arranged for a lady to come in and teach us some basic Paediatric First Aid. A couple of us had mentioned that we would love to learn some, and the ladies didn't disappoint! 

We were greeted by a lady called Danielle who owns ABC Life Support. Here is a little blurb from their website about who they are and what they do...

'ABC Life Support LTD is a Social Enterprise organisation which provides exclusively designed paediatric first aid training for parents, carers and those people working in a number of child orientated professions.
ABC Life Support pledges to provide you with courses that are specific to your needs. They are affordable, personable and you can expect a truly unique experience.'

We had a 2 hour paediatric first aid session, and I found it soooo helpful! We learnt about the basics of first aid for children. We worked from scenarios to start with, imagining that we were at the scene. but the child wasn't ours. That was really good as it made you think about what you would do. I was pleased that I could make a plan in my head, and it was pretty much right! The rest of the evening went so quickly! But Danielle made it so enjoyable, and I came away with all this knowledge!

Please check out their website and check out what they have on offer. You can also follow Danielle on Twitter @abclifesupport.
