First aid for babies and children

Our mission is to dispel myths, alleviate fear and empower parents or carers with lifesaving skills.
Be confident that you know what to do if your child or an infant in your care is unwell or injured.

Founded by Megan, a paediatric nurse with 15 years experience, Save A Kid is here to provide essential first aid education to parents and carers of infants and children. Working as an emergency nurse, she is in the unique position of caring for children and their families she's never met, sometimes at their sickest, on one of the worst days of their lives. Usually meeting families at a time of crisis, Save a Kid is an opportunity to reach parents or carers, and share vital, life saving information, in a more relaxed setting – hopefully before you experience injury or illness with your own children.

First aid for kids

We know parents are time poor and often tired. Our first aid sessions are designed to incorporate lifesaving skills, and provide current evidence-based information in a timely way. You’ll leave with the confidence to know what to do if your child is unwell or injured, and to make informed decisions about their healthcare and safety.

Our paediatric first aid course is conducted by experienced paediatric emergency nurses. This gives us unique insight into what parents worry about – and what they really need to know. Taking part in our first aid course also includes a pack to take home, with resources to reinforce what you have learnt on the day.

TESTIMONIALS

"Loved the way it was a simplified approach. You could have bombarded us with granular detail but it was delivered in a way that we will be able to remember (therefore more likely to be able to use)."

— Sophie, Melbourne

I found the session to be fantastic.  I was particularly pleased to learn about choking and how to tell if a baby is having trouble breathing” 

— Jessica, Bendigo

“I really enjoyed this course and would absolutely recommend this to others who care for children.  Theres so much to learn and you can always take away something that is new and relevant”
