Mater Mothers' First Aid for Babies

Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, in collaboration with Mater Education, is now offering a first aid course specifically for parents with babies.
It’s something a lot of parents have asked for and is another step to continuing Mater's exceptional care into the home.
The 2.5 hour course was developed to equip parents with the knowledge, skills and confidence to care for their baby should they face an emergency. Participants learn to identify, respond to and manage common infant injuries and emergencies immediately, and when to go to hospital.
The hands-on session includes information on:

  • resuscitation (CPR) for infants and young children
  • choking
  • poisoning
  • burns
  • bleeding
  • fractures
  • allergic reactions
  • respiratory illnesses.

 It was developed by a highly qualified and experienced team including educators who train Mater’s exceptional staff, Mater Children’s Hospital emergency clinicians and is endorsed by clinicians working across both Mater Mothers’ Hospitals’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit and Mater Children’s Private Brisbane.
