Mater Mothers' First Aid for Babies
Mater Mothers’ Hospitals, in collaboration with Mater Education, is proud to offer a first aid course designed specifically for parents with babies. The 2.5 hour course will 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 baby injuries and emergencies immediately and know when it’s time to go to hospital.

It has been endorsed by clinicians working across both Mater Mothers’ Hospitals’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit and Mater Children’s Private Brisbane.
