E64. Essential choking and first aid skills with Sammy Davies
Being a parent is a responsibility like no other, it is to have your heart walking around outside your body and your natural parental instincts are to protect your little one from any harm. So, have you considered ensuring you have the essential choking and first aid skills to keep your little one safe. Choking is one of those things we all hope we never have to deal with, but the reality is it does happen to some babies and children and therefore equipping yourself with the skills to deal with it could quite literally save your child’s life.
Todays guest is Sammy Davies, who has been empowering parents by teaching them life- saving skills for the past five years. Before having children herself, she worked in a bustling, high acuity hospital in Melbourne, Australia as a Registered Nurse. After completing her Masters in Nursing she realised she had a second passion- teaching. Becoming a Nurse Educator allowed her to share her skills, and teach student nurses, nurses and doctors at the frontline.
Soon after becoming a parent herself (and making the move to the UK), she realised that her loved ones were not equipped with the skills that they needed to care for her children in case of a medical emergency. Sharing these life- saving skills with the people around her became her focus, and she went on to start her own businesses teaching parents friendly first aid. Over the years she has helped hundreds of parents and grandparents to know what to do if an accident did occur to their little ones.
Sammy offers Baby & Child First Aid sessions, and has developed an online course devoted to all things choking, follow Sammy on Instagram @happyheartsfirstaid and check out her life-saving courses : www.happyheartsfirstaid.com
