CPR is one skill we should ALL have in our repertoire. A class takes 2 hours and can literally give you the super powers to save lives.

Join us on June 7 for our next evening CPR class or August 13 for a Saturday morning class.

Do you already know what to do when Baby is choking? If you don't, watch the new animated video below on how to save a choking baby.

The video, titled "The Chokeables," was created by St. John Ambulance, a first-aid training organization with branches around the world, and is being shared on social media. Every parent can benefit from watching the 40-second video, which features objects that babies commonly choke on (such as a pen cap, a marble, a broken crayon, and a nut). The objects are voiced by three British actors, including Sir John Hurt, who appeared as Mr. Ollivander, the wand-maker, in the Harry Potter movie series.

A princess figurine demonstrates the following steps to save a choking baby:

  1. Lay your baby face-down on your thigh. Give him up to 5 back blows.

  2. If that doesn't work, turn your baby over and give him up to 5 chest thrusts until the airway is clear.

  3. If the chest thrusts don't work either, call an ambulance immediately, and start CPR.
