Mini First Aid trainer across Suffolk and mummy to toddler Esme. Having 10 years experience working in residential care, Naomi has faced many first aid scenarios. Naomi is passionate about sharing her first aid knowledge, giving parents and carers confidence in any emergency situation.
Meet Heidi, Mum to one year old Eliza. With 10 years experience in the health and fitness industry she has a sound understanding of how the body works. Heidi realised her passion for Paediatric First Aid after attending a Mini First Aid class herself, so she decided to complete her qualifications to be able to teach First Aid.
I took my 3 year old to the Early years first aid course almost as a bit of a novelty as another activity for her to do. Being only 3, I didn’t think any information would be retained. So fast forward a week later and I am astonished that she still knows what to do if someone gets a bump on the head or falls down and won’t wake up. What a brilliant course! Naomi used a giant teddy as a prop and toy telephones to show how to dial 999 etc but the way she delivered the course was fantastic! Highly recommended!
There are a gazillion things I never seem to get around to doing (fixing the broken blind in our bedroom, getting some photos printed of ‘the baby’ who is almost two but still doesn’t exist on our walls, pinning down the coffee date I’ve been promising my neglected friend via WhatsApp for at least 6 months…) BUT this morning I finally got my arse in gear and ticked off something from my ‘Really Must Do’ list by attending a First Aid class designed specifically for parents, grandparents and carers of babies and young children. It took just two hours out of my morning and covered a whole host of stuff including what to do if a child is choking, how to deal with burns/breaks/bleeding and the basics of life-saving CPR for kids.
We attended the Mini First Aid class when I was pregnant last year. Fast forward to now and my baby girl is 8months old and my training has just saved her life! My daughter began silently choking on a piece of toast and had started to turn purple, because of my training I remained as calm as can be in that situation and was able to get her in the correct position and give her some black blows and retrieve the nasty culprit. £20 I paid for that course, it was the best £20 I ever spent because my daughter's life is priceless. I know for a fact before attending the course I would have just panicked and screamed, not knowing the best course of action. Thank you so much Mini First Aid, you saved my daughter's life and for that I'm eternally grateful.
The session was interactive and enjoyable, and the information was taught in a really simple and memorable way. We feel much more confident that if we needed to do any first aid then we have a much better knowledge of what to do, which could make all the difference in those first moments after an accident or illness occurring. Definitely recommend this first aid course to anyone with babies or young children.
One afternoon, we were enjoying a day out in the sunshine and had stopped to feed our daughter of 7 months, she’s just started solid food and we’d been giving her sliced banana to chew on. On this particular day, she inhaled a small piece and began to choke. I quickly remembered Martin’s words, put her in the proper hold, bottom in the air and one forceful strike between her shoulder blades dislodged the banana and although she was shocked, she was able to breathe again and I can’t tell you how relieved we felt! It may have only been 10 seconds in which she couldn’t breathe but it was terrifying. Had I not had the training from Martin and Mini First Aid, I cannot even begin to imagine how differently the situation could have turned out. In fact, I’d go as far to say that the training I received enabled me to save our daughter’s life.
"We are so glad we have done a Mini First Aid class. We enjoyed the class, found it really useful and feel so much more prepared in the build up to having our baby.”
The Mini First Aid Class (filmed for ITVBe) was a fantastic class, both Arg and I found it a really good and informative session
It was a pleasure meeting Kate and Jacky from Mini First Aid and being taught what to do in case of an emergency. Learning CPR and what to do when a child is choking is invaluable. Obviously, I hope I never had to use the things I learned in today’s class, but horrible things happen and knowing these techniques can really make a huge difference. The class was fun and accessible given the seriousness of the topic. I would highly recommend everyone doing it.
This was an informative first aid course in the comfort of our own home. It has given us the reassurance and confidence to deal with any first aid issues our babies may have. These sessions are ideal for groups of mums, toddler groups etc... it was nice doing it with people I knew in a comfortable setting! This was a fantastic course, I would highly recommend, Thank you!
I attended a class with Naomi and would highly recommend it. The information provided was all really useful and although I hope to never use it, I feel so much better knowing that I could if I had to. I was also really impressed that it covered first aid for all - babies, children and touched on adults, as it means that it won’t just apply while my little one is little! I was a little apprehensive as I had to bring my 3 week old daughter to the class and was worried that it might be an issue if she needed feeding or cried (she did both) but the friendly atmosphere meant that I needn’t have worried at all. My mum is planning on booking a class and I’ll be recommending it to everyone - you really don’t even need to be a parent or grandparent to benefit from this class and I think everyone should have some basic training like this.
I just wanted to thank you for the trainning you provided, my boys loved it and asked if they could do it again the next week! I'm now looking into arranging monthly sessions with fire,lifeboat,police, guide dogs etc. I got loads of positive feedback, all the children learned so much, you engaged them all, made it fun but also taught skills that are so important. Thank you so much!
I cannot recommend Mini First Aid enough. Kate ran a private class for me and my 11 year old daughter in the comfort of our own home, which was perfect especially as my babies are due any day now. My daughter and I feel much more confident in knowing what to do in a range of emergency situations and I also got some extra twin tips from Kate as a fellow twin Mum! It's such an important life skill that every parent and carer should have so I would urge you to book a Mini First Aid course today.
We have seen hundreds of clients go through the Infection Control Course and heard nothing but positive feedback. They were able to do everything in their own time and now have the ability to promote their certificate/badge to all current and future customers which has helped them secure both venues and new clients. I would highly recommend anyone that is running a children's activities business to complete this course.
Fantastic private class. Informative and hands on practice is second to none. Would recommend to anyone with children for peace of mind and the confidence of what to do in those unthinkable situations. Thanks Naomi - you were brilliant!
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Zoe for the private First Aid class she led last night. It was incredibly informative and really easy to understand, even when juggling a baby and sleep deprivation!
My husband and I attended this morning with our little boy. We’ve both come away feeling confident that if we ever need to administer first aid (fingers crossed that we don’t), we’ll be able to handle whatever is thrown at us. Naomi was very friendly and very knowledgeable. It was great we were able to both go and take our little one too. Highly recommend to anyone!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, as a new first time grand parent I would highly recommend doing this very informative course. After getting to practice on the dummies....and Naomi! I now feel so much more confidant that I will know what to do should an emergency arise while my granddaughter is in my care. Thank you Naomi.
Sky are always looking for ways to better support their staff and Parents@Sky Network offers support and benefits to staff who are parents. I came across Mini First Aid through a Facebook promotion and there was a huge demand for the Infant and Child First Aid class which was shared on our internal and external social channels. The communication and organisation of the event was excellent - Sarah-Lou was professional, engaging and even injected some parent style humour! The class was interactive and educational - everyone took something away from it including much more confidence in dealing with any emergencies which could arise with their little ones. The feedback received on the back of it was amazing! It was a great success and hopefully something we can do again, and potentially roll out to other sites in the UK. Thank you Mini First Aid, you were a pleasure to deal with!
