Fast forward six months, and the national organisation Wonderwoman Children will on Saturday April 8 offer a Family First Aid course to Port Macquarie-Hastings residents.
For Kyrie, the course came about because of her lack of knowledge.
“We welcomed our first child to our family last year but one particular day she was struggling and I realised that I did not have the skills to revive her,” she said.
“As a new mum I recognised the need for better information on what to do.
“My husband and I – like every parent – would be devastated if something ever happened to our children and we didn’t know how to help them from a lack of education.
“So I contacted Wonderwoman Children, and they will be here for a practical, family-focused course.”
Kyrie said the course was built around practical, everyday situations and would be delivered in a two hour time frame.
“The course will cover CPR, choking, allergies and what to do if there is a reaction, seizures and convulsions, poisons, tips on safe proofing your home and temperature management.
“I believe the course would suit parents and grandparents.
“We are firm believer’s that knowledge is power, and we wanted to empower ourselves to save our child’s life.”
