  • 5 star review  I attended this course a few months ago and found it very interesting. I learned a lot and was even able to bring my 5 month old along. Today my daughter ended up choking on some food and it surpised me at how easily I was able to stay calm pick her up and do what I was taught. The food was out in seconds and she was a littlw shook up but okay. I dont even want to think about what would have happened if I did not part take in this class. I always thought Iwas supposed to just tap their backs, thankfully I was taught the proper way. So again thankyou, tonight you helped me save my daughter. ♡

  • 5 star review  Holly did an awesome job teaching CPR and safety at the BuyBuyBaby in Langley. She was professional, yet friendly, and very thorough despite the class only being the 2 hour session. My husband and I walked away with a wealth of new knowledge and now feel comfortable in case of an emergency with young children and infants. Well worth the money.

  • 5 star review  My husband and I took the course this past week at Buy Buy Baby in Langley. Holly was very personable and professional and covered a lot of relevant information in the 2 hours. I found her very knowledgable, often citing current research and standards while also drawing on her own experience as a mom. I had re-taken my WorkSafe BC OFA Level 1 last year but wanted something more focused on infant care as we are expecting our first soon. I'm really glad we took this course. I found the explanations really resonated for me and the practicality was appreciated. Holly went over and above, we received an email info package before the course so I didn't feel pressure to take notes and remember everything. I would definitely recommend taking this course!

  • 5 star review  I took Holly’s 2 hour infant/toddler CPR course this past week and brought my 6 month old son with me. Holly was an amazing instructor that went over repetition and personal stories which helped to make the information memorable. I feel confident that I could help an adult or child who was in need of CPR or choking. Many different scenarios were brought up in the course as well as other safety aspects including prevention of poisoning, burns, baby sleep, car seat safety which I’m thankful to have learnt!

  • positive review  Highly recommend for anyone without formal first aid training. Holly demonstrates a passion for safety and teaching. She was engaging and delivered the course material quickly and clearly. I left with the ability and confidence to handle an emergency situation; or better yet, to hopefully prevent one in the first place.

  • positive review  As a first time grandma I am so glad I went. Very informative and not just about infant first aid. I left feeling more confident in being able to assist with CPR and what to do with adults/babies choking. Everyone should start with this course.
