Fund free access to baby CPR training during pregnancy

Petition Details

Give mums access to free baby CPR training. Physical training should be provided for all expecting mothers, either at a routine midwife appointment or antenatal class.

Additional Information

My newborn son stopped breathing last week and turned blue and floppy within seconds. I knew how do to baby CPR as this training is given before you are discharged from a neonatal unit with a premature baby. However there are thousands of mothers and baby’s who don’t have a neonatal stay and therefore wont be taught basic baby CPR.

It was crucial in saving my sons life before the ambulance arrived!
