"You already know that worrying is part of the parenting turf. (You'll find it listed in the job description right after "guilt.") What you may not realize until after your baby arrives, however, is just how many things there are to worry about ?- and how normal it is to drive yourself crazy by panicking about every little thing"- Ann Douglas, The Top Ten Worries of New Parents
Hi guys! I want to talk about this amazing Workshop that Andrew and I did recently! But first I want to talk about New Parent Worries and then you will see how these two topics go hand in hand.
According to Pregnancyandbaby.com, some of the top New Parent worries include:
I started to realize that the most reoccurring aspect of these worries was the possibility of Not being able to effectively help, control or respond to those dangerous situations! This was a big light bulb moment for me...and I realized that I needed to feel Powerful over these situations (as spontaneous as they are) by being Prepared for them! Do you relate or hear yourself in my words? Then I HIGHLY recommend doing a Full Spectrum Safety course for your family. In my eyes, I think that these courses and workshops are just as important or More important that our Prenatal workshops that everyone does. And after completing our workshop I actually believe it should be a must!
So what did we look for in a Workshop? A Comprehensive, hands on approach to Safety! We found a few courses that cover CPR Suffocation and Choking, but nothing that covered all of the most common threats to our wee babe! Finally, we turned to With Care who is a fellow blogger that I have gotten to know over the past year. I adore her page and all of the amazing information, knowledge and inspiration for pregnancy and parenthood she offers- plus she has the sweetest family that is an absolute joy to follow!

Would you know what to do if your child or baby stopped breathing and went blue at home?
This is the opening question to Care`s workshop, and to be honest for Me the answer was Panic. The Infant and Family CPR & Safety Workshop teaches you what to do if the unthinkable happens. It`s a 3 hour course focusing on accident prevention, family first aid, as well as infant and child CPR and relief of choking. Here is a list of the Workshop contents:
I cannot explain the relief this course brought us. I feel fully confident in my ability to respond to all of those emergencies big and small, and to me that is Priceless!
Although new parent worries are Going to happen, having the tools to respond to those unthinkable situations is so important! I feel like I have gained control over the anxieties that were once swamping my mind with scary scenarios, and my only frustration at this point is that we did not do it sooner. Life will bring it`s curve balls and sudden accidents, That is something I cannot control...but I Can control my ability to respond to those situations with proper education. Guys, I am telling you that it is so worth it! If you are looking to attend you can head to Care`s workshop page by clicking Here.
I hope you all have a safe and happy day xoxo Am
