Would you know what to do if your little one was choking?

Would you know what to do if your little one was choking: Nikki Jurcutz from Tiny Heart's Education

There is so much knowledge available to us regarding pregnancy and babies that it can be overwhelming to sift through all the information.  Although many things can be learned along the way, there are benefits to having some basic awareness and knowledge to help reduce anxiety and overwhelm in those early years.

Today I’m joined by Nikki Jurcutz, mama of two, former paramedic and co-founder of Tiny Hearts Education, a training organisation providing essential birth and first aid education to parents across Australia.  Alongside her sister, Rach, Nikki’s work with Tiny Hearts helps empower mums and dads to face parenting without fear.

In this episode, Nikki and I discuss the benefits of baby first aid, safe sleeping and guidelines for the prevention of SIDS.  Nikki also highlights the main things to be aware of when starting solids and what to look out for with regards to allergies and rashes.

Becoming a parent can be daunting and overwhelming but equipping yourself with the right information will help you feel supported and empowered for the amazing journey ahead.
