On Sunday, May 20, 2018 Alex Andrade, founder of Teach It Mamas on Instagram, an inclusive motherhood community and support group, hosted her first community event for us mamas and it was one that would bring so much value to our daily lives: Adult & Child CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and AED (automated external defibrillator) / Standard First-Aid Training!

The private group training, organized by Alex, met Sunday at 8:00 AM at the His Grace CPR & First-Aid Training (His Grace) located on 13112 Hadley Street, Unit 103, Whittier, CA.

Mamas were met with a cute black canvas swag bag, customized with #TeachItMamas embroidered on the front and filled with goodies, including a composition notebook and pen to take notes during the training!

And some yummy breakfast snacks and drinks to share during their attentive and supporting conversations between them before the training began and on break.

How many of you can say you are, or have been, certified in CPR, AED, and First-Aid Training?

I now can, thanks to Alex and His Grace. It’s something I have had on my to-do list for many years, especially after having my daughter two years ago, but just never got around to do it.

I’m sure it had a lot to do with knowing that my husband has always kept his CPR certification current during the past fourteen years!

The best part, I not only signed myself up, but my mamá, too! It was such a special bonding experience for both us.

In my Hispanic culture abuelitas and abuelitos bless us with care taking for their grandchildren, but we seldom arm ourselves with training above personal experience that could save our children’s lives and even our own.

Please take the steps I did and sign-up with your parent(s) (or your current babysitter) for a CPR and First-Aid Training as soon as possible!

We had a great experience with Jose of His Grace. He was professional, knowledgeable, and very accommodating with providing enough pauses during his instruction to allow me to translate from English to Spanish for my momma.

You may contact His Grace CPR & First-Aid Training by phone at (562) 519-1595 or by email at hisgracepr@yahoo.com to register for your training and receive your Emergency Care & Safety Institute (ECSI) certificate and wallet card.

And in the spirit of Teach It Mamas: Teach, Learn, Connect, Empower.

Love,

P.S. Here’s a sneak peek inside the goodie bags, just in case you were curious!

  1. Such an important class!! I feel all parents shoiuld be CPR and first aid certified. My husband and I were both certified through past jobs but the moment I got pregnant, we went out and got our certifications updated. So helpful and important!

    1. I couldn’t agree more! All parents should CPR and first-aid certified during the first trimester. Life is less hectic during this time. 🙂

    1. Thank you! 🙂 As moms, we have intuitive skills and talents that will forever be used to save our children ✨ And taking courses and attending trainings will very much enhance our motherly super-knowledge! 😉
