I recently got put in charge of my church’s monthly women’s evening meeting. So now I get to plan the get-togethers where our husbands think we’re meeting to learn spiritual stuff when really we’re catching up on gossip and eating junk. Pretty sweet gig, lemme tell ya.
This week we put on a little class on dealing with first aid emergencies. I prepared a packet that includes information on CPR, choking, cuts, burns and what to do in case you have to give birth in an emergency situation (i.e. not a hospital or your choice of birthplace :). This packet would be perfect inside an evacuation kit to be used in a real life or death emergency or simply stuck in your first aid kit or medicine cabinet.
Adult CPR (the CPR and choking links are to the CPR Dude website which is where I got my information. Just print off a screen shot of each page!)
I’m such a huge fan of all women being prepared to give birth in any situation; information is power! Now, if you ever find yourself speeding to the hospital with contractions right on top of each other and think you just might not make it, you’ll be the picture of calm and rationale, right??
