New Parents! Are you prepared for the most wonderful job in the world?

Our New Parent Workshop equips first-time parents with the knowledge and skills needed to prevent and treat injury and illness in newborns and young children.

Welcoming a new baby into the family is an exciting and wonderful time for grandparents, aunts, uncles, and parents. Along with the joy, first-time parents can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the huge responsibility of properly caring for their precious little one.

Three hours well spent

Taking a few hours to learn what do if their baby or child becomes ill, and how to prevent accidents and injury, can go a long way to making new parents feel more at ease.


The St. John Ambulance New Parent Workshop reassures new parents by teaching them about childhood illnesses,   accident prevention, and treatment.
