Carl attended the Baby First Aid class in Tower Hamlets, London. He said:
"Being a nervous new parent who has never done a Baby First Aid course before, this made me feel more confident, calmer and more assertive. I would recommend this course as you learn more than I expected. I will be asking my partner to book on the course!"
