Yup! I was already trained as a CNA but I took the infant class once becoming pregnant. :)
I was a fully trained first responder before I got pregnant, my dad also teaches the course so I’ll be doing a refresher once I have my baby 🥰
We plan on getting certified for sure!
I definitely did! Now I teach them!
If anyone is in NYC/NJ - I offer workshops with certifications🌞 beginning in January 2022
I had my CPR certification in high school (didn’t renew it so it’s not valid for years) really love having the skills and think it’s super important for everyone! Signed up a class for my hubby but it was pretty lame, plan to sign us up again for a more professional one after the baby is out.
Def recommend going for classes that let you practice physically so your body gets the memories. Just the knowledge is better than nothing but it’s not as useful as muscle memory <3
I took a class (online) with The New Mummy Company in Oakville
Me and my bf both got certified while I was pregnant for infant, paediatric and adult cpr it was included in our first aid course. Watching a video and practicing on a doll is nowhere near enough because of the depth you have to do with the compressions varies on the age of the person x
Honestly, I was certified beforehand. But I’d recommend getting certified early on while you’re more able to do the physical work involved in the class. It’s going to be harder to do that once you’re further along.
They show you a kids CPR video before leaving the hospital. In my case I do have CPR now cause of work but you don’t have to.
They do? I was never shown one
I was signed up for the course that is included with pregnancy class so an overview not certification but ended up on bed rest and unable to attend. I was recently looking into certification at local facilities and it's like $200 for basic training and more for infant and adult training. I am a sahm and literally cannot afford that and it infuriates me that it cost SO much because it was extremely important to me being a first time mom.
I did, yesterday in fact. It was scary at the beginning but very nice to have at the end.
It’s a great skill to have. I had to perform cpr on my daughter when she was about 15 months.
I work as a nurse so I've been certified and trained since college but I do ask my babysitters be trained just in case. Not a hard thing to learn and it truly does save lives!
I would suggest it for anyone, and be sure it covers infancy as well.

Yes! It's something you have to renew I believe every two years. There's a sense of security that comes with it but I still fear that I would freeze up in a scary situation 😞
I’ve worked in child care as a career and get re-certified whenever it expires. I plan to continue and urge all mommas to be certified. I am currently trying to convince my fiancé to get the training and certification for times I’m not home with LO. I get mine through American Red Cross and it’s good for 3+ years depending on the program. They have locations all over the US that offer all different types is courses. I take the CPR/First Aid and AED courses for adults, children and infants. I know a lot of hospitals offer training courses in the NICU dept. I just like ARC because it is a very rigorous course that includes training in so many other areas.
I had to get CPR certified when I worked as a paraprofessional for special needs students. I’m glad I did bc it’s wonderful to know some of the things I had to learn in the class including first aid since kids aren’t exactly the most graceful
I am looking to get this done. Just don’t know where exactly.
Yes while I was pregnant I did and I’m really glad I did when my son was 8 months old he choked on a yogurt melt fortune I knew exactly what to do and acted very fast I will never ever give him those again though
I’ve been CPR certified for a while but recently renewed and then did a Pediatrics Advanced Life Support class as well. Can never be too prepared!
After I became a mum I did. Was a brilliant thing to do highly recommend it
No but I think I should 😩 my daughters doctor said I don’t need to that we can just watch a cpr video on YouTube and that will do but I rather be certified if only I had the time 😩
How I got ?
I would love too! I am actually researching somewhere where I can get certified.
Yes the nicu resertified both me and my husband
I was a nurse before becoming a mom, so I've always had my CPR card. It's good to have it because if you do ever need it, in that moment you'll be more ready than panicked having someone from 911 explain it to you over the phone.
Yes ! Took the class when I was pregnant , and my job at the time , offered the cert after I had her !
Not yet but i want to. How to get it?
Try your local Red Cross.
Ok thank you
Already have it
I am about to. I'm also getting first aid certified.
No but I do want to!
No, but I would like to be. They did give us a crash course when our son was in the NICU.
Yes! It gives a lot of peace of mind to know you are prepared if the situation arises.
I’m certified through my job and protected by the Good Samaritan law (I believe that’s what it’s called) if I use it outside of work
Yes. Luckily my job offered CPR/First Aid Certification
Yes! Nice for peace of mind!
Former NICU nurse 🙋🏻♀️ ✅
both my self and my husband CPR certified
I was certified in order to babysit (ahem) decades ago but I need to re-up
I teach cpr I have been doing cpr since I was 15 years old... it is such a great thing to have when you have little ones.
I certify every two years
The hospital where I will be delivering offers an infant CPR class. I’ll be taking it October 20th! 😊
I’m not certified and the only training I have ever gotten was for CPR on adults, but I plan on getting certified. I’ve read and watched videos on it. But that’s completely different than actually getting trained and practicing on a dummy.
I was already certified way before I had my son. My husband also has his because of his profession.
In Nz it is mandatory after you have a baby no matter how many you have
I took a class at the hospital I was delivering at before I had my baby. It’s super helpful to know in general.
I have because my baby was in the NICU. Made me realize how much more important that was because of them.
I was already certified (I used to be a CNA/CMA) and I plan to update it soon. I've already had to use infant CPR on my daughter who became overconfident with a banana when she was 10 months old. It failed, and after a couple of attempts, I ended up having to put my finger down her throat and forced it out. I was thankful for the training as it helped me stay calm. Even though it didn't work, I still immediately knew what to do when she choked and acted. I highly recommend EVERYONE, pregnant or whatever get CPR certified! You never know if you'll need it!!
I had a doula for my 1st and 2nd pregnancies. She was a registered nurse so she came to our home for our 1st time at the rodeo and did a CPR training for us both. It was so helpful to have that additional info in case of emergency. New moms are usually nervous (I was) so being trained was a plus plus!
