What parents are saying about this masterclass

Highly recommend to all parents!


I really enjoyed this well thought-out and hugely helpful course. I did it shortly before my daughter was starting to wean and it made me far more confident about baby led weaning as I knew how to handle a choking situation. Sammy covers all the important topics and gives you confidence to handle an emergency situation with your children. I'd very much recommend this for any parent.

Lighthearted, friendly, informative!


Thank you so much for this course. I have just taken part and it was brilliant. So informative and it covered a very serious subject, in a lighthearted and friendly way. I have had severe anxiety about choking, but now feel confident moving my son from purees on to baby led weaning. I already want to tell everyone I know, my parents, mother and father in law etc about my new skills! Thanks again Sammy!

How is this course different to a general first aid course?

I am so glad you asked.

This online course is devoted to making you the expert on choking. You will learn the anatomy and physiology of why choking occurs, what foods are higher risk, how to identify and managing a choking episode for babies and children, CPR and more. 

Each module has a 'Confidence Quiz' to help with knowledge retention.  You will finish the course with resources designed to help you teach those around you how to identify and manage a choking episode. All enrolled participants are welcome to join a 1 hour live Zoom session to ask Sammy any questions that they might have.

Confidence is about trusting yourself and the skills you have. This is exactly why this masterclass was created. If you would like to speak to me directly, to see if this masterclass is a good fit or you, please call 07522 312 795.

How is this course different to a weaning workshop?

It is completely different!

We will cover all things choking. 

I am a first aid trainer, mum of three young kids, and I understand the worry that parents have about choking. I have over a decade experience as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Educator, so I know how to teach people these life-saving skills.

We will not cover readiness to wean, baby led weaning vs a traditional approach, or anything nutrition related. 

We will cover choking, and we will make you the expert on this life-saving stuff.
