--- Best course ever, well organised, sharing experience and knowledge with possibilities to practice under guidance (partly on different dummies) for the emergency. It gives yourself and your partner much more knowledge and confidence for worst case scenarios. This is so important, especially with young children! Well done! Highly recommended!!!
