Nested’s Newborn & Infant Care with CPR certification is a comprehensive class that will prepare you for the moment your baby is born through the first few anxiety-provoking months. We take you on a journey from the day of discharge through your newborn’s first few months at home.

As of FEBRUARY 2023, this class includes the BLENDED (In-Person & Online) American Red Cross Pediatric CPR/Choking Prevention/First Aid/AED Certification Course! It consists of a self-paced, interactive online session to be taken in the convenience of your home, followed by an in-person, hands-on skills training session with one of Nested’s certified American Red Cross instructors. TheAmerican Red Cross online learning portion is 1-2 hours (done at your own pace at home), followed by this in-person class that along with the other course content, will include time for CPR review and hands-on practice.
- The online session must be successfully completed at least 3 days PRIOR to attending the in-person class. Please allow 2 hours for the online portion.
- During the in-person portion of the class, the instructor will show how to resuscitate using CPR and an automated external defibrillator (AED) on specialized, non-responsive infant CPR dolls as well as choking prevention strategies. Attendees will be able to practice techniques on the dolls and must demonstrate each technique successful in order to obtain the 2-year certification. NOTE: ALL breathing portions of CPR practice are conducted outside due to ongoing health & safety precautions — depending upon class size and weather permitting

Should you choose to not complete or are unable to complete the online portion of the class, you MAY still attend the “hands on” in-person portion of the class to learn & practice techniques. However, you will NOT receive the 2-year certification.
