All prenatal classes, hospital tours and outpatient support groups at Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center, Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women & Newborns, and Sharp Grossmont Hospital are canceled through the end of April. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to focus on the health and safety of our patients, staff, caregivers and community.
This class teaches basic life support techniques for infants and children up to age seven who are experiencing choking, breathing difficulties or heart problems. It is ideal for new parents, school children, grandparents, babysitters and other community members who might be in a position to help a child experiencing a life-threatening emergency.

The course uses a watch-then-practice video format and manikins for hands-on practice. There is no testing and the student learns through instructor feedback during practice sessions.
