Be prepared for emergencies by familiarising yourself with first aid procedures and keeping a list of emergency numbers in your mobile or by the phone.
If a baby is unconscious, check her mouth for airway blockages – for example, tongue, food, vomit or blood. If there’s a blockage, use your little finger to clear it. Place baby on her back to open her airway.
Check for breathing. Listen for the sound of the breath, look for movements of the chest or feel for the breath on your cheek.
