Learn to relax

"Loved the CPR class!  I'm so glad to know what to do if my baby stops breathing or worse.  Sure, I'll probably forget some small details, but at least I won't be standing by helplessly, waiting for the 911 dispatcher to get someone who does know to me.  I feel confident I can save my child's life (or anyone else's) if I should ever be presented with such a situation."
