Hey Mum, This Is How You Do It – Herald Sun

Herald Sun Alex Pendlebury CPR Lab Chadstone

In a bid to bridge the gap and strengthen community resilience, St John Ambulance (VIC) has partnered with Chadstone and will be providing free CPR lessons to the public over a ten day period, commencing Monday 12th March 2018.

The appeal is led by Alex Pendlebury; mother, health coach and wife to Collingwood Captain Scott Pendlebury.

As a new mother, Alex knows all too well the importance of knowing First Aid and how the need for CPR can arise within a blink of an eye.

“Becoming a Mum really opened my eyes to the significance of knowing CPR, if something was to happen to Jax and I was the only one around, I need to be confident in my skills and abilities to respond.”

“There are so many precautions you take as a parent and First Aid and CPR training is one that every parent should make,” she said.
