Sheila Juarez knows first-hand the importance of learning infant Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation.
Years ago, as a young mother, she took a CPR class and when her daughter was a year-old, she had to use the knowledge.
“I found her under the table and she was blue,” Juarez said, recalling a memory no mother wants to re-live.
She took her choking daughter, cradling her in her hand and hit her on the back, but she was still blue. Juarez said she had to use a bit more force the second time, which did the trick. The child started to regain her pink color.
