Handling Medical Emergencies At Home with Shan Tripp: Medical Knowledge Every Mama Needs

As mothers, we are often the first line of defense when our loved ones face medical emergencies. In those critical moments, every second counts, & our ability to handle these situations with confidence becomes essential. Are we equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to save a life in those crucial minutes before professional help arrives? How prepared are we...really?

Let me introduce you to a beacon of hope & inspiration for mamas everywhere, Shan Tripp! Shannon is a mom to five beautiful children & was an ER pediatric nurse for 10 years. Being an ER nurse & mother gave Shan a unique perspective on how delicate the moments when your child is sick or hurt truly are. Shan wanted to share her passion with other mamas & created a course just for you!

mastering medical emergencies for moms

Imagine the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can act swiftly & decisively when faced with a sick or hurt child. The fear & helplessness that so often accompany these situations can be replaced with calmness & clarity. With Shan Tripp's expertise, every mama can tap into their hidden potential & become a true force to be reckoned with in these moments. Mastering Medical Emergencies for Moms teaches you everything you need to know with educational modules including videos, audio downloads, & PDF guides.

In this course, Shan covers the following topics:

  • Fevers If you have children, you know that pit in your stomach feeling when your child spikes a fever. But are they a bad thing? Not necessarily. You will learn more about what fevers are doing within the child's body & debunk a lot of myths.

  • Respiratory Problems Congestion, coughing, etc can be worrisome, but most symptoms of a respiratory virus can be safely monitored at home. Learn the signs of breathing difficulty breathing & when to take your child to the hospital.

  • Earaches Dreaded earaches. Personally, earaches were the hardest on my mama's heart, we went through a spell of them. Usually, earaches are a secondary symptom of another problem, learning how to understand why this is happening and when you need medical treatment is important.

  • Vomiting There are multiple reasons why your child could be vomiting. There are simple reasons & mild illness, but there are also less common medical emergencies. Shan will help you learn the difference & when it is time for medical care. (Note: regardless you'll also still probably catch it in your hand before it hits the carpet.)

  • Headaches Learn the difference between your children's common headaches & when they can be a concern for a more serious illness.

  • Head Injury The toddler phase seems to be a magnet for head injuries. They are so active, learning to walk, run, jump, & explore their surroundings. It doesn't matter how careful you are or how baby-proof your house is, you can't prevent them from every fall. There are a lot of myths about head injuries, but Shan will help you know when you need to worry.

  • Abdominal Pain Learn the difference between stomach pain due to a virus, bacteria, constipation, anxiety, food, or more serious issues such as appendicitis or reproductive problems. The combination of the location & your understanding can help you identify the potential problem at home.

  • Seizures These can be really scary to witness as a mother, in this section you will learn how to help your child if this happens & when to seek medical attention.

  • Allergic Reactions 1 in 13 children in the US have a food allergy. It is important to recognize the signs & tell the difference between a mild or severe reaction.

  • Broken Bones This is a tricky one to navigate. It can be difficult to know if a bone is broken.

  • Burns I remember when my son was 2, his grandpa had him throwing sticks into the fire pit. I said it was a bad idea, but they were having fun, he did end up touching the fire pit & getting a minor burn. I felt so bad & frantically googled what to do! In this course, Shan helps you learn the different types of burns & understanding each type will help you know how to help your child.

  • Ingestions Babies & toddlers love putting everything into their mouths, especially things you don't want them to have! There is a great risk of your child swallowing a foreign object or poison.

  • Choking This is the leading cause of death in young children, 1 child every 5 days dies from choking. It was & still is one of my biggest concerns as a mother. You simply don't have time to wait for help to arrive, you need to know what to do & how to do it calmly.

  • CPR A crisis can happen anytime, anywhere. It is important that you are confident to perform CPR if your child or someone else's child needs it.

As you can see, Shan offers a very comprehensive course that covers a variety of topics which are the most common for children to end up at the ER. She also gives you a bunch of bonuses that I know you will love!

reasons I recommend this course

Shan Tripp's course is not just a training program, it is a call for all mothers to reclaim their maternal power & take control of their family's well-being. One thing I truly love about this course is the way she speaks to you with all of the belief & encouragement that you can do this. What sets this course & Shan apart is its emphasis on empowerment, she instills us mamas with the unshakable belief that we can save our loved one's lives. No longer will we feel helpless & dependent on others during emergencies; instead, we will be educated & ready to make sure our loved ones receive the prompt care they need. Shan also has a great balance between holistic & modern medicine, which I really appreciate.
