Episode 78: Staying Afloat With Cristine Aiwohi
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tragedy can strike quickly ― all it takes is a matter of seconds for an infant to accidentally drown if left unattended.
This week on ‘Muthaship’ we’re joined by a certified infant swim instructor and super-mom to eight children named Cristine Aiwohi.
A close call involving the near-drowning of her infant son prompted Cristine to become a certified Infant Swimming Resource instructor. She’s now been teaching at her Kahala home for more than eight years and says parents are often shocked to see how quickly babies are capable of learning survival skills in the pool.
Cristine explains the swimming techniques and best ways to practice water safety ― and why parents shouldn’t rely on certain child floatation devices.
