As mothers, this is alarming to us.  Friends, insert LifeVac.

LifeVac is a NON-INVASIVE airway clearing device that is safe for both adults and children and can even be used on oneself.

The LifeVac is a non-powered, non-invasive, single-use only airway clearance device developed for resuscitating a victim with an airway obstruction when current choking protocols have been followed without success. LifeVac has a one-way valve that does not allow any air to enter a choking victim on the downward motion. LifeVac comes fully equipped with an adult mask, a pediatric mask, and a practice mask.

We’re blessed to be partnered with this company for so many reasons, and we’re ecstatic to report that as of this morning they just saved their 119th life! 

Don’t wait and become a statistic; be prepared and protect your loved ones in a choking emergency should it ever (if and when) one will occur.  In honor of choking awareness day, please use our discount code “RL1” and order yours now from
