Skin to Skin - Guideline

Recommended Posts

Good morning 99ers,

I am in discussion with my nursing colleagues over the seemingly ad hoc approach to getting our extreme premmies out for S2S (particularly early on when ventilated/lines/temp instability etc), and whether a more formalised guideline may help (worked for feeding, hasn’t it?). Grateful for thoughts/opinions.

You are welcome. I hope you find some nice resources to develop a S2S guideline. 

Many NICUs have guidelines, it might be worth emailing some to see if it would be possible to share. Or perhaps go to the professional body. I see you are from UK, contact the Neonatal Nurses Association http://www.nna.org.uk/ 

Cheers Trish
