Article on Immediate Kangaroo Mother Care & Survival of Low Birth Weight Infants

Vicky Payne

Recommended Posts

Check out this paper which includes two of our speakers in our upcoming webinar on immediate kangaroo care for low birth weight infants.  This might be an interesting pre-read for those of you attending the webinar on the 8th December! In fact, just an interesting read even if you are not attending! 

The concept of "birthday cuddles" immediately after birth (before transfer to a neonatal unit) is something being initiated in my local unit for our preterm babies.....And has been championed in other UK neonatal units.

What about in your units?! Do you provide immediate skin to skin?
