||Skin-to-Skin Contact Promises Broad & Long-Term Benefits
You’ve probably heard about the importance of skin-to-skin contact for babies. Maybe you heard it’s important to do right after delivery. True again. But it shouldn’t end there. Join Marie and internationally acclaimed expert, Dr. Susan Ludington, PhD, CNM. They’ll help you to understand how the initial (first hour) and ongoing skin-to-skin contact is a critical part of any baby's care whether he or she is born at or before term. You’ll be astonished to see how and why skin-to-skin contact works better than an incubator to regulate your baby’s temperature, blood sugar and sleep regulation. You’ll also see how this simple act provides an almost magical key to successfully starting and continuing breastfeeding, and how it can affect the baby’s moral development and behavior forever.
