Kangaroo Babies: A Different Way of Mothering

Front Cover
Souvenir Press, Jan 2, 2011 - Medical - 160 pages
Kangaroo Mother Care was created to help low-birth-weight-infants develop into healthy babies. Newborn babies remain with their mothers who supply the benefits of incubator care; babies are bound to their mothers, or other carers, in skin-to-skin contact. The physical contact regulates the babies' body temperature, and provides essential stimulation, as well as initiating bonding. Providing a history and beautifully illustrated practical guide to kangaroo mothering, Nathalie Charpak provides an essential guide to an approach that will change the way mothers relate to newborn babies, and improve the way hospitals treat premature babies.
