The Women & Family Center encourages skin-to-skin contact between mothers and babies for the first hour of life. It helps newborns adapt to their post-birth environment by stabilizing temperature, heart rate and oxygen level. Early “kangaroo care” also can make breastfeeding easier and improve babies’ sleep.
