The Magic Of Mother And Baby
One important action you can start immediately after the birth of your baby is “skin-to-skin”. The benefits are numerous. This is great for dads to do as well.
Skin-to-skin enhances bonding and breastfeeding, parent relationships with baby, better sleeping patterns for baby, and is known to decrease postpartum depression.
Watch this excellent video on skin-to-skin. Talk to your care provider or birthing facility to find out if they do this, if not request it. It’s that important. It’s your right to stay connected with your baby at birth.
