Select language Select language English ລາວ Western Pacific Lao People's Democratic Republic Home Health topics Our work News Emergencies About us Home / News / Feature stories / Detail / Early Essential Newborn Care Early Essential Newborn Care 26 October 2015 - Select language - ລາວ It is a heart-warming scene to watch a mother holding her newborn baby for the first time, skin-to-skin on her chest, waiting for the first sign of feeding cues. This happened at the Xiengkhuang Provincial Hospital Maternal Ward, where two mothers who have just given birth, one of them in the past hour- were experiencing the Early Essential Newborn Care (EENC) practices, introduced by WHO. To reduce newborn mortality, which accounts for roughly 40% of all deaths under-five in Lao PDR, simple interventions have been established: immediate and thorough drying followed by early skin-to-skin contact, delaying clamping the cord after pulsations stop and prolonged skin-to-skin contact until the baby has completed his first full breastfeed.   (...) Weighing, bathing, eye care, examinations, and injections - anything that interrupts the initial skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding- unless the baby or the mother is in distress- should be done after the baby has fully breastfed.
