Receiving this “First Embrace” or skin-to-skin care not only keeps the baby warm, it helps initiate breastfeeding, ensures proper umbilical cord care and saves lives. (...) Prior to 2014, babies were routinely separated from their mothers after birth for at least 20 minutes if they were born vaginally and six hours or longer if they were born via C-section, and few practised skin-to-skin care.  In November 2014, the hospital introduced Early Essential Newborn Care, a simple set of WHO-recommended, cost-effective interventions, such as skin-to-skin contact and early and exclusive breastfeeding, to improve the quality of care for mothers and babies during and after childbirth. (...) “Early Essential Newborn Care, including skin-to-skin contact, can be applied in operating rooms and drastically improves health and outcomes,” adds Dr Howard Sobel, Coordinator for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health in WHO’s Western Pacific Region and co-author of the study.
