You’ve probably heard about the importance of skin-to-skin contact with your baby. And you probably thought it sounded like a sweet, lovely way to bond with your baby. That’s true, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Maybe you heard it’s important to do right after delivery. True again. But it shouldn’t end there.
Join Marie and her guest, internationally acclaimed expert, Dr. Susan Ludington, PhD, CNM. They’ll help you to understand how the initial (first hour) and ongoing skin-to-skin contact is a critical part of your baby’s care whether he is born at or before term. You’ll be astonished to see how and why skin-to-skin contact works better than an incubator to regulate your baby’s temperature, blood sugar and sleep regulation. You’ll also see how this simple act provides an almost magical key to successfully starting and continuing breastfeeding, and how it can affect your baby’s moral development and behavior forever. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear Dr. Ludington.
