Skin-to-skin in baby with Down’s syndrome
In these special films, families share their experiences of skin to skin with their babies
at different stages.
The different short films available include moments immediately following a C-section, in the neo-natal unit, with twins and with older babies. We show that every baby benefits from this wonderful experience. Please see the descriptions of each film for what each one includes.
In a very moving clip mum, Lucia, explains about the importance of her experience of skin-to-skin with Baby Antonio who was born with Down’s syndrome. She talks about the experience while breastfeeding Antonio and how she felt it was important to both her and Antonio particularly as Antonio was taken to the intensive care unit very shortly after his birth.
