A simple and fantastic way to welcome your baby into the world.
However you plan to feed your baby, skin to skin after birth is a really good way for you to start to get to know each other.
In the first few hours after birth, having uninterrupted skin to skin with your baby will help them to go through some important developmental stages.
Please see a trailer below of our DVD about skin to skin.
Dads can do skin to skin too!
Immediately after the birth, its great for mum and baby to be kept skin to skin – this helps with getting breastfeeding off to the best start. However after a little while, if mum needs a break, its a fantastic way for dads to bond too!
