Abstract:

If you have just given birth to a preterm infant, you and your baby both face special challenges. Parents long to help their baby but often feel isolated and frightened by hospital procedures. Now there is wonderful news for both babies and parents. Kangaroo Care, a technique pioneered in leading neonatal centers worldwide, gives you a unique role: a special way of holding your infant that provides crucial health benefits -- including shorter hospital stays. Kangaroo Care is a step-by-step guide to bringing these benefits to your baby -- even if your neonatal unit does not yet have a Kangaroo Care program.
