Skin to skin

Of course mom and baby’s health is priority but next is skin to skin. The first hour, typically called the “Golden Hour” is an uninterrupted 1 hour of precious time for mom and baby to bond.
It also:
🌟Decreases stress in mom and baby
🌟Regulates baby’s body temp, heart rate, breathing and blood sugar
🌟Initiates breastfeeding
🌟Transfers healthy bacteria
🌟Reduces crying
🌟Helps with pain relief
🌟More gentle transition from the womb

🦘If there are no or minimal birth complications right after delivery, demand skin to skin no matter how and where you delivered.
