If we really believe that skin-to-skin is the best place for babies to stay warm, decrease stress hormones, enhance brain development, maintain blood glucose levels and more, then why wouldn’t we place all babies there, especially the ones who were born via cesarean. In April, we decided to try it. (http://wp.me/p24q0t-6j) Two months later, we have had many positive experiences! Patients have written glowing comments on their surveys, and we have learned that even when we think we are doing our best, we can push to do even better! Thanks to all the nurses, doctors, moms, dads and babies who forged the way to make Memorial Hospital an even better place to have a baby!
