Skin-to-skin contact. Part one: just an hour of your time...
Pract Midwife. 2011 May; 14(5):40-1.PM

Abstract

A growing body of evidence suggests that extended skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby immediately after birth provides numerous and significant benefits including regulating heartbeat and temperature for the baby, protecting against infections, and promoting feelings of calm and wellbeing in both mother and baby. As a result the Baby Friendly Initiative has increased the amount of time that mothers and babies should spend in skin contact to one hour minimum, and much more where possible.
