New article on skin to skin care after a cesarean! I’m so glad Evidence Based Birth addressed this topic.
“If a hospital staff member tells people giving birth that it is “impossible” for them to stay together with their babies after a Cesarean, that statement is false. Making the switch from routine separation to couplet care can be done—many hospitals have already done so. Although couplet care may be more inconvenient for staff in the beginning, in the end, keeping mothers and babies together after a Cesarean is what is best.”
“…evidence has shown that it is possible—and best practice—for mothers and babies to stay together after a Cesarean.”
