Our second video from our series of topics from Doula Katrina Meek from Cuddles & Co Doula Service is all about the first 12 hours after birth.
Skin to Skin contact time has the most amazing affect not only for mom and baby, but even for dad and baby. Within minutes you will start to see the benefits of skin to skin contact; this includes stabilization of body temperature, transfer of good bacteria & very importantly the initiation of breastfeeding.
You can have this skin to skin contact time with your baby regardless of the type of delivery you have chosen.
Make sure you keep following us to see our entire series from Katrina. Our next episode will be live tomorrow
