RVI Ward 35 Staff celebrate Kangaroo Care with new video

This Wednesday (15th May 2019) marks #InternationalKangarooCareAwarenessDay and we’re kicking off the celebrations early!

Tiny Lives worked with Ward 35 staff to create the below film, which celebrates the amazing act of Kangaroo Care, or skin-to-skin. We asked Ward 35 staff why Kangaroo Care is so important, and they all gave wonderful, insightful answers regarding this simple bonding technique.

With research showing that Kangaroo Care helps with parental bonding, helps soothe baby, helps stabilise the baby’s oxygen levels and encourages breast-milk production, it is a very important part of the Neonatal experience. Find out more from the video below:
