Abstract/Description

Kangaroo Care, or otherwise referred to as skin-to-skin care, is a technique in which babies are kept warm by having skin-to-skin contact with a parent, usually the mother. The naked infant is placed on the bare chest of the mother, which has physical, psychological, and emotional benefits for both mother and baby. There is evidence that kangaroo care helps reduce the incidences of morbidity and mortality in infants (Crist, 2017).
