Skin to Skin is Best

Posted Aug 20 2009 10:21pm

In this beautiful story, skin to skin contact saves a child's life: "Parents 'Last Good Bye' Saved Their Baby's Life."  What is a sad about this story is that the doctors had no hope.  I've read/heard many a midwife's story where the midwife asks the parents to talk to a baby who is struggling to live and tell their baby they love him and welcome him and the baby lets out a cough and pinks right up.  Midwives have faith in the will to live and the power of love (and yes, they do use oxygen etc. too).
