Mercy Gilbert’s skin to skin bonding program, Magical Moments, encourages mom and dad to bond with their newborns immediately after birth. The skin to skin bonding program establishes a warm, welcoming environment to greet their newborn, help them adjust to their new environment and fosters a connection for the new family.
What is skin to skin bonding?
Skin to skin bonding means your newborn is placed unclothed onto your chest against your skin, and under a blanket, helping baby feel safe and warm and maintain a healthy blood sugar.
