The power of touch

One of the things you hear again and again and again before you have your baby is the importance of ‘skin to skin’ both as soon as possible after the baby is born and as it grows. It helps to build the bond between a baby and it’s parents, as well as providing it comfort. I never disputed this advice but nothing I was ever told made me understand the power of skin to skin contact until I saw this video. What happens is, in my view, the closest thing you can ever get to a miracle! Whilst it’s difficult to do full skin to skin regularly in winter because I don’t want H to get cold, I have made even more of an effort to make sure she has skin contact with Sam and I very regularly since watching this.
