Attend this presentation by Suzanne Colson, PhD, to discuss limitations of current knowledge and to clarify mammalian theory and mechanisms introducing new ways of thinking about early mother-baby contact.
There is no doubt that skin-to-skin contact is a lovely way for many mothers to greet their new born babies. However, midwives and other help professionals have a crucial role to play and a responsibility to continue to examine best practice. Given the numerous benefits claimed, it is critical to understand the relationship between naked contact and claimed outcomes.
Let’s ask several question in regard to best practice:
- Experts say that skin-to-skin contact increases breast feeding duration. Do we really know?
- What is more important, eye to eye contact or skin to skin contact?
- Does nudity really increases duration of breast feeding?
Suzanne Colson has drawn several revolutionary conclusions from her research. During her two hours presentation she will invite you to learn and be inspired by them. She will change the way you look at breast feeding and skin-to-skin contact.
