Scroll Down to Register for this webinar.

Why you want to attend:

The care delivered during the immediate post-partum period is traditionally driven by routine and is often times filled with interventions that require the newborn to be separated from its parents.  However, there is mounting evidence that offering early and uninterrupted skin to skin contact immediately after birth have tremendous benefits to the mother and infant.  With an understanding of these benefits you will find it worth the effort to eliminate the barriers to implementing this simple practice that can offers life-long implications.

In this one hour webinar, Dr. Raylene Phillips will outline the physiologic and psychological impact of early skin to skin contact.  She will share both the scientific evidence and practical tips of how to implement this practice in your hospital.

Whether you attend deliveries or work in the newborn nursery, the NICU, Post-Partum, or Recovery this webinar will be eye-opening and relevant to your practice.

Our Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe at least two benefits of early skin to skin contact to both newborn and mother.
  2. Identify two non-critical interventions during the first 90 minutes of life that could be delayed  until after the first breastfeeding experience.
  3. List the nine steps of infant behavior in the immediate post-partum period.
