The sacred hour: uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact immediately after birth
Newborn & Infant Nursing Reviews, 06/24/2013
Phillips R – The first hour of life outside the womb is a special time when a baby meets his or her parents for the first time and a family is formed. This is a once–in–a–lifetime experience and should not be interrupted unless the baby or mother is unstable and requires medical resuscitation. It is a “sacred” time that should be honored, cherished and protected whenever possible.
