The parents' role

The parents' role

This is absolutely vital!

The presence of the baby’s mum and dad, their voices and physcial contact with the baby will help him/her get off to the best possible start and gain weight more quickly!

It’s encouraged by medical staff in all neonatal and Special Care Baby Units.
