Kangaroo Care helps newborns



Healthy newborn babies will get a warm and loving start to life at Baptist Health Louisville, snuggled on their mother's bare chest at birth.  Because the practice mimics how a kangaroo carries her baby, it's called Kangaroo Care, or skin-to-skin.  Kangaroo Care is known to be the best start for babies transitioning to the outside world.  It increases bonding, instills parental confidence, and helps with breastfeeding.  For more information, call (502) 897-8327.
