Some pictures are just too emotional for you to not feel moved.
An example of such a photo is of a young child who is helping his dad warm his twin sisters, who were born prematurely.
The photo, which gained new traction after being reposted again, was originally published on the Danish Facebook group Parents and Birth in Denmark approximately three years ago.
Maternity facilities in Scandinavia recently introduced a fascinating new procedure involving newborn patients.
Medical professionals employ the “skin-to-skin” technique to provide extra warmth and comfort to babies, particularly those who are delivered preterm.
Due to the immaturity of their central nervous systems and brains, premature infants experience extreme pain sensations. However, they appear to experience fewer pain reactions when skin-to-skin contact occurs, suggesting that it may have analgesic or calming effects.
The goal of this practice, which goes by the name “Kangaroo care,” is to provide infants with reassuring, good emotions during a crucial period of their development.
According to research by the National Institute of Health, this technique effectively reduces infants’ pain.
It is believed that this method helps preterm babies cope with the stress of giving birth, which speeds up their recovery and allows them to start thriving sooner.
The aforementioned Scandinavian maternity hospitals have seen wonderful results in recent years. Recent years have seen a remarkable 70% improvement in the premature newborn survival rate, up from 30%.
Only one instance of this method’s use has generated a sizable amount of online reaction.
A photo of a Danish Facebook page called Parents and Birth in Denmark shows a little child assisting his dad with the “skin-to-skin” technique. The boy is five years old.
The little child holds his twin babies, one on his father’s chest and the other in his own arms.
It seems like a tranquil scenario, with everyone relaxed and enjoying the advantages of this miraculous treatment used after giving birth with their eyes closed.
After being shared on the NINO Birth Facebook page not long ago, the photograph began to circulate online once more.
“Skin to skin contact helps the baby to breathe better,” explains Swedish professor Uwe Ewald in the caption that goes along with the photo, explaining the benefits of kangaroo care. “The child becomes more calm and gains weight faster. Research shows that parents bacterial flora – compared with hospital bacteria – reduces the risk of serious infections in these delicate children.”
