The fifth film from the Small Wonders DVD shows how skin-to-skin contact (also known as 'kangaroo care') can help both you and your baby. You will see families move from being nervous to being able to hold their babies with confidence.
The Small Wonders DVD was created by child health charity Best Beginnings to support families on the journey with their sick and premature baby. The Small Wonders DVD, with all 12 films on, is available for free for families and staff in neonatal units in England thanks to funding from the Department of Health. It will soon be available in neonatal units in Scotland and Northern Ireland thanks to funding from these nations.
If you are not in a neonatal unit where the Small Wonders DVD is given out, you can purchase a copy of the DVD at bestbeginnings.org.uk/Shop/small-wonders-dvd
