Early skin-to skin contact between the mother and newborn after birth creates an optimal environment for the adaptation of newborn to extra uterine life. This simple and cost-free procedure is recommended as an important improvement in care immediately after delivery. Skin-to-skin contact comforts the newborn, prevents heat loss, preserves carbohydrate stores, facilitates metabolic adjustment, reduces crying and pain sensibility. It also promotes early mother–infant interaction and bonding, Extended and uninterrupted early mother–infant body contact after birth was identified as a factor influencing effective sucking at the breast. Some studies indicate that it can also have a long-lasting effect on the duration of breastfeeding and helps stimulate the delivery of the placenta as well as provides lower risk breast cancer as result of breastfeeding. The action of oxytocin and the movements of the newborn feet pressing on the uterus, leads to a decreased risk of postpartum hemorrhage (D’ Artibale , Bercini, 2014)
As regard socio demographic and obstetric data of the studied sample the present study results revealed that there were no statistically significant differences among the study and control groups in relation to their socio demographic and obstetric data. Where, the mean age was (23.80 ± 2.310) years for study group compared to (23.46 ± 2.33) years for the control group. Regarding the educational level (48%, 42%) respectively for both groups had secondary
Mothers and newborns have a physiologic need to be together during the first moment of birth. Interrupted skin-to-skin attachment between mothers and babies can be harmful and can negatively impact short and long term health outcomes and breastfeeding success. Evidence supports instant skin-to-skin care after the birth, vaginally and C-section, during and after cesarean surgery for all stable mothers and newborns will enhance limitless opportunities for care and breastfeeding. Skin-to-skin contact after delivery is golden opportunity. Many studies validate that mothers and babies should be skin-to-skin promptly after birth. Not only promotes healthier baby and successful breastfeeding outcome, it is also
Skin to skin contact in the delivery room and breastfeeding are best for mothers and infant. Skin to skin contact helps mothers become confident with their infants, decreases the mother’s anxiety toward motherhood, helps produce more breast milk, and helps them become aware of their infant’s cues, not to mention an incredible lifelong bonding experience. As for the infant’s benefits of skin to skin contact, it helps with temperature regulation, stabilization of the heart rate, control of the infant’s blood sugar, and helps with weight gain. When initiating immediate skin to skin contact, infants should be placed on their mother’s chest for instinctive skills. The infant begins to smell their mother’s breast and look at their mother, which
Giving birth to a baby is the most amazing and miraculous experiences for parents and their loved ones. Every woman’s birth story is different and full of joy. Furthermore, the process from the moment a woman knows that she’s pregnant to being in the delivering room is very critical to both her and the newborn baby. Prenatal care is extremely important and it can impact greatly the quality of life of the baby. In this paper, the topic of giving birth will be discussed thoroughly by describing the stories of two mothers who gave birth in different decades and see how their prenatal cares are different from each other with correlation of the advancement of modern medicine between four decades.
Immediately after birth, the newborn has an identification band put on. One band is put on the ankle, one on the wrist. The newborn has footprints done immediately. Included on the footprint sheet are the newborn’s name, sex, DOB, time of birth, and mother’s health record.

Infant attachment is the first relationship a child experiences and is crucial to the child’s survival (BOOK). A mother’s response to her child will yield either a secure bond or insecurity with the infant. Parents who respond “more sensitively and responsively to the child’s distress” establish a secure bond faster than “parents of insecure children”. (Attachment and Emotion, page 475) The quality of the attachment has “profound implications for the child’s feelings of security and capacity to form trusting relationships” (Book). Simply stated, a positive early attachment will likely yield positive physical, socio-emotional, and cognitive development for the child. (BOOK)
When a woman gives birth there is a massive change in her hormones, and these changes evoke maternal behavior . For example, oxytocin also known as the “bonding hormone or the love hormone” is a chemical messenger that is released into the brain in response to social contact, it’s especially noticeable with skin-to skin contact such as breast-feeding . Oxytocin not only provides health benefits, but it also promotes bonding, such as between a breast feeding mother and her infant, and creates a desire for more contact with the individual evoking the release . However, it’s not necessary for maternal behavior
The relationship between mother and infant is extraordinary. A lot of research has been done to test the social stresses on dyadic synchrony on mothers and infants as well as toddlers and pre-teens. This article extends on previous research on FFSF exposures by observing not only the social interactions of the mother and infant from face-face interactions but also by still face pictures. Also, assessing the infant’s interactive style, the mother’s behavior and dyadic synchrony in observing the responses to the two FFSF exposures 15 minutes apart. This research is relevant to the neuro field, and how the development of an infant’s brain do to social stress.
To be successful, the mother should initiate breastfeeding as soon as possible after delivery (Nagtalon-Ramos, 2014). The mother should be taught the many breastfeeding positions by healthcare staff (Nagtalon-Ramos, 2014). These positions are as follows: Cradle hold, cross cradle or transitional hold, clutch or football hold, and the side lying position (Nagtalon-Ramos, 2014). Allowing the infant to consume no other food or drink other than breast milk will help to promote successful breastfeeding (Nagtalon-Ramos, 2014). Furthermore, having the mother and baby together twenty-four hours a day and breastfeeding on demand will assist in successful breastfeeding
The concept of infant-mother attachment is as important to the child as the birth itself. The effect this relationship has on a child shall affect that child for its entire life. A secure attachment to the mother or a primary caregiver is imperative for a child’s development. Ainsworth’s study shows that a mother is responsive to her infant’s behavioral cues which will develop into a strong infant-mother attachment. This will result in a child who can easily, without stress, be separated from his mother and without any anxiety. Of course the study shows a child with a weak infant-mother relationship will lead to mistrust, anxiety, and will never really be that close with the mother. Without the
This paper will explore the phenomenon of enmeshment between a mother and her child. It will begin by first providing a working definition for the concept of enmeshment, then go into more detail about how and why this manifests within the mother and child dynamic. Next it will discuss maternal enmeshment’s impact on the child’s development during childhood using the theories of Erik Erikson and John Bowlby as a framework of understanding. It will conclude by providing a brief overview of some ways enmeshment can adversely influence the child across the lifespan.
The results taken from the previous researcher’s study or institutional health’s reports regarding abortion among women. Compare with Article B, it stated that the finding clearly reported by showing the population of pregnancy women, women who had spontaneous abortion and also vitamin and metabolite status taken by pregnancy women. The results achieve the objectives of the study.
The hwealth outcome show the difference in life expectancy, rate in increase or decrease in mortality, mortality, illness and disability. There is a social gradient in that runs from top to bottom of social economic-----, however, mortality statistics are different ways of calculating death rates, prinatal mortality rate is the number of stillbirth and death in the first 7 days after birth per 1000 birth. Mortality is another social econopmic factors of the number dealth caused by age, sex, and atrea of residence. The infant death under one year of age, the pernatal death after 28weeks of pregnancyand in the first 7 days health is different between individuals. The study between health and socioeconomic, referred to ethnic inequalities in
