Think back to when your babies were born—what happened in that first hour after birth? Did you hold your baby? Were you encouraged to breastfeed your baby? Or did someone take your baby away from you?
These days most babies go directly to a health care provider for evaluation, or, if the baby is breathing and appears well, the mother will get to look at or hold the baby for a minute or two before someone whisks the baby away for “necessary” medical care.
