A Dad And His Son Go Viral After Being Pictured Giving Skin-To-Skin To Newborn Twins
October 19, 2018
Medical experts are now encouraging skin-to-skin contact between a newborn baby and their parent, not only to facilitate bonding but to also improve the baby's health. But what happens when the mother is not available to do it? Well, for this family, a dad and his son decided to step up.
In a post originally shared on Forældre og Fødsel, a Danish family advocacy group, and later translated to English by the NINO Birth Facebook group, a man and his son could be seen holding newborn twins to their chests to practice the skin-to-skin hold.
