At Sunnybrook, a new technique is being used and studied called skin-to-skin C-section. Immediately after the baby is born, he or she is passed to the mother’s bare chest for skin-to-skin contact. And if the mother is medically unable, the partner can take over if he or she likes. Not only are there numerous medical benefits to that instant physical connection, but it also helps the experience feel far less medical.
