Now for Some Good News

A premature baby died and then was revived by laying on his mother.


About Just Vegas

I'm a 30-something married SAHM which means the nightmare scenario that plagued my early 20's has become reality. Funny thing is, I kinda like it. I have 3 lovely daughters who are educated at home and at a part-time alternative school. I love animals and I love people (in the general sense, not everybody all the time). I have no income to speak of, I'm not crafty and I hate cooking. My skills include reading the internet, watching tv on the internet and conversing with people on the internet. I'm an armchair philosopher, spiritualist, agnostic, feminist, liberal, activist, political pundit and tv critic.

    That sensationalize what probably really happened…those kinds.

    Coincidentally, my professor is involved in nursing research in this area (Kangaroo Care). Premie mortality rates are known to drop when Kangaroo Care (skin to skin contact with mother) is implemented. She talking about yesterday. I had never heard of it before then.

    Darn phone keyboard!
    She also said Dad KC can be beneficial, but not as beneficial as with Mom. I think it’s facinating and wouldn’t mind getting involved as a research assistant.

    Fathers too? My husband is a hairy beast, I don’t think that there can ever be skin to skin contact at his chest!

      LOL! Hairy beast….

      It’s not the skin, per se, but synching the respiration….I’m sure that’s what happened in this case: the baby wasn’t actually dead (but quite near death) and then had better respiration (“revived”) when in kangaroo contact with the mum.
