Really interesting article about the importance of skin-to-skin contact when baby is born via c-section or even if your newborn needs to spend time in the NICU. There are ways to cue a similar hormonal response as if you'd had a non-surgical birth, and this can really benefit you and your baby's recovery in the early days!

#1 takeaway: "I’ve seen parents and doulas change hospital practices by asking questions and being assertive."
