Paediatrics and Neonatal Chair
The unique Paediatrics / Neonatal Chair was developed in Scandinavia in a neonatology department where the children and parents have 24/7 skin-to-skin contact with their child. This is called Kangaroo Care or skin-to-skin contact (SSC). It is believed that the parents are the most capable of caring for their premature or sick baby. Kangaroo Care is an essential element when caring for premature and sick babies. Scientific research indicates that both short- and long-term Kangaroo Care has positive effects on the psychomotor and emotional development of the baby. Skin-to-skin contact is the basis of a healthy relationship between parent and child, it reduces stress and promotes healthy brain development. Kangaroo Care is therapy for parent and child.
