  • Duration: 60 Mins

This presentation will look at current recommendations for skin to skin contact from UNICEF and WHO and explore why current modern systems do not support implementation in practice. I will look at the barriers and the drivers, and tell my own story of change. I will also discuss the phenomenon of social media and how sharing good practice through this medium connects maternity workers with women of the world. Also we will discuss why being a health care radical helps me to question practice and speak out for women and newborns.
