COSTA ROMERO, Marta; LALAGUNA MALLADA, Paula  y  DIAZ GOMEZ, Nuria Marta. Skin to skin contact after cesarean delivery. Theme update and actuation proposal. Rev. Esp. Salud Publica [online]. 2019, vol.93, e201902006.  Epub 07-Sep-2020. ISSN 2173-9110.

Skin to skin contact (SSC) between mother and child immediately after birth is now considered to be an indicator of good clinical practice as it offers multiple benefits for both: it reduces stress levels of the mother, it facilitates affective bonding, breastfeeding and the newborns adaptation to extra-uterine life. However, in the vast majority of hospitals, mother and child are separated until complete recovery following a caesarean section, which can be several hours. In this article the advantages of SSC after a caesarean section, were analyzed, as well as the main difficulties in order to carry it out, which include maternal or neonatal instability and the reticence of the professionals themselves. An actuation procedure model is detailed, for its implementation in a safe manner and that at the same time, contribute to humanize the birth.
