Kangaroo Mother Care:
Rediscover the Natural Way to Care for Your Newborn Baby

... is a video release of Dr Nils Bergman's highly popular talks,
summarised and presented in a way that every expecting mother can enjoy.
  (Running time: 26 minutes)


Kangaroo Mother Care is for all newborn babies, but especially prematures. This video summarises research and evidence to prove that the newborn thrives best in its original rightful place - on its mother's chest. A practical method of doing Kangaroo Mother Care is described.

SKIN-TO-SKIN CONTACT - the naked baby is placed against the mother's skin, where the temperature is perfectly controlled all the time. A mother's temperature will naturally rise 2 degrees Celcius to warm a cold baby!! Breathing is markedly improved. See selection of photographs from this video !!

BREASTFEEDING is an essential and natural part of Kangaroo Mother Care; breast milk is the only logical food! A few of its amazing effects are explained.

NEVER SEPARATE MOTHER AND CHILD!! The stress of separation causes hormones to be released which interfere with digestion and all other normal functions of the baby's body. Kangaroo Mother Care enables the baby to relax, and improves the heart rate and the temperature.

MOTHER'S LOVE is what the baby needs most. Doing Kangaroo Mother Care also empowers the mother, who knows instinctively that she is doing the right thing - giving her baby superb nursing care the natural way.

This video is a must for all prospective mothers and fathers, and their health care professionals. The care of low birth weight babies should be done under supervision of a health professional.

"Kangaroo Mother Care:
Restoring the Original Paradigm for Infant Care and Breastfeeding"

...is an original video release of Dr Nils Bergman's highly popular talks.
  (Running time: 51 minutes)


Kangaroo Mother Care is a method of care for all newborn babies, but especially prematures. This video provides the latest up-to-date research and evidence to prove that the newborn thrives best in its original "rightful place" - on its mother's chest. Kangaroo Mother Care has some vital components:

It is intended for health professionals, and explains WHY Kangaroo Mother Care works.

SKIN-TO-SKIN CONTACT - the naked baby is placed against the mother's skin, where the temperature is perfectly controlled all the time. A mother's temperature will naturally rise 2o C to warm a cold baby!! Breathing is markedly improved.

BREASTFEEDING - the baby is given the full benefits of the perfect food. Mother's milk has the exact proteins required. For premature babies the protein content increases automatically for better growth. The composition is such that the baby rarely suffers colic and constipation. Mother's milk contains antibodies against infections. Having the baby against the mother's skin has positive effects for the mother also, and stimulates the breast to produce more milk.

NEVER SEPARATE MOTHER AND CHILD!! The stress of separation causes hormones to be released which interfere with digestion and all other normal functions of the baby's body: the baby is in survival mode rather than growing normally. Kangaroo Mother Care enables the baby to relax, and improves the heart rate and the temperature. High levels of stress hormones can have permanent bad effects on the brain of the baby, resulting in behaviour disorders and lower IQ later in life.

MOTHER'S LOVE - is what the baby needs most. Kangaroo Mother Care leads to better bonding between mother and baby, and also father! Doing Kangaroo Mother Care also empowers the mother, who knows instinctively that she is doing the right thing - giving her baby superb nursing care for a secure and healthy future.

The video provides full details on why Kangaroo Mother Care works, and why it is so important for all newborn babies. It is intended for health workers dealing with healthy and "at risk" mothers-to-be, and for prospective mothers and fathers.

The actual application of Kangaroo Mother Care must be done under supervision of a health professional, and is not described in the video.
