Kangaroo Mother Care is the term used worldwide for the care of low birth weight babies. The key part of KMC is skin-to-skin contact, for this reason we have separated out the technical and more medical aspects of this to a separate website for health professionals.


On the skin-to-skin contact website you will find the science and evidence for why KMC works. There are details of Dr Nils Bergman's research, talks, courses and other services, in South Africa and internationally.
