Pregnancy and childbirth requires physical, emotional and mental strength, but the most rewarding part of it is seeing and holding your little one for the very first time. In some cases, the infant comes a little earlier than expected or what is known as preterm or premature birth. This happens when the baby is born before the full term or the 37th week of pregnancy. Premature infants need more care and attention because they are prone to infections and complications. This is where the kangaroo care method becomes beneficial.
