Overview

Sharda, School of Nursing Science & Research (SSNSR), Sharda University is organizing CNEon “KMC” on Date 09, February 2024.

Some 20 million low-birth-weight (LBW) babies are born each year, because of either preterm birth or impaired prenatal growth, mostly in less developed countries.LBW and preterm birth are thus associated with high neonatal and infant mortality and morbidity. 
 
Therefore, the care of such infants becomes a burden for health and social systems everywhere. For many small preterm infants, receiving prolonged medical care is important. However, kangaroo mother care (KMC) is an effective way to meet baby’s needs for warmth, breastfeeding, protection from infection, stimulation, safety and love.

Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC) is a special method of care of low birth weight (<2500gm) babies. As the name suggests Kangaroo Mother Care consists of keeping the baby in close skin-to-skin contact with his/her mother as practiced by female kangaroo animal for their babies.
