Skin-to-skin to soothe Caring for premature babies can be stressful. The babies are tiny and vulnerable, new parents are often overwhelmed, and neonatal units offer little privacy with several incubators in a room. Placing babies to rest calmly on the parent’s chest, skin-to-skin, is best. But how to remain calm amidst the commotion? Ricky’s EMBRACE offers relief for many of the problems on the wards. The sofa’s tall back and sides offer seclusion and a sense of security. The hygienic immitation leather cushions provide stability and warmth, and tubes can be tucked away for a cosy snuggle and a healthy dose of oxytocin.
