Lectures and seminars Cancelled: SFO-V Lunch seminar: Early skin to skin contact for newborn infants
Due to a limited number of registrations, the SFO-V Lunch Seminar on "Early Skin to Skin Contact for Newborn Infants" has been cancelled for the time being. We recognize the value of this topic and plan to reschedule the seminar for the start of the autumn term. More information will be shared soon.For any questions, please contact us.
The lecture will focus on the care practice of skin-to-skin contact between newborn infants and
their parents and why this is good for all newborns, everywhere.
I am a midwife and associate professor at the Department of Women’s and Children’s Health at KI. My area of research is Reproductive Health.
With my group and collaborators, I mainly perform research that focuses on pregnancy, birth and the early postpartum period, breastfeeding and infant development throughout the first two years of life. We study, in prospective longitudinal trials and in intervention studies, environmental factors that occur during developmentally significant phases in life (e.g. pregnancy, birth, the immediate and early postpartum period, infancy) that influence the development of the infant, but also the health and well-being of the mother and father.
My research is practice-oriented, important for midwifery and staff working with new families and for new families themselves!
The optimal goal is to improve the care that is provided. The lecture will focus on the care practice of skin-to-skin contact between newborn infants and their parents and why this is good for all newborns, everywhere
