Babies develop within their mother and are provided all the essential means of survival by being close to their mother’s body. The moments that occur after a baby is first born can have both short-range and longstanding effects. Numerous studies have been conducted in order to determine the benefits of uninterrupted skin-to-skin contact between the baby and mother (or sometimes father/partner), post delivery. It is reported that “The World Health Organization and the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund recommends that

They had given care to both mothers and their babies during C-section, and postnatal as well. Interviews that were semi-structured were performed, with it being centered on attaining the midwife’s impressions of kangaroo care between the baby and mother. The research states that “content analysis inspired by Graneheim and Lundman was used to interpret the interviews, and qualitative methods are used to describe and understand people's experiences in order to gain deeper knowledge” (Zwedberg, Blomquist, & Sigerstad, 2015, p. 2). This study served as a preliminary study for a larger one to be conducted among 600 first time mothers in order to aid in the application of evidence based care practice and how to eliminate any barriers (Zwedberg, Blomquist, & Sigerstad, 2015). This initial study, however, functioned as an “initial inventory” to begin to gain comprehension of such barriers. In order to utilize a heterogeneous group of experienced midwife nurses, half were chosen with less than 3 years of experience, while the other half had 10 or more years of experience in the field. Candidates were selected without the bias of the researchers by head midwives, and partook on a volunteer basis. They came from three different hospitals, none of which came from the researchers’ own hospitals. An information sheet was provided with a description of the study. The questions that were asked began as open-ended and fairly generalized, and then transitioned into questions pertaining to the caring process and approach to kangaroo care soon after delivery and onto the next day. Supplementary questions were then feasible to ask, including questions about the midwife nurses’ behavior. The interviews were recorded and transcribed. The duration of each interview spanned from 25 to up to 54 minutes (Zwedberg, Blomquist, & Sigerstad, 2015), and much discussion, collaboration, and reflection was done until a
