The First Few Minutes of Life for a Premature Baby

Here is a great clip of the first few moments of life for a baby born at 28 weeks gestation in Australia. A helpful clip for mums who might be preparing for the risk of a baby coming early so that they know a little bit about what happens.

This clip has caused a bit of controversy as those caring for the newborn are not wearing gloves. I think this is NOT the practice in UK. Although my experience is now very out of date my firm recollection is that everybody who touched my daughter wore gloves.

Be reallly interested to hear from others around the world as to their local practice?
