Kangaroo Care during COVID-19

Thank you for the work that you are doing during this horrible pandemic.

Nurses that support KMC are finding a lot of push-back about allowing parents to KMC. Parents are terrified of hurting the babies.

Could WHO, Kangaroo Foundation, any KMC expert, or any other entity share with us an official statement about kangaroo care during COVID-19.?

We (parents) feel that "If the parent is allowed in the unit after being screened for exposure and symptoms, then KMC should be encouraged, after all, KMC is the safest place for the baby."
