For the 2018 Kangaroo Care Day, we are joining forces with parents and parents organizations to show where and count how many hours babies are held skin to skin in all hospitals globally on May 15th. Click here for information and to register
I am Yamile, a native of Colombia and I dedicate my professional life helping babies and parents. I helped save my micro-preemie, Zachary, by holding him in Kangaroo Care for hours in the NICU, including when a flood shut down the power to all life-support equipment in 2001 in Houston. I founded Nurtured by Design, the only ergonomics engineering firm dedicated to family centered developmental care and kangaroo care.
This is Zachary now, 16 years old, with his dog Lucas.
He is my CIO, Chief Inspirational Officer and at
Nurtured by Design we work on his behalf!
