LEAVE BABY WITH MOTHER TO LESSEN INFANT STRESS AFTER BIRTH

Pregnancy Over 40 - Don't Take The Baby Away After Birth

Most of us assume that everything the hospital does is good for our baby.
But what about whisking the baby off immediately after birth?  When I had my daughter they did take her for a few minutes because she had a slight problem breathing and they blew a little oxygen in her face.  It resolved itself and they cleaned her up and gave her back to me.   According to this article, taking the baby away may create some unnecessary stress.

It is standard practice in a hospital setting, particularly among Western cultures, to separate mothers and their newborns. Separation is also common for babies under medical distress or premature babies, who may be placed in an incubator. In addition, the American Academy of Pediatrics specifically recommends against co-sleeping with an infant, due to its association with Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS.

Humans are the only mammals who practice such maternal-neonate separation, but its physiological impact on the baby has been unknown until now. Researchers measured heart rate variability in 2-day-old sleeping babies for one hour each during skin-to-skin contact with mother and alone in a cot next to mother's bed. Neonatal autonomic activity was 176% higher and quiet sleep 86% lower during maternal separation compared to skin-to-skin contact.

Dr. John Krystal, Editor of Biological Psychiatry, commented on the study's findings: "This paper highlights the profound impact of maternal separation on the infant. We knew that this was stressful, but the current study suggests that this is major physiologic stressor for the infant."
