Kangaroo Care & Postpartum Depression

  1. Kangaroo Care, or skin-to-skin care has a direct corrolation in decreasing postpartum depression. This is according to MCN journal: vol. 26, no. 4. They cite several case studies and it certainly sounds great .
    Is there anyone out there that has field experience with this type of scheduled interaction between mother & baby for the sole purpose of treating postpartum depression in high risk mothers? I would love to hear you comment on the subject .
