This Month's QI Story - Labour Ward Cuddles <30 Weeks
This QI Story comes from Imperial Neonatal Service in London. The team undertook a feasibility study to assess the safety of delivery room cuddles for babies born < 30 weeks gestation.
As part of the golden hour stabilisation for babies born < 30 weeks, if certain safety criteria were met during resuscitation, parents were offered a short 5-10 minute delivery room cuddle while covered in plastic bag and on respiratory support supervised by a consultant neonatologist.
