Parents are the experts on their kids and can help them heal.

Parents can detect subtle changes in their child's health as they are able to perceive slight variations in appearance and behaviour.  This means they can catch illnesses early and determine if their child is improving. Parents can also provide daily monitoring and compassionate individualized care. You can help your child heal. In fact, studies show that close contact between parents and their children can positively impact their health:   

  1. A mother's voice decreases stress hormones in children. This is very significant since stress hormones interfere with immune function. When stress is high, healing is impaired.
  2. Skin-to-skin contact reduces pain in infants. Pain induces stress and therefore interferes with immune function.
  3. Contact with mother's skin helps to regulate breathing rate, heart rate, body temperature, and blood sugar and improves weight gain and brain development in babies.
