Clinical Trial Summary

This study evaluates the effect of a late intervention of continuous skin-to-skin contact (SSC) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Half of the participants will receive the intervention and the other half will receive standard care.

Clinical Trial Description

The intervention is based on a method developed to facilitate closeness and human touch between parents and preterm infants in neonatal intensive care. Continuous skin-to-skin contact (SSC) means, in this study, that the late preterm infant is cared for skin-to-skin on the parents' chest, instead of in a heating-bed, 24 hours a day. The parents will take turns to care for the infant in SSC. ;
