Immediate Kangaroo Mother Care Survey
Kangaroo Mother Care
Kangaroo mother care (KMC) is recommended as routine care for all preterm or low-birth-weight infants. KMC can be initiated in the health-care facility or at home and should be given for 8–24 hours per day (as many hours as possible). Immediate Kangaroo mother care (iKMC) for preterm or low-birth-weight infants should be started as soon as possible after birth.
