About me/my research:

My research focus is different aspects of skin-to-skin care between the premature infant and the parents. It has been proven beneficial for both the infant and the parents regarding for example physiological stability and bonding between the infant and the parents. I have examined the utilization of the method in the Scandinavian countries and now may main focus is to see if the method can have a pain relieving effect
