Skin-to-skin contact (SSC) is a well-documented benefits manner for neonates and mothers. Neonates are placed on their mothers’ chest after birth immediately which will contribute to the transition from fetal to extra-uterine life such as stabilizing babies’ respiration, body temperature and blood sugar. Besides, SSC also helps mothers’ recovery after delivery. However, some acute life-threatening events happened during SSC. Herein, we reported the sudden unexpected collapse of a well-appearing full-term baby occurred during SCC and to make health care providers and parents aware of this possible risk.
