Abstract PURPOSES: Skin-to-skin care after birth often is absent, interrupted, or delayed for routine procedures. The purposes of this project were to improve skin-to-skin care and exclusive breastfeeding at hospital discharge. METHODS: For Part 1, we used a descriptive observational design, with video-ethnography and interaction analysis (PRECESS-Practice, Reflection, Education and training, Combined with Ethnography for Sustainable Success), during a 5-day quality improvement pilot study in a U.S. hospital (August 13-17, 2010). For Part 2, we used electronic health record review to test for differences in monthly rates of skin-to-skin care and exclusive breastmilk feeding (baseline, July 2010; post-intervention, August-December 2010). RESULTS: In Part 1, 11 mothers and babies participated: 10 (91\%) received immediate skin-to-skin care, eight (73\%) received uninterrupted skin-to-skin care, nine (82\%) planned to breastfeed, six (67\%) of these babies were exclusively breastfeeding at hospital discharge, and five (83\%) of the six babies who completed all nine instinctive stages during skin-to-skin care were exclusively breastfeeding at hospital discharge. In our subsequent review (Part 2), we found a significant improvement (25\% above baseline) in the overall rate of skin-to-skin care across post-intervention months (Pearson χ(2)=23.798, df=5, p<0.000), predominantly from improvements in the cesarean section population. The rates of exclusive breastfeeding showed no significant change. CONCLUSIONS: The PRECESS immersion method may help to rapidly improve skin-to-skin care. Babies who undergo all nine stages during skin-to-skin care may be more likely to exclusively breastfeed. Mothers need support during skin-to-skin care to recognize their baby's readiness to breastfeed. Skin-to-skin care during cesarean surgery may reduce maternal stress and improve satisfaction with the surgical experience.
