Wichita, KS – Parents want their children to grow into intelligent, creative, caring adults, but according to Dr. Barb Morrison, the care currently provided to newborn infants may be causing more harm than good.

Dr. Morrison, or DrBarb, is a certified nurse midwife (CNM) and among the most vocal advocates of “Kangaroo Care,” the method of holding an infant skin-to skin to strengthen the bond between parent and child, facilitate breastfeeding and  encourage social development. DrBarb is part of a growing movement among health care practitioners who hope to see Kangaroo Care practiced more broadly to become routine procedure in infant care.
