Thought this might be of interest... From BBC News Online

Bonding with baby

Sophie and Edward have been reunited with their daughter.

Hundreds of premature babies are born each day - and many will have some period of separation from their mother while doctors and nurses care for them both.

Sophie Wessex has now been reunited with her daughter after almost a week apart.

BBC News Online looks at the challenges facing both parents and children in this situation.

As a rule of thumb, the earlier a baby is born, the longer he or she will have to spend in a special care baby unit.

Usually, it might be expected that a premature newborn would spend a period in hospital equivalent to the remaining weeks of pregnancy that they missed, although this does not apply to all babies.

This creates special problems for mother and child, who are frequently denied the opportunity to spend much time together in the days immediately after birth.

However, experts say that these can all be overcome given time.

Ruth Powys, from premature baby charity Bliss, said that although parents might feel as if separation will harm their future relationship with the child, research has shown that it is perfectly possible to reestablish a normal bond with a child who has spent time in special care.

She said: "All these problems can be overcome - you can pick up where you left off once the baby is with you."

Too ill to travel

If the mother has had a caesarean section - major abdominal surgery - she may not feel well enough to go to see the child for days afterwards.

The situation is further complicated if the newborn is transferred to another hospital, either to better intensive care facilities, or because a cot is not available at the same hospital as her mother.

Some parents are separated from their new baby by hundreds of miles when there is a cot shortage in all their regional hospitals.

Ruth Powys said: "It's quite a problem - and many mothers and fathers of premature children have to go through it."

For the mother, it can feel a bit like they haven't even given birth to a child.

While a very premature baby may spend months in hospital, there is no way that, in most cases, the mother can be kept in as well.

After most caesareans, the mother would be expected to be discharged within four or five days, and, if they live locally, visit the special care unit from home each day.

If the unit is some distance from home, then some hospitals do have accommodation - or even locally-rented flats - which allow one parent to be closer to the child.

Ruth Powys believes that both baby and mother can miss out on the normal experience of bonding.

She said: "For the mother, it can feel a bit like they haven't even given birth to a child.

"And it can be a big knock to the confidence to have doctors and nurses looking after your child rather than you.

"It's a very stressful time which, unfortunately, very many people have to go through."

Many units encourage "skin to skin" contact between mother and child, which studies are now suggesting is beneficial to both.

It can be a big knock to the confidence to have doctors and nurses looking after your child rather than you.

Even if the child is being fed through a tube into its stomach, parents are often encouraged to carry out this procedure themselves.

"There is a growing body of research that skin to skin contact helps the baby maintain its heartrate better.

"One technique that is become more widely used in the UK is 'kangaroo care' - where the baby is literally strapped to the front of the mother and carried around all the time."

The Wessex baby was well enough to be moved from St George's Hospital in south London to her mother's bedside at Frimley Park, 35 miles away.

Unfortunately, in the most seriously-ill premature babies, it may be impossible to even take the child out of its incubator for more than a few moments at a time.

Holes in the side of the incubator allow staff and parents to reach in, but the amount of medical equipment attached to the baby can prove extremely upsetting for parents.

Seeing the baby undergoing what appear to be highly distressing medical procedures - such as heel-prick blood tests and the insertion of feeding tubes and intravenous needles - can also be tough for parents.

Ironically, Ruth Powys said the physical distance between mother and child may actually benefit the bond with the father.

"Often the dad ends up being the prime carer for a period, and many men say they feel this helped them create a better bond with the baby than they would otherwise have had."

'A FANTASTIC DAY'

Prince Edward has described being reunited with his wife and their baby daughter as "a fantastic day".

He said it was "wonderful to be together as a family" and was a "very emotional time".


Speaking outside St George's Hospital in Tooting, south London, he also thanked hospital staff and workers for all their work and support.

He said: "This has been a fantastic day in our lives, a day of great relief and great joy."

The Countess of Wessex was earlier reunited with her new-born daughter after they spent six days apart.

The couple's daughter, who was born several weeks prematurely, was brought back to the hospital after spending her first days in a special care baby unit.

Buckingham Palace said;the Countess was "hugely excited" to be seeing her baby again.

Sophie and baby are reunited

The girl was brought back to Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey around midday on Friday from St George's to which she was taken shortly after her birth last weekend.

Both mother and baby are understood to be progressing well.

A spokeswoman added: "There is no cause for concern."

The unnamed baby, who is eighth in line to the throne, was taken to St George's Hospital shortly after her birth by emergency Caesarean section on Saturday night.

As well as visiting Sophie at Frimley Park each day, Edward has also been travelling to south London to see the baby.

Now mother and daughter are just a five-minute drive from his home.

There was no further update on when the Countess will be well enough to leave the hospital.

Daisy will be a unique name for the Wessex baby to have as part of her name. Perhaps to lessen confusion in the family, too, with so many Elizabeth&#39;s in the family, the Wessex&#39;s baby could be named Elizabeth but called Daisy, like in a nickname?

Naming the baby Elizabeth would be a nice gesture.

And, naming your baby after your mother-in-law has to be good for family relations - no matter who you are&#33;&#33;

I&#39;ll love to see her first name to be Elizabeth&#33;&#33;

Queen Elizabeth has not yet got a granddaughter of either side named after her.

As this is the first time for Sophie, I think the baby should also be named after her and her mother.

Prince Phillip&#39;s mother, Princess Alice of Battenburg should be mentioned too.

So I recommend, ELIZABETH SOPHIE "Sophie&#39;s mother" ALICE. Hopefully Sophie and Edward could change their mind in order for their daughter to have the title of HRH Princess of Great Britain & Northern Ireland, otherwise Princess Micheal might get quite crancky for she was horrified when she was informed that her children would not be a Royal Highness.

Also, there are people with the name Elizabeth on Sophie&#39;s side of the family.

Sophie in hospital into next week

The countess will remain in hospital with her baby

The Countess of Wessex will remain in hospital to recover from the birth of her daughter until next week at least.

Buckingham Palace announced on Saturday that Prince Edward&#39;s wife is not well enough yet to go home.

The prince is at Sophie&#39;s bedside at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey where she was reunited with their daughter on Friday after six days apart.

Mother and baby had been treated in separate hospitals since the premature birth last Saturday.

Reunited

Sophie underwent an emergency Caesarean section at Frimley Park after suffering cramps at her Bagshot Park home.

The baby, who was a month premature, was initially transferred to St George&#39;s Hospital in Tooting, London, for intensive care.

Buckingham Palace said doctors at Frimley Park continue to monitor the condition of both mother and child.

On the baby&#39;s return to Frimley Park, Prince Edward spoke of his "great relief and joy" that his wife and daughter had been reunited.

Investigation

He described their reunion as "quite an emotional moment".

The prince, who missed the birth because he was abroad on a state visit to Mauritius, was with his family in hospital on Saturday.

The baby - who weighed 4lb 9oz at birth and who has not been named - was the first grandchild of the Queen to be born in an NHS hospital.

She will not take the title HRH.

There is an investigation underway into a Surrey police mix-up that meant the countess had to wait around half an hour to be taken to hospital.

The duty inspector in charge of the force&#39;s control room at the time has since been transferred to a desk job.

An inquiry into the incident is being carried out
