Entering motherhood isn’t always easy, but one Dutch hospital has implemented a revolutionary idea to make it a little easier.
Most hospitals recognize that the first few weeks of motherhood are critical. But sometimes, after giving birth, mothers have to stay in the hospital longer than expected.
To accommodate new mothers, Gelderse Vallei created unique clip-on baby bassinets. These special cribs make the stay more comfortable for the mother, as she is always near her baby.
“Mother and child are thus close together and can touch each other without the intervention of a nurse,” the hospital website explains. “Breastfeeding is easier because the baby is nearby. Especially after a cesarean delivery, if the mother is not very mobile for a few days, the manger has great advantages. The mother can not help the baby to take with them and put them back.”
For crafty families out there, the clip-on bassinet could possibly be added beside your bed at home too!
Sounds like a great idea to me, don’t you think?
