Allow Skin to Skin in NICU'S and longer Visiting hours for mothers

Touch comes before sight , before speech. It is the first language and the last to go and it always talks the truth Margaret Alwood. How COVID19 is impacting the premature population of South Africa . While hospital groups, Departments of Health, doctors, nurses and therapists mean well restricting visiting hours for the parents of premature infants only harms both parent and baby. Allowing a 15 minute a day visit certainly doesnt prevent transmission however in many instances it is causing harm

DEAR CUSTOMERS AND CLIENTS. SMALL RETAILERS AND INDEPENDENT TENANTS NEED YOUR HELP TO SURVIVE. OUR NEED IS IMMEDIATE AND DESPERATE!
