Character 38: Making a Difference–Baby Cuddlers

4:42

A St. Louis-based hospital is expanding its new ‘baby cuddlers’ program as the need for support for drug-exposed babies grows. SSM St. Mary’s Hospital already has a unique program that helps pregnant women who’ve taken drugs. That relationship means many of those women deliver their babies at St. Mary’s. Growing research supports greater human touch rather than drugs to help drug-exposed babies. Volunteer baby cuddlers go through training and then help as a back-up for parents, nurses and other medical providers.
