The beds, donated by the Atfaluna Foundation, allow the hospital to provide an additional service for newborns, keeping them near their mothers during the “golden hour”, or the first hour after birth, he said.

“During the golden hour, it is preferable for babies to stay close to their mothers because of future psychological effects,” Atoum noted.

Previously, at birth, newborns at the hospital were sent to a separate room, and were not kept close to their mothers except when being fed, he said.
