    Kangaroo care is an important method to increase intimacy and bonding between the mother and her new child in those first moments after birth.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Kangaroo care involves placing the newborn baby skin-to-skin with the mother, providing warmth and closeness. This method has been proven to promote bonding between the mother and child, as it allows for physical contact and emotional connection. It also has several benefits for the baby, such as regulating body temperature, stabilizing heart rate, and promoting breastfeeding. Therefore, it can be concluded that kangaroo care is indeed an important method to increase intimacy and bonding between the mother and her new child in the first moments after birth.

    A birth is considered premature when the child is born before ____ weeks gestation.

    • A.

      35

    • B.

      36

    • C.

      37

    • D.

      38

    Correct Answer
    C. 37
    Explanation
    A birth is considered premature when the child is born before 37 weeks gestation. Premature birth can lead to various health complications for the baby, as their organs and systems may not have fully developed. The closer the baby is to full-term (around 40 weeks), the better their chances of being healthy and developing normally. Therefore, any birth before 37 weeks is considered premature.

    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the reason for a mother going into preterm labor is almost always obvious, but the correct answer is false. This means that the reason for preterm labor is not always obvious and can vary from case to case. There can be various factors that contribute to preterm labor, such as infections, medical conditions, multiple pregnancies, lifestyle choices, or unknown reasons.
