Abstract:

This article describes a simple, yet powerful postpartum intervention. The clinician gives each mother an instant photo taken of her with her newborn in the hospital a few hours or days after birth. For mothers, the photo becomes a snapshot-in-time to mark this memorable event. For clinicians, it represents a way to enhance an understanding of the mother with her newborn and facilitate the emotional connections between them.
