about holding your newborn baby and for

all your new dads out there I know this

can be a scary experience so we're gonna

give you some tips today on how to do


joining me today is Jessica breeze she's

a certified Midwife at the University of

Colorado Hospital okay Jessica so tell

me tell me what to do here okay so a lot

of parents are really hesitant you're

not alone babies seem quite delicate

when they're just born the most

important thing is to remember that they

don't have a lot of neck control so you

always have to have a hand supporting

their head okay so the most basic one is

the cradle hold and that's just where

you put the head right in the neck of

your of your arm either side is fine
