Kangaroo Mother Care Learning Portal

With the Kangaroo Mother Care Method we save lives around the world. You can be part of it!

This method, which was started and developed in Colombia by healthcare professionals, has been recognized worldwide by Cochrane Library due to its contribution in reducing worldwide infant morbidity and mortality rates. The Kangaroo Mother Care Method has challenged traditional childcare practices related to premature or low-weight infants at birth; has allowed parents to recover their prominent role within the physical and emotional recovery process of their children, and it has made neonatology a more humane practice.

This Educational Portal has been designed for healthcare professionals certified in the knowledge and practice of the Kangaroo Mother Care Method whose common interest is to contribute adequately and rapidly to spreading the method worldwide by participating in the education of their colleagues. In this site you will find educational tools to achieve this.

If you have not yet been certified, we invite you to become part of this important virtual community, writing through the “Contact” link, to keep you informed and updated. Colombia and the world need people like you with a high degree of sensitivity toward these fragile children.
