"Kangaroo Mother"

Saul Perez, 20, holds his newborn child as he participates in the "Kangaroo Mother" program at the National Maternity Hospital in San Salvador. The "Kangaroo Mother" program is a technique used for the care of babies who were born premature and underweight. Doctors say the body- to-body contact helps to increase the baby's weight and fosters a better relationship between the newborn and his mother, for better growth development. In the National Maternity Hospital of El Salvador, 13,335 women gave birth in 2010 and 18% of children born prematurely, according to data from the Maternity Hospital of El Salvador.
