About Us

A baby is born with a need to be loved – and never outgrows it.

Frank Howard Clark

We are a group of parents, friends, organizations, and professionals that believe that every newborn has the right to feel loved, develop, and thrive.  We help by empowering communities to raise awareness, education, and the practice of Kangaroo Care / skin-to-skin contact.

We help unite, mobilize, and support parents, professionals, and the volunteer communities that help improve the outcomes of this practice and achieve all the benefits for parents and babies.

The International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day (May 15th) is a GLOBAL event that celebrates and recognizes Kangaroo Care parents, organizations, and professionals since 2011.  Join us and celebrate in your own way in your own community.

Start by joining the movement and taking the 2018 pledge to support Kangaroo Care. Once you submit your pledge you will be added to the mailing list (unsubscribe anytime) and see the results of the pledge of 2017 and 2018!  Be Counted!
