Research subject

Newborn hyperbilirubinemia is a common condition that requires treatment with a special light at the hospital. Being at the hospital can lead to separation, stress and affected attachment between the infant and the parents. In this randomised controlled study which is conducted at four hospitals in Mid-Sweden we will study the effects on parental stress, breastfeeding and other factors.
