There is often a lot of focus on the bond between a Mum and her new baby when they are first born. There’s the very first cuddle as soon as they come out, their first latch when breastfeeding, their first nappy explosion, the first time they open their eyes. It’s such a special moment. But what if its not like that? What if your baby is put straight into an emergency incubator and wheeled away to Neonatal before you have had chance to get over the last contraction or before you have left the operating theatre?
