Unless a medical complication exists, your baby should be kept in close contact with you in the first hour after birth. This is called skin-to-skin, and is when your baby is placed chest-to-chest with you directly on each other’s skin. Babies who are placed in immediate skin-to-skin contact with their moms have less stress of being born, hold their body temperature better, have higher breastfeeding rates, have more stable blood sugars, cry less, have less signs of pain, and have improved bonding with their parents.

Hi Oby, I’m not sure if I understand your question, but your due date is a (really good!) estimation of when your baby will arrive. Only a small percentage of babies are actually born on their due date, but usually are pretty close to it! Good luck!
