Abstract

The importance of thermoregulation in the well-being of the newborn infant is fundamental to the health of the baby, and this chapter includes the mechanism of heat loss mechanisms, the roles of the midwife in providing a neutral thermal environment for the baby at birth and in the postnatal period. In addition, the content includes the impact of cold stress and hypothermia on the baby, and the required management and care.
