Traditionally, non-medical, developmental intervention with premature infants has been a controversial topic in neonatal intensive care units (NICU). However, a small but growing band of researchers have been pushing for the acceptance of alternative interventions, such as kangaroo care and massage therapy, that do not resort to surgical or other medical practices.

    Kangaroo Mother Care is a method of care of preterm infants, particularly those weighing less than 2 kg. It includes exclusive and frequent breastfeeding in addition to skin-to-skin contact and support for the mother-infant dyad, and has been shown to reduce mortality in hospital-based studies in low- and middle-income countries. In addition, regionalization resulted in improvements in perinatal mortality 1 and neonatal morbidity 2 as the percentage of very low-birth-weight infants delivered outside of tertiary care centers decreased. Sick or premature infants, however, continue to be delivered at institutions that are unable to provide for all of their medical needs.
