Skin to Skin, Heart to Heart t-shirt

We are thrilled to premiere our newest design with heart! This t-shirt is a tribute to the lifesaving practice in neonatal intensive care units, and homes, across the world, of skin to skin or "kangaroo" care. 

In partnership with BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre Foundation, this new shirt honors those first hours and days when life is as precarious as it is precious. With this "treatment", baby is held on mama (or papa)'s chest, and both are bare. It works miracles: baby's body temperature, breathing and heart rate stabilize. It is also said that the benefits of skin to skin contact last for years afterwards.

This t-shirt is printed with this wonderful message printed right on Mama's heart, and is a v-neck style to enable at least a little bit of that life-affirming and hugely beneficial to health skin to skin cuddle, when you can't take your whole shirt off!

Partial proceeds donated to BC Women's Hospital and Health Centre Foundation.

With 60 tiny beds, BC Women’s Newborn Intensive Care Unit operates the largest, most specialized Newborn care centre in the province. BC Women’s Newborn ICU cares for the sickest and smallest babies from around the province. Sometimes they weigh as little as one pound or are born as early as 16 weeks before their due date. Indeed, our little Finn was born at 28 weeks...and he is an amazing, healthy, happy, curious, goofy, wonderful boy now! Skin to skin works, for life.
