The world has awakened to the damage caused to women by gender stereotyping. Indeed, the WHO has recently created controversy by seemingly suggesting that no women should ever drink alcohol until the menopause, thus diminishing the role of women to a single purpose, child-bearing. I have a slight frisson of anxiety that by viewing (and evaluating) KMC as a medical intervention, and therefore in a sense, mothers as medical tools, we diminish women, and also the rights of all parents. I absolutely recognise the importance of the randomised controlled trial but perhaps our focus as neonatologists should be on supporting all parents to provide parenting appropriate to their babies needs? Apologies for a tricky question, but I would be interested in the authors, and other contributors, views.
