Babycam helps bed-bound mums
Under a new pioneering scheme that is being introduced to Glasgow's Princess Royal Maternity, a Scottish hospital mothers will be able to watch their premature babies via video link from their hospital beds.

Doctors at the hospital said the new Babycam system would allow mothers to bond with their children and help them to produce breast milk, which plays a crucial role in the baby's recovery.

During trials, women said being able to see their babies helped them express milk, which is a lifeline to vulnerable babies.

Dr Chris Lilley, a consultant paediatrician who developed the Babycam with the unit's clinical director, Andrew Powls, said:

"Mothers who are separated from the babies can have a very hard time bonding while they are unwell.

"The separation also makes producing breast milk more difficult," he said. "We all know nowadays how important breast feeding is, but with these babies it really can make all the difference.

"Being apart can have a huge psychological impact. The emotional reassurance Babycam gives mums is vital and can really help their recovery”.
