Company/Organization: Precious Image Creations, Inc.

Precious Image Creations, Inc. was founded in 1983 to design and manufacture fashionable clothing for the Nursing Mom.  In 2001 I learned of the benefits of Skin to Skin Contact. I immediately began to develop garments for Mom to hold her infant Skin-to-Skin, Breastfeed and be hands free. The market was not ready for it. I met one of the top researchers in the field of KMC and was mentored by her and her associate. In 2003 I was certified in Kangaroo Care by UISKC and have remained active. I began hospital in-services on Skin-to-Skin Contact. I developed Slide presentations and materials to educate the healthcare professionals and Moms. Because of the critical need for STS the first week of life, my focus has been to work with the  birthing centers. Our garments have been used by hospitals for the past 8 years. The research and development stemming from these associations has led my company to develop a full line of garments for Skin-to-Skin contact use in L&D, OR, NICU, Postpartum, and the first year of life.
