The 'BabyTime' maternity service allows mothers separated from their newborns to bond with their babies digitally. Developed in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, this service provides exhausted mothers with the chance to see their infant even if they're in different rooms.

After childbirth, some mothers may be too weak to see their newborn. This separation can cause anxiety and distress for both the child and mother. BabyTime works by providing an iPad to the new parent that links to another iPad facing her new-born child. The mother can then see her child and talk to the doctors caring for her baby.

This program is amazing because it allows a mother incapacitated by complications during childbirth or a cesarean section to bond with her new child. Without BabyTime, mothers would be subject to excess stress while waiting to finally see their child.
