According to WHO, mostly babies are die in their neonatal period. India, current infant mortality rate is
about 32 infants per 1000 live birth. A Quasi Experimental study was conducted toevaluate the effectiveness
of Kangaroo Mother care on physiological parameters of premature neonate of experimental group and
control group in selected hospital in Vadodara city. Sample size for the present study was consist of 60
babies. (30 experimental and 30 control group) The instrument used for data collection are Kangaroo Mother
Care Assessment Flow Sheet (KMCAFS). The data analysis was done by using descriptive and inferential
statistics. The result of the present study was that most of the premature babies after receiving KMC Care,
there was a significant incensement in the weight. Here the paired t-test value of temperature and weight
are(t<0.050)not significant and pulse and respiration are (t>0.05) significant. The study concluded that KMC
is a simpleand acceptable method for the mother can be continued at home and there by improves the infant
growth and reduce morbidity.
