Figure S1 Time a stable premature infant cared for in an incubator (a) or a cot (b) would normally receive skin-to-skin care per day.
Figure S2 Mean values of how comfortable the respondents from different countries were to enable skin-to-skin care in 12 different situations or medical conditions. Answers range from 1 = very uncomfortable to 5 = very comfortable. Error bars represent 1 SD. Differences between countries were statistically significant for Denmark versus Finland, Norway and Sweden (***), Finland versus Norway and Swe den (***) and Denmark versus Iceland (**) (Scheffe’s post hoc test).
Figure S3 Number of respondents reporting possible benefits of skin-to-skin care. Each respondent could choose the three most important motives for using SSC.
Table S1 Barriers reported for implementing skin-to-skin care at the own unit. The numbers indicate the proportion of respondents rating the barrier as 4 or 5 on a scale ranging from 1: not influential at all to 5: very influential.
