We implemented an evidence-based practice change to provide early skin-to-skin contact (SSC) in non-emergent, full-term cesarean surgical births among low-risk healthy women. There were three aims of this project: (1) To develop a protocol for health care professionals' roles in providing SSC in the operating room; (2) To implement the protocol; and (3) To evaluate the process of implementation of the evidence-based intervention. The "champion team" concept was crucial to the project's success.
