Burst ovaries aside, the photo sheds an important light on something that doesn't always happen after birth: skin-to-skin contact between fathers and babies.
Skin-to-skin is when a baby is placed belly down on a parent's chest right after being born (and dried off).
Despite all this, skin-to-skin happens more often with the baby and the person who delivered it, which is why The Rock's photo was so powerful — not to mention a great idea for all new parents, regardless of whether they gave birth.
Oh, and one other major benefit? Skin-to-skin can also improve sleep.
“For the partner, it’s equally great and helps form an early bond,” Taraneh Shirazian, M.D., an ob/gyn with NYU Langone Health, told Self.
But if you can do skin-to-skin, then make like The Rock and get both partners involved in it.
