Caption: Newborn baby in a resuscitaire cot undergoing inital checks by a nurse. The baby's skin is coated in vernix caseosa. This is a waxy substance secreted by the foetus's sebcaeous glands to protect the skin from dehydration in the womb. Without this waxy coating, the skin would become wrinkled from the constant exposure to the amniotic fluid.
