Newborn babies in Maine are getting a special gift from one OBGYN who is showing what good bedside manner really means.

From PopSugar comes a celebration of life that is quite moving:drbob

Once the baby’s been born and the APGAR has been administered, many doctors congratulate the new parents and head over to the next delivery room.

But Dr. Robert Sansonetti sticks around to give his newest patient a special gift.

For the last four years, the obstetrician from Scarborough, ME, has knit a cap for every baby he’s delivered. A solo practitioner for more than 20 years, Sansonetti started his side project after a Christmas present sparked his interest in the craft. Read on to see his sweet creations!
