Twins start their lives side by side and after nine months in the womb, they enter the world together. Their bond is particularly intense throughout their existence.
On YouTube, viewers were amazed by a video showing two twin babies, a boy and a girl, holding each other in their arms while enjoying a bath after birth!
The two newborns embrace each other during a baby Thalasso bath.
The purpose of this type of bath is to recreate their life in their mother’s womb.
The babies cuddle and float in the arms and hands of an adult, and they appear calm and happy as the water flows over their tiny bodies.
The video was filmed in 2015 at a maternity ward and has been viewed over 20 million times.
People can’t get enough of the shared love between the newborn twins, who are not even aware that they have already been born.
That’s why a French nurse from the Clinique de Muette in France, with over thirty years of experience, Sonia Rochel, developed the Baby Thalasso bath.
This relaxing bath helps soothe the transition into the world and shows parents that bath time can be a relaxing moment for everyone.
Right after birth, Rochel gives the babies a warm bath with a gentle flow of water over their heads and eyes, and she massages them for 15 minutes, without using gels or creams.
While she does not recommend parents trying it at home without proper training and knowledge, she encourages them to make bath time a relaxing activity during the night.
She explained that she had been trained to give newborns a small bath after birth, like all other nurses, and she always wondered why the babies didn’t seem to enjoy it.
One day, while taking a shower, she realized how much she enjoyed the water flowing over her face. She was convinced that babies would love it too.
So, she tried massaging the babies with running water and noticed that they moved as they did in their mother’s womb.
She believes that this gives them the opportunity to remember their life before birth. Rochel also includes music in the technique and claims that 90% of babies stop crying after the bath.
The Baby Thalasso bath is reserved for newborns aged 0 to 2 months, and there are now certified professionals in Quebec, Canada who practice this technique.
