Examiner: Newborn twins mimic life in the womb… This video provides viewers with a rare insight into what life in the womb has been like for twins. “A video of a unique bath is offering an amazing look at what life must [be] like for twins in the womb, with the babies cuddling and embracing as if they were still in their mom’s belly,” reported Today Moms on Nov. 15, 2013.
The newborn twins mimic life in the womb video received more than 3 million views on YouTube after the video was taken last month at the maternity clinic where Sonia Rochel, a maternity nurse at the Clinique de la Muette in Paris, France, works.
At the time the video was taken, the twins, a boy and a girl, were only a few days old. The bathing technique that the newborn twins experienced is called Thalasso Baby Bath and it was invented by Sonia Rochel.
As the bathing video of the newborn twins shows, the babies are – just like in the womb – in an enclosed basin filled with water. While keeping their noses and mouths above the water level, the newborn twins experience the gentle movement of water as an adult is carefully pouring the water over their foreheads and eyes. In addition to the flowing water, the newborn twins are also gently massaged and relaxing music is played.
Watching the video of the newborn twins, their closeness, their movements, their facial expression, and their feeling of completeness provides viewers with an amazing insight into what life in the womb must have been like for the newborn twins.
Sonia Rochel, who is an experienced nurse, came up with mimicking life in the womb for the newborn twins while she was taking a shower and associated the comfort of the running water with life in the womb.
Even though watching the video of the newborn twins being bathed and gaining an insight into what life must have been like for the newborn twins in the womb is enjoyable, Sonia Rochel is emphasizing that parents should not try to duplicate the bathing at home.
