It looks to me like the nurse place the baby hand around her sisters neck.

Actually, it’s instinctual if you’re in touch with your natural instincts. The baby comes out of mom’s womb with a 100 per cent surrounding of touch, insulation and that heart beat near by. So holding your baby close to you and allowing the baby to again feel surrounded while hearing and feeling your heart beat, gives back the security felt in the womb those first prenatal years of life. It’s comforting which is biggest step to healing.

I find it ridiculous that the name of the nurse is never mention, and if it were a doctor who did this, the name would be available and most probably become an icon with honors on top.
It's not skin to skin contact it's the energy of love that saves people. Love more and save a life.

My Baby still demands skin contact she holds my arm and sleeps! Children r like that, it's not going to spoil them and there's no need to so called toughen them up by putting them in their own room. I just feel sorry for babies in such families. Loads of hugs kisses contact is just lovely for kids a warm cosy loving caring safe environment. That's all they want that's all anyone wants.

We have become so accustomed to and reliant on high tech that we forget about the most simple way God designed us to heal through touch. Those babies bonded in the womb and no doubt the comfort the struggling twin felt when reunited was enough to calm and restore her. What a wonderful and intuitive nurse - but this kind of common sense care is often practiced in other countries. I like to think she got a little divine inspiration as well as the photographer who captured the moment for the world to see how love works.so powerfully in our fragile lives. What a beautiful photo for the girls to celebrate their sisterhood.

My son was born after a very difficult labor with emergency C-section. Immediately after birth he went into a seizure from the pressure on his brain and stopped breathing. Of course they rushed him away they gave him oxygen and they put him in ICU. They said he was not able to breathe on his own. I argued with the nurses and doctors for two days well his condition did not improve. Finally they allowed me to hold my son. Immediately he began to breathe on his own and was doing just fine. Today he owns his own business he is 25 years old and very healthy. Human touch is what the baby needs when it is born. Oxygen, tubes, and all of the other stuff that he’s done should be secondary to human touch. If you do not touch a child when it is born he can develop what is called marasmus and return to the fetal position refuse to eat and die

My twin, Peggy has always been stronger. We were placed together in the same incubator in 1966, she 3lbs me 2. Imagine our parents surprise When, during my birth, they found out our mom was having another! At 18 years, we were almost 6 feet tall. I cried for a whole year when we were attending different universities in Texas. I went to Texas Tech, and Peg Went to Texas State. We received volleyball scholarships and actually played against each other, twice. We each have a win. Today, at 52, we live about 25 minutes away from each other, but we are closer now than ever. OH yea, I am left handed and she is right. No, we don't think alike at all as one can imagine. I am the most grateful woman that Peg has my back, and that no matter what, we love each other dearly.

I had twins, premature, 1 sickly. The healthier lifting his big head & rolling over in his incubator. Nurses in the special care nursery went wild! When we went home they had a crib which grew into a. Jr bed (longer than reg crib). From their 1st night they Always meet in the middle even tho every time i laid them down at opposite ends, always!

I think this is related to something called "Failure to Thrive". There was an experiment done in 1944 where children weren't given affection but were only given the most basic physical care. Diaper changing, feeding, bathing, etc. But no singing, hugging or playing. After half of the babies died, the experiment was halted. Bizarre how even that recently in human history we didn't know that human beings needed affection to live. Crazy that even nearing the turn of the 20th Century we still hadn't realized.

Can you also take time to also feature and give credit to the nurse who thought of this? Nurses get a lot less credit for the work they put in, and it needs to start changing.

It’s interesting that she said, ‘don’t try this at home, these children were being closely monitored and on oxygen’ - What?!!! Really?!! My boy/girl twins shared a small crib for the first five months of their lives. SIDS?!! Way overthinking, but I guess they’re just covering their asses. Just be a mom, relax and see how they comfort each other and have each other’s backs from when they were womb mates.

MrsClippit (3 months ago)
In Dec 1997,my twin grandsons were premies but only at 30 days early. Their names are Samuel and Elijah. So Samuel got stronger and was able to come home. Elijah was in the hospital for another week and then he was allowed to come home.Elijah was not thriving. He just slept and slept and was not accepting any milk. He was losing weight. So one day while I was visiting I told my daughter that they were in the womb together and now they are separated.I felt the urgent feeling to move both babies into the same crib. So we put them into the crib together and OMG! Samuel put his arm around Elijah and about 1 hour later Elijah began waking up and was ravenously hungry! It was so amazing! For many years I had heard about how multiples should be placed in the same bed together. I dont understand why everyone is acting like this is a NEW DISCOVERY...
Carole S (3 months ago)
Seems obvious that infants wouldn't exactly thrive going from the warm surround of the womb to being alone on a flat surface. Yes, I realize they were tiny... all the more reason to provide them with maximum comfort and security. Are ppl are dim?

JoJo Pemb (3 months ago)
I don’t know why this isn’t done more for premature multiples. The babies are in the same womb together for 9-10 months in very tight quarters and their bodies are always touching. So to be born and then be separated immediately after birth can shock them in a way. It’s a form of trauma.
