Newborn twins don’t realize they’ve been born, refuse to stop cuddling like they did in the womb

These twins thought their nine months in the womb weren’t over
In 2013, a short but shocking video circulated on YouTube showing newborn twins cuddling in a cute postpartum bathroom. It seems that the little ones do not even realize that they have been born yet because of their reactions.

Just days after the birth of these twins, a boy and a girl, French nurse Sonia Rochel pulled out her phone to record her signature bathing technique for newborns called “baby spa.” The twins whose mother wanted their identities to remain anonymous seemed to enjoy every second of the bath. They embraced as they did in the womb.


According to TODAY Moms, “They are already born, but they may not know it yet. This unique bathroom video offers an amazing look at what life must be like for twins in the womb, with the babies snuggling and cuddling as if they were still in their mother’s womb.”
Thalassotherapy baby bath
A 51-year-old French nurse, Sonia Rochel, is credited with developing the technique called “Thalasso bain bébé” in French. It is a method of bathing newborns where they are bathed and massaged for 15 minutes under running water.

This is done to the sound of relaxing music without the use of gels and creams.

The goal is to show how relaxing bath time can be for both parents and newborns. [2] The adorable video shows the twins cuddling as the nurse holds them in a small bowl filled with warm water. They only have their mouths and noses above the water.
They look so peaceful and ethereal in the water as the nurse gently cradles them. She then pulled them out of the water and wrapped them in a comfortable-looking towel to dry them off.

The video, which originally went viral in 2013, now has more than 49.5 million views. And while the bathing style and the babies’ reaction surprised several people, Rochel, a grandmother of six, said she wasn’t surprised by her reaction as she has bathed twins together several times. [3]
According to Rochel, the method should only be used on babies younger than two months. And while she doesn’t think parents should try this technique at home to avoid getting water up their noses, she encourages them to cut back on bath time a bit and make it a “restorative nightly routine.”

Restorative night care for babies
This is essentially a fancy term for slow, relaxed baby baths. Like most nurses, Rochel was trained to give babies a brief bath after birth. However, they always cried in the water and Rochel wondered why. It was difficult for him to understand why they were crying when they were immersed in an environment similar to the one they had just arrived at. She also noticed some strange movements from them.
