Adorable twins don’t realise yet they’ve been born

Editor’s note. This comes from our friends at the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. The twins’ embrace is so precious you may shed a tear of two of joy and happiness.

This beautiful video was taken just minutes after a set of twins’ birth by French nurse Sonia Rochelle, demonstrating her signature bathing technique for newborns called “Baby Spa.”

And while the 10- to 15-minute soapless massage bath is displayed in the video (below), it’s the intimate interaction between the twins that’s enough to melt your heart.

The twin infants have their eyes closed and appear to be peacefully sleeping and enjoying the warm bathwater. The twin babies finally begin to move and, when they do, they hold each other and snuggle closer.

Rochelle devised the method after years of working with newborns at the Clinique de la Muette in Paris. Though the method is meant to be a relaxing experience for both the bather and babies, Rochelle warns that parents should not try to reproduce it at home.

It almost looks like the siblings don’t know they have exited the womb — just look how entwined they are!
