Rescuing Hug

Just spotted this on Tralalere. A very touching story, so I really wanted to share:


This picture is from an article called the “RESCUING HUG”

The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently each were in their respective incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two, threw an arm over her sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller baby’s heart stabilized and temperature rose to normal.
Another example how much babies need close skin contact. You can read the rest of the story here.
