Nurse Saves Dying Baby By Placing Her Next To Twin Sister.
It's Called The Kangaroo Effect
Putting Kyrie and Brielle next to each is what saved Brielle. "Kangaroo care refers to the act of placing your newborn on your chest - skin to skin. It's good for you and it's good for baby. Numerous studies have documented the benefits of kangaroo care. They include improved heart rate, oxygen saturation, breathing, sleep, weight gain, breastfeeding and reduced crying," reports Akron Children's Hospital. The twins connection ended up being their saving grace!
Skin-To-Skin Contact Is Necessary For Newborns
Doctors from all over the world believe that skin-to-skin contact is vital for newborns. Moms and dads are told to hold their new babies on their bare chest, allowing for their child’s bodies to take in all of the benefits. While this is exceptionally beneficial for premature babies, specialists in the neo-natal field agree that every newborn should have skin-to-skin time with their parents. "Research has also found positive associations with cognitive and motor skills, and psychosocial benefits, such as attachment and parental confidence," Akron Children's Hospital reports.
The Twins Live A Normal Life After Going Home
After their incredible ordeal, things for the Jacksons calmed down, and it was smooth sailing for then on out. After some time passed, the Jacksons were able to take home their babies. The girls grew up to become best friends. When they were little, they didn’t know how important they were to each other, but once they were able to understand what they went through, their love grew even stronger. The twin’s bond is just as incredible today! Wait until you see them now!
The Girls Are Now All Grown Up
Seeing them today, you would never guess that they were born 12 weeks early. Now that they are 23, they are doing better than okay. Brielle and Kyrie are still extremely close, but that’s obviously not surprising. The two of them are happy and healthy, and feel grateful to have each other. There’s nothing like the love that comes from family, but there is something quite special about the bond between twins, and Brielle and Kyrie can tell you all about that.
Their Miraculous Story Still Told On The Internet 22 Years Later
