November 18, 2013 (LiveActionNews) – In my many years of writing about women’s issues, I’ve heard countless feminists scoff at the idea that a woman could possibly regret having an abortion. In fact, they usually dismiss post-abortion stress as “anti-choice” propaganda.

A nurse who invented a bathing technique for newborns is weighing in on a viral video that has been seen by millions over the last week that features a parent washing newborn twins in a wash basin. The twin infants have their eyes closed and appear to be peacefully sleeping and enjoying the warm bathwater.
In the video, the twin babies finally begin to move and, when they do, they hold each other and snuggle closer.
There is little background on the twins themselves but a nurse who invented the bathing technique is now speaking out about it, and did an interview
The bathing technique, called the Thalasso Baby Bath, was invented by Sonia Rochel
, a maternity nurse in Paris, France. The twins in the video, a boy and a girl, were just a few days old when they experienced the bath, she told TODAY Moms. Their mother declined to release their names.
The video, which has had more than 3 million views on YouTube, was shot in the last month at the maternity clinic where Rochel works.
In an interview
posted online last year, Rochel – a grandmother of six — said she came up with the unique bathing method after taking a shower and realizing it felt great to have the water running on her face. So she decided to try the technique with the newborns and noticed it made them move, just as they do in the womb. She believes babies need to still have a recollection of their life before birth.
Rochel has bathed twins together once or twice before and said she was not surprised by the infants’ reaction in the video. The babies’ amazing response to the water is always beautiful to see, she added.
The Thalasso Bath is only for babies younger than 2 months old and Rochel cautioned that parents should not try to duplicate it at home.
