A bond between a mother and her child is something beyond what words can describe. This video only goes to show just how strong this bond is. There is no greater satisfaction for a mother than holding her little-one in her arms and gazing in wonder at the tiny feet, arms and that little nose that she created. You might read a lot about how to bond with your newborn but this bond is made even before you realize it and it lasts a lifetime.
For 9 long months, you have provided with nutrition and oxygen that your baby needed for the development. Even after your baby is born, s/he will rely completely on you for everything at least until the age of 2 to 3 years. As your child grows up, you might fear that this connection will be lost or tampered somehow but that isn’t true. It only grows more powerful and intense.
The video shown above was shared by Maternidade Cor de Rosa on Facebook and went viral immediately. When a child is born, doctors usually place the baby on the mother’s chest to promote skin-on-skin contact. When Brenda Coelho’s newborn was brought closer to her mom’s chest, she amazed everyone by clinging on to her mother lovingly. The baby couldn’t have enough of her mother and continued to gently caress as everyone watched in awe.
If this video isn’t proof of the unconditional love between a mother and her child, we don’t know what else is!
