Video of newborn twins goes viral, offers amazing look at what life must be like for twins in the womb

There is “trending”—stuff that people are following en masse—and then there is TRENDING.
As of 2:49 this afternoon, an incredible 9,483,192 people have already watched an adorable video of newborn twins who, although already born, “might not know it yet.”
That’s how Dylan Dreyer, reporting for TODAY’s “Mom,” described watching two very young babies serenely enjoying a bath together. The video (which can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qY-d46-gPMI) “is offering an amazing look at what life must like for twins in the womb, with the babies cuddling and embracing as if they were still in their mom’s belly.”
And it’s not to come away with that conclusion. As one viewer put it, “[T]heir closeness, their movements, their facial expression, and their feeling of completeness provides viewers with an amazing insight into what life in the womb must have been like for the newborn twins.”
The twins—a boy and a girl—were only a few days old when the video was shot last month at the maternity clinic where Sonia Rochel, a maternity nurse at the Clinique de la Muette in Paris, France, works.
Rochel, we learn, invented the bathing technique, called the Thalasso Baby Bath.
