There are so many wonders in the acknowledgment of this world that are beyond our thoughts. The theories of science, logic, and medicine, do not believe in miracles. But, certain things leave us speechless, when it’s about the universe. In the same series, we want to share with you about “Rescuing Hug”. Did you know about the case of this miracle hug? If not, then read on!
The iconic twins
These twins, Brielle and Kyrie Jackson, were born 12 weeks premature in 1995.
One baby was struggling to be alive. Both the babies were kept safely in separate incubators and as per standard practice, newborn babies are kept in different places to reduce the risk of cross-infection.
Unconventional idea by a nurse
But the hospital nurse, Gayle Kasparian, didn’t feel that conventional remedies could rescue the baby, so she asked the authorities to keep them in the same incubator.
She also made sure that she had parental permission as well for keeping the twins in the same incubator. And as soon as the door was closed, they couldn’t believe their eyes as they saw Brielle snuggling up to Kyrie.
Within a few minutes, she was calmed down, and her blood oxygen readings were changing for good. And, in a matter of time, as they slept, Kyrie, a stronger baby, wrapped her arm around a little sister, Brielle who was struggling hard to get stability at her heart rate.
Dubbed as ‘Rescuing Hug’
And since then the picture of Kyrie hugging Brielle went to be known as ‘Rescuing Hug’. After this case, many hospitals adopted the way of co-bedding premature twins, triplets, and quads. For example,
The University of Massachusetts Memorial went on with the path-breaking concept in medicine and co-bedded at least 100 sets of multiple premature babies.
And what is more surprising is that over the years, they never found a case of infection among twins. Later researchers came to the conclusion that premature twins co-bedding has a good number of health benefits.
