An adorable video of newborn twins mimicking life in the womb during a bath has skyrocketed to viral status after generating nearly 9 million views in less than two weeks.
In the clip that's drawing "ooh's" and "aw's" from all over the Internet, a nurse gently cradles a set of newborn twins in a shallow basin of water. The brother and sister, who are just days old, hug each other and seem comfortable and relaxed, leading some to believe they are recreating the environment of the womb.
"I think [the twins] are just incredibly at peace here: warm water and very close to each other gives them the soothing feeling they endured for 40 weeks and what they are used to," one YouTube user commented.

"Aw such a beautiful video," another posted.
"So cute and precious," someone else wrote.
The clip showcases a bathing technique called the Thalasso Baby Bath, which was invented by French maternity nurse Sonia Rochel. According to Today.com, Rochel created the Thalasso bath
after taking a shower once and realizing how good the running water felt on her face.
She decided to try the method with newborns, making sure to leave their mouths and noses above water, and realized it stimulated movement that resembled life in the womb.
The bath is meant for babies who are younger than two months old and should only be performed by a medical professional, Rochel said.
Not all YouTube users were touched by the video though.
"Why is she bathing two at the same time and apparently forcing them to cling to each other?" one person commented. "Why is this power-tripping midwife or mother doing this? Is it for views on YouTube, with the soppy music and the 'Awwww' comments from morons?"
