The mother and the little baby is an icon of a pair. It is the tangible representation of the miracle of life. Creating and bringing a new life in the world and nurturing it has always had a primal appeal among all humans. This is because it is mystifying, like the very Earth, which naturally creates life and nurtures it.
Mother Nature indeed.
Birth hence has always been an event of spiritual interest. And many religions hence worship the very act of birth.
The bond a child shares with its mother is absolutely magical too, the child being tangible proof of the mother’s satisfaction after pain and suffering and labor.
What can be more special than watching a babe clinging to its mother?
As a matter of fact, it is hence that poets and artists and writers have always seen their creative acts as acts of birth; but that never diminishes the glory of a real birth.
Social media has become a platform where people often see videos that make them smile or cry with joy or just simply look and go ‘aww’.
One very recent video has however absolutely left people speechless with a profound joy and contentment.
Brenda Coelho de Souza is a mother. Like all others she bore patiently the pains of pregnancy and gave birth to a little child on April the 5th, in Brazil’s Santa Monica Hospital.
Births are never easy and never simple, and neither was Brenda’s; she had to go under the knife, for a Caesarian section.
In case you don’t remember, Brazil has been under the radar for Caesarean violence or forced C-sections, with one Adelir making history by protesting it a few years back. But hey, this is not about anything that morbid.
In the said video, we can see Brenda’s little girl coming into the world and touching her mother’s face for the first time.
And guess what? Baby didn’t let go.
The little baby girl simply saw mommy and hugged her face and held on, like she should.
The moment has warmed millions of hearts and made millions more smile and simply marvel at the miracle of life and the deeper-than-the-deepest-ocean love shared by a mother and her child, right after the physical proof of their union is severed.
The video is something everyone should watch because it is about a love that cannot be explained or even put into words. It cannot be equated and “solved” by science, as no one can tell you why or how a child who is just a couple of minutes old understood who her mommy was and why she should cling to her. It is one of Nature’s deepest secrets and one of her first lessons in life.
Stay close to your mother and love her; she won’t be around forever and neither will the unconditional love you get from her.
