The Thalasso Baby Bath or “Baby Spa” is a new bathing approach that LifeNews first reported on when a video of two twins went viral late last year. The twins were seen peacefully sleeping and holding each other in a bath basin.
The nurse who invented the unique spa, Sonia Rochel, said it reminds newborns of what their life was like in the womb.
Rochel came up with the bathing method after taking a shower and realizing it felt amazing to have the water running on her face. When she tried the technique on newborns, it made them move and position themselves just like they do in the womb.
In an interview Rochel said the following about her invention:
“I started observing babies really well … I’ve listened to them a lot because I realized that a baby tells us a lot of things … but most us aren’t used to listening to that. We hear many sounds as background sounds. We hear it – but we don’t really hear it.
So after going through this process, I told myself that I needed to do something for these babies. With this midwife I saw how birth for these babies was actually a beautiful experience and I wanted them to experience something equally beautiful once they were born.
That’s how I developed this special bathing technique who is there to welcome baby in all softness … it is like a welcome gift, my gift to them to welcome them into this world.
I take the time … for such a young baby so soon after birth, the memories of being in their mommy’s belly are still very vivid … and with the bath I want her to re-live those beautiful moments, and cherish them.”
