Rescuing Hug This is a picture from an article called The Rescuing Hug. The article details the first week of life of a set of twins. Apparently, they were in separate incubators and one was not expected to live. A hospital nurse fought against the hospital rules and placed the babies together in one incubator. When they were placed together, the healthier of the two threw an arm over her

sister in an endearing embrace. The smaller babys heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal. Josh and Mabel 2004 Institute of HeartMath A Boy and His Dog (Heart Rhythms) Heart Rate (BPM) 250
