The Magical Properties of Hugs

View the story here

There are so many mysteries to life that I doubt we will ever truly understand them.  As a doula, I believe completely in the power of touch.  I’ve seen time and time again how a simple brush of the brow, holding a hand or stroking a back can be all a person needs during a tough time.  After reading this story of a mom who birthed a baby that was pronounced dead brought him back to life simply by holding him for two hours.  She didn’t intend to bring the baby back, but absolutely intended to shower the baby with love.  How beautiful that she was able to be with her baby for so long!  I wonder what would happen if we slowed down a bit in the States and paid less attention to the clock.  Happy Birthday, Jamie Ogg!
