Sometimes a photo is worth a thousand words; sometimes a video is worth even more than that.
A newborn baby in Brazil clung to her mother’s face right after being born by C-section — and the video released on People‘s Instagram page is utterly remarkable.
Brenda Coelho de Souza gave birth to her daughter — named Agata Ribeiro Coelho — on April 5 at the Santa Monica Hospital in Brazil. Her daughter was placed next to her, and that’s when baby Agata reached onto her mother’s face, holding on tightly. Squeeee.
This amazing, pure mama-child love is astonishing people worldwide. No wonder — it’s one of the most beautiful moments we’ve ever seen.
According to the Daily Mail, Coelho de Souza said of the meeting, “It was an incredible moment when my daughter hugged me for the first time…The medical team were great and were all really surprised that she acted this way, they couldn’t believe how affectionate she was with me.”
Agata is 3 months old now and her mama couldn’t adore her more. “I adore being a mom,” Coelho de Souza told the Daily Mail.
We adore them both.
