Video showing a mom holding her premature baby for the first time has captivated people's hearts on Facebook. The Facebook page Love What Matters posted the video on February 16 and it has more than 6.8 million views already.
A caption with the video says a woman names Jessica gave birth to the baby 10 weeks premature. He "was quickly whisked away to the NICU to be evaluated," the caption reads.
"This is a video of the first time Jessica held her 10 week premature baby, Hugo. After being delivered by c-section he was quickly whisked away to the NICU to be evaluated. Jessica was only briefly able to see him as she needed to recover as well. It wasn't until almost 60 hours later that Jessica was finally able to hold her baby boy for the first time.I took this video hoping to catch a moment, never did I anticipate seeing the exact moment that she fell completely in love with him. The bond between Mother and Son immediately solidified. I hope that this video can show people that Love is the most important thing in anyone's life. Without it we will simply exist, when the goal is to live." Posted by Love What Matters on Tuesday, February 16, 2016
Then a few days later, hospital staff brought the baby to Jessica to hold. She gets very emotional and choked up as she holds and strokes her child for the first time.
Further details about the woman are not available on the Facebook post.
