Newborn twins separated at birth are only comfort by cuddling each other - this video is amazing

Weston and Caleb Lyman were screaming but, as soon as they were reunited, the newborns fall silent

October 28 2018

This is the heart-warming, beautiful moment when newborn twins show their incredible bond just minutes after their birth.  

Weston and Caleb Lyman were reunited after they were born four weeks premature and then separated by medical staff. They screamed so loudly after doctors separated them to assess their health for a few minutes, they were immediately brought back together.

Remarkably, as soon as they touched each others cheeks they were instantly calmed by each other's presence. 



This sweet reunion was caught on camera by their overwhelmed dad Dane Lyman.

"Immediately after delivery, I followed the boys to see how long they were and how much they weighed," Dane told NewsCenterMaine .

"That's when I got the footage. It was one of sweetest things to watch and I'm so glad I caught it on video."

The medicine student, of Orlando, Florida, added: "One of our greatest hopes, when we found out we were having twins, was that, as they grew, they would be good friends and support one another.

"Seeing them comfort each other just moments after birth was almost like the first step in that special relationship."
