For some moms, transfer their own children is not an option, but Huggies is letting those moms quality the movements of their babies inside their surrogates with this groundbreaking mechanism. Sharde is a five-year cancer survivor and Antoinette is carrying her twin cosset girls, but she feels that she’s missing out on the mother-daughter connection of feeling her spoils kick and move inside of her.
“I did always imagine that I would be productive, you know, experiencing the kicks and morning sickness or the different food cravings, but that didn’t materialize,” Sharde said in the video.
But in honor of National Hugging Day on Jan. 21, the companionship strapped the “Hug Belt” onto Sharde and her surrogate so that she could feel her babies’ movements for the first time, and it is truly amazing. According to the Huggies website, the Hug Perimeter was first used on a group of dads on Father’s Day, and Sharde is the first mother powerless to carry her own child who has worn the belt.
