Beautiful Moment Mama Chimp Is Reunited With Newborn After 2 Days Apart

An animal reunites with her young after being separated for several days and immediately displays her intense and immense love for her baby.

Most parents can’t stand the thought of being away from their children. Any amount of time away from their baby feels like an eternity. This is especially true in the first days, weeks and months after the child’s birth. Mom and dad want to be on hand to witness everything. 

Apparently, as one video posted on YouTube shows, animals also have these strong maternal and paternal instincts. A chimpanzee shows how much she missed her newborn after being separated from her baby for two days. It’s a beautiful and moving moment that is likely to cause even the most stoic person to shed a tear or two.

The clip begins with the camera centered on the newborn chimp lying wrapped in blankets in the middle of the room. A few seconds into the video, the door on the right side of the frame swings open. 

The mother chimpanzee, carrying a blanket, enters the room. While she is a ball of energy as she walks into the room, she stops suddenly and stares silently, watching her baby.

Then, almost sensing that its mother was nearby, the baby awakens. Its little arm reaches up toward the ceiling. The baby obviously wants its mother.

The mother chimpanzee is not wasting another second. She immediately grabs her child, holding it tightly against her chest. It’s clear that this mother could not bear being away from her baby. 

As the mother chimpanzee lovingly embraces her young, others in the room have been moved to tears. 

Before the clip ends, one person says, through tears, “Good job, Mahale. What a good girl!”

The video’s description states that the mother and baby were momentarily separated because the newborn chimp experienced difficulties breathing after its birth. 

1 Corinthians 16:14 “Let all you do be done in love.”
