Every child born in the United States undergoes a hearing test upon birth, as early detection is paramount.
In most cases, this is when auditory issues are first detected.
Even the smallest children can be fitted with hearing aids and cochlear implants, but it’s not every day we get to see the amazing impact they can have on the youngest of kids.
You’re about to meet Georgina, a 4-month-old baby girl from England. Georgina was diagnosed with severe deafness when she failed her newborn hearing test.
Recently, Georgina received her first set of hearing aids — and her mother made sure to videotape the tear-jerking moment when her daughter heard her voice for the first time ever.
“OK, so we’ve just turned your hearing on,” her mom says. “Can you say hello to everybody?”
And with that, baby Georgina makes the most adorable sounds when she realizes what’s going on. It’s no wonder the clip is going viral and inspiring countless people who suffer from hearing problems.
Dr. Maura Cosetti, director of the Cochlear Implant Center at Mount Sinai, told CBS news that “one of the best things about that video was how young the baby was.”
See the adorable moment below.
