Science has shown that unborn babies, 6 months into a pregnancy, can see, hear, experience, feel and even learn. Their physical and emotional health is shaped before they’re even born.
In Biology of Belief, Stanford researcher and cell biologist, Bruce Lipton, PhD, explains how thoughts “perceived by their mothers before birth” helps the unborn child to “optimize
their genetic and physiologic development.”
Signals within our environments are determining factors as to what our genes do. Lipton writes, “Genes are not destiny! environmental influences, including nutrition, stress and emotions, can modify those genes, without changing their basic blueprint. And those modifications, epigeneticists have discovered, can be passed on to future generations.”
Several studies show that there is some level of consciousness existing in the embryo soon after conception. As the fetus continues to develop, its subconscious holds and stores information. It’s important to note that the father’s role in relation to the mother also holds significant meaning.
By the 6th month in utero, the fetus is able to hear and move in response to its mother’s voice. So you can imagine the difference it makes if the voice is of a woman happily singing, or screaming in anger.
Because of this, it’s not very surprising to see sonograms taken while parents yell at each other show the entire body of the baby flinching in agitation. Can you imagine how much damage is caused by months of directly feeding this negative energy to a fetus? Studies have shown that children born to parents who were in bad relationships had an increased risk of psychological and physical damage by a startling 200% or more!
You must understand why it is important to communicate love and acceptance so you can prepare him/her for a life of confidence and ease.
Did you know, psychologists have recently confirmed, prenatal life, as well as the birth experience, are often considered major determinants of human personality and aptitude? Psychologists have linked qualities like self-confidence, depression, and addictive tendencies to experiences in utero. (Thomas Verny, Nurturing the Unborn Child)
Regardless of the situation, any parent can give their child a strong, healthy start. It begins with the choices they make during pregnancy.
“Pregnancy is not just something that is happening to you; it is a miraculous unfolding that you are co-creating. For nine months, you are your baby’s environment, and your baby is affected by each one
of your experiences.” Deepak Chopra, MD, Magical Beginnings, Enchanted Lives
