Can a baby feel her mother's emotions while in the womb?

Can a baby feel her mother's emotions while in the womb?

No way to tell...: There is no way to tell what a baby fetus feels regarding the mother's emotions. Even if doctors were able to confirm that a fetus's brain waves changed when the mother's emotions changed, nobody would be able to tell what the fetus actually felt emotionally, if anything.

When mother is a sleep the baby inside the womb is also sleeping?

Might be opposite: Oftentimes, the fetus is on the opposite schedule so, awake when mom is asleep and everything is calm for the baby and then asleep when mom is active and the baby is in essence being constantly rocked by movement.

If mother cry does it effect baby in the womb?

Not by itself:: Maternal stress can affect the baby by way of stress hormones and nutrition, but whether she cries or suffers silently, the effect on the baby is the same.

What happens to the baby in the womb of a mother who undergoes an emergency appendectomy?

What happens to the baby in the womb of a mother who undergoes an emergency appendectomy?

Usually just fine: Unless moms DX is delayed & her course complicated by systemic infection / intensive care etc. The baby should be fine. Baby is insulated from many of moms stresses. As long as blood and nutrient flow thru the placenta continues without interruption, it is just another day for baby. That said, success depends on the skill of the surgeon, OB & anesthesia team to keep baby safe.

When a baby is in its mother's womb, how do the lungs breathe?

When a baby is in its mother's womb, how do the lungs breathe?

They don't: The lungs never inflate in the womb. They are at rest & compact like a dry sponge before it absorbs water. At birth the baby gasps forcefully, filling the lungs with air & it begins doing the work of gaining oxygen. The placenta, which did the work before can be clamped.

For pregnant lady, is it normal if the baby inside a mother's womb, frequently kick mother's belly last few days but today there's no kicking at all at this has been happening for almost 2 days. Should I be worried?

Probably: Very early in pregnancy movements may vary. However, later on, especially in the third trimester movements should occur daily. In the last few weeks of pregnancy I recommend kick counts (6-10 movements the hour after you eat). In your case since I don't know her gestational age, have her call her OB today and see if some fetal monitoring is needed or nonstress test needed. Don't delay.

If mothet cry it will effect to baby in the womb?

No: The baby is well insulated from the outside world and little effected by short term effects like crying. However if the mother is so upset that she is not taking care of herself, for instance not eating properly or getting rest, that can certainly affect the baby.

Have studies been done on the effect of maternal stress on infants in the womb?

Have studies been done on the effect of maternal stress on infants in the womb?

MATERNAL STRESS: When mom is stress out, she neglects herself, forgetting to eat, worry a lot, depressed and causes the baby to feel it by not growing good. They sometimes come out as small for gestational age or mom will have premature delivery or other complications.

What will be the usual cause of the death of the fetus inside the mother's womb? Does carrying heavy things one of the reason of it?

Most: Most miscarriages occur for causes other than external factors. Medical, gynecological conditions, genetic factors account for most of the cases. Heavy weights lifting is limited mostly in high risk pregnancies. But is not a usual cause. Best wishes.

Did my environment cause me to be gay? Was it in my mothers womb? Genetics? How do I tell homophobic family? (I'm 19 in a tight-nit community)

Did my environment cause me to be gay? Was it in my mothers womb? Genetics? How do I tell homophobic family? (I'm 19 in a tight-nit community)

Always tough: There is no specific cause for homosexuality although genetics might play a role. It is not caused by parental misdirection nor any known ordinary influence of the environment in which you were raised. This trait is strong and not diminished by any known drug, psycho or physical treatment. The public feeling about homosexuality is becoming more tolerant - hopefullly your family can join.

Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy.?

Can a fetal doppler detect womb sounds, maternal heart beat, and umbilical cord (abdomen the size of a 26 week pregnancy) with a pseudo pregnancy.?

Fetal doppler...: ...Can detect any movement of blood in the body, but with a false pregnancy, all the doppler rhythms should be at the same rate as the woman's heartbeat. Fetal heartbeat tends to be much faster so if you find that, the pregnancy is probably real.

My mother had urine leaking. But with a month had blood in urine. Then in 3rd month, did a smear test clear, month she had womb cancer. Still shocked?

My mother had urine leaking. But with a month had blood in urine. Then in 3rd month, did a smear test clear, month she had womb cancer. Still shocked?

See specialist: Make sure she is seeing a gynecologist with experience treating uterine cancer. The urinary symptoms may be related if the cancer has spread and this is being investigated I am sure. Many women have urinary leaking usually related to infections, but it can be related to pelvic floor laxity, changes in bladder position, bulging of the bladder wall and neurologic problems. Usually not uterine ca.

When do babies begin to hear voices outside of the womb?

When do babies begin to hear voices outside of the womb?

From inside?: We know the basic structures are formed by 12 weeks, but are not sure when they can actually process the sounds like you do to consider it hearing. We know they respond with behavior changes when music is played and sent through the tummy. Babies also will recognize moms voice soon after birth. Since they don't remember back that far we can only speculate.

Is there a way for a woman whose womb was removed for medical reasons to have biological babies?

Is there a way for a woman whose womb was removed for medical reasons to have biological babies?

Takes $$/effort: If the woman's ovaries remain, these can be stimulated to make eggs. At the appropriate time these can be removed and placed in storage. The fathers sperm are added to create embryos which can then be placed in a a surrogate woman who carries the pregnancy.This requires a fertility center with the technical skill and local /national laws that permit the procedure. It is not always successful.
