In brief: Tough Question
Several studies have shown that the fetus responds to music that is being played and heard in utero, and consciousness can be defined in several ways- spirituously, or physiologically.
That is an age old debate, however, what is definately known is that a child is truly "aware" at birth and its' first breath and cry.
