Is it possible for my baby to get shaken baby syndrome while in womb? During pregnancy? People tend to shake my belly to try to get my baby to move

In brief: Unlikely

Shaken baby syndrome occurs when significant forces are applied to a baby after birth.
Your body's uterus and fluids are quite effective for prevention of most traumatic injuries to your unborn baby. Best wishes
