Do you believe a preborn baby can feel his/her mother's emotions?

yes I think so I know they can hear so why wouldnt they feel emotions? My son would move around a lot and kick when I was stressed out

Did you talk to your baby before birth? I did. Especially when I was stressed out, I let my babies in the womb know everything would be ok.

I agree if babies can hear and feel when mom is hungry or even sick. And everything mom does effects baby why not their emotions.

I do believe this. I very strongly believe this. Just as a newborn baby, or an infant can pick up on mom's emotions. I was stressed and in an unsafe situation during my pregnancy, and my daughter's heart rate was much higher than it normally should have been, and also, at times when I was in a safe place, and not worried about things, her heart rate was normal. This is one reason why I believe this is true.

Yes, so you have physiologic proof that this is true!

Oh yes absolutly! On one hand when the mother is stressed her blood etc..is moving faster which would affect the baby. So he feels that on a physical level but I also believe they sense things on another level that is not as easy to explain. I felt I could communicate with my children while I was pregnant. I would talk and sing to them to calm them if I was upset.

I talked to my babies in the womb if I was upset also! I always wanted them to know that everything would be ok.

I believe that they can because when I was pregnant with both my son & daughter on days that I was happy they were more active and days that I was upset, depressed or mad they weren't very active, and the more I felt an emotion the less/more active they were.
