Growth and development are generally the only factors that individuals think about when it comes to the life of their unborn child. However, studying psychology provides a much clearer image of just how these developments are occurring. It is believed that consciousness, our personality, drives and ambitions, are all developed in the months between conception and birth. Taking a scientific approach, we are able to see that from conception we are remembering, feeling, and aware beings that have personalities and traits that will  continue to develop into adulthood. Women help shape the lives of their unborn children by events that happen to them while pregnant.  Her thoughts and feelings during pregnancy also play a major role. Communication between mother and child during these critical months is essential  How your child behaves cannot be predicted with absolutely certainty, however mothers that support the emotional and intellectual needs of their unborn, tend to have mentally healthy and happy children. A father’s role  is also essential to the health and wellbeing of the child. Bonding early will help parents have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with their children from the beginning.
