As recently as 25 years ago, we thought unborn babies were unaware of anything outside the womb. Since then, though, science has gained a better understanding of your unborn baby’s secret world. That secret place inside where your unborn baby resides is not a deep, dark cave where they are hidden away, awaiting birth. Far from it. Your womb is their classroom, where there begins a lifetime of learning, sampling, accepting, and rejecting—in short, the process of growing that will continue throughout life, from conception on.
