Pre-birth communication

Pre-Birth communication refers to possible communication with the foetus. Pre-Birth communication is described by one web site on the subject as follows:

What is Pre-Birth Communication? It's something that many people experience, yet very few talk about -- the sense that somehow we are in contact with a being who is not yet born! It may be a vivid dream, the touch of an invisible presence, a telepathic message announcing pregnancy, or many other types of encounter. It is a mystery, one that challenges our ideas about ourselves and our children. -Elisabeth Hallett

Those who believe in Pre-Birth communication may agree with Origen, a Christian scholar and theologian, and one of the most distinguished of the Fathers of the early Christian Church, who wrote that "The soul has neither beginning nor end… [They] come into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of their previous lives" (De Principiis). They would also likely believe in reincarnation, as Origen apparently did.

Or, they may believe that human life begins before birth, either at conception or upon implantation in the uterine wall. Ears and brain are both functional well before birth, so it is not unreasonable to think that a fetus may be able to feel vibrations, hear sounds, and remember them. Many pregnant mothers in later stages of pregnancy report their babies moving or kicking more actively when music is being played, apparently in response to the music.
