CARRYING MOTHERS AND SMOKING

‘PASSIVE SMOKING DANGEROUS FOR FOETUS’
Exposure to second hand smoking during pregnancy can be just as detrimental to a developing foetus as primary exposure through maternal smoking.Both active maternal smoking and secondary mternal exposure results in similarly increased rates of genetic mutation that are basically indistinguishable..

NO STRANGERS’ VOICE
A developing foetus begins to hear at about 30 weeks and as the delivery date approaches a foetus begins to distinguish its mothers’voice from that of a stranger.
2 groups of 3 each pregnant womens’ foetal heart rates were measured before,during and after a prerecorded 2 minute poem was played thru a speaker held above the mothers abdomen.Heartbeat increased about five beats a minute in 21 of 30 foetus who heard recordings of their mothers voice.It slowed down to 4 per miniute in 21 of 30 foetus who heard recordings of strangers voice.There is some sort of representation that the foetus is matching with the sound,
