When a newborn is just born, she has to look for her mother. Is there really any scientific basis for the so-called “mother child connection”?

For pregnant mothers, pregnancy in October is a very hard work, but when you hear the baby crying, all the hard feelings are due. We often hear the word “mother son heart to heart”, which fully reflects the inseparable psychological connection between mother and son. However, does this psychological connection really exist? Can the baby accurately feel the mother’s presence at birth?

not long ago, a group of Obstetrics and Gynecology photos caused heated discussion on the Internet, which happened after the mother gave birth to the child. The newborn baby was still bloodstained, and was held by the doctor. He stretched out his right hand in the direction of his mother, as if looking for his mother’s embrace.

many people were moved to see this group of photos, and they used “mother son heart to heart” to describe the scene. They believe that children know where their mothers are when they are born and want to find their mothers. This shows that there is a natural telepathy between parents and children. Even if the mother and son never meet, they can telepathically know each other’s position.

of course, the word “mother son heart” has existed since ancient times. Telepathy is a word with strong subjective color. In today’s advanced science and technology, the focus of medicine is on materialism. Is telepathy correct? Is there natural telepathy between mother and baby?

newborns have a sensitive sense of smell and can smell many odors that adults are not easy to smell. After living in his mother’s stomach for more than 10 months, he was very familiar with his mother’s smell.

so they can smell their mother immediately and know their mother’s general location according to the smell. Of course, as children grow up, their sense of smell will gradually degenerate to the level of adults, and they will not smell the mother’s smell.

during pregnancy, many pregnant mothers will find that the baby reacts to certain sounds and then moves in the mother’s body. Many pregnant mothers talk to their babies during pregnancy, and when the fetus reaches a certain age, their hearing develops to be able to hear the mother.

although they could not distinguish what their mother said, they recorded their mother’s tone and intonation. After the baby is born, when you hear the mother’s voice again, you can know where the mother is. It can record not only the mother’s voice, but also the heartbeat. In the mother’s arms, the child can hear the mother’s heartbeat, can know that it is a familiar voice, will have a sense of security.

after living in a small place for a long time before the baby is born, he will have a sense of security. When he was born, he would feel uncomfortable when he left the original living environment and wanted to return to the previous living environment. Therefore, when they smell the familiar smell and hear the familiar sound, they will struggle to return to the place with a sense of security.

the above is the way for newborns to distinguish their mothers. Some people ask why a newborn baby can’t find its mother with her eyes. In fact, in the fetal period, the development of vision is slower than that of other senses due to the dark living environment. After birth, the child’s eyes begin to develop, which also takes a process.

although the word “mother son heart” reflects the subjective concept, it has many objective realities. After the baby is born can distinguish the mother, to a certain extent, because the mother and son have long-term contact. After birth, the mother can be found from various details, which shows that the baby’s dependence on the mother is a kind of spiritual communication.

because of the dependence and security formed during pregnancy, babies naturally like to be close to their mothers. Even so, however, it cannot be said that such dependence is permanent. If the mother is irresponsible to the child, neglects the growth of the child and does not spend time with the child’s growth, even if the child is close to the mother after birth, it will gradually alienate the mother when he grows up.
