The reason why mothers are more emotionally attached to their young ones is that they are the people who go through the pain of birth. In addition to that, a woman takes care of her child even before he or she is born. During pregnancy, a woman must be vigilant and watch what she eats. Her body expands, and the transformation leaves visible signs in the form of stretch marks and sagging skin. Mothers also share their body nutrients with the fetus, which often leaves them feeling lethargic. The list of the struggles of a pregnant woman goes on and on.
According to research conducted by the American Pregnancy Association, the fetus starts to hear outside noises by the 18th week of pregnancy and at around the 24th week, they become more sensitive towards sounds. As a mother, one should refrain from swearing and shelter one’s self from vulgar things. That includes TV shows and movies too.
