Unborn Babies Pack a Punch

Bradley Mattes   |   February 07, 2018

A new study from the UK says unborn babies can pack a punch with their kicks in the womb.  They can have ten pounds of force behind them.  I’ll bet millions of mothers disagree.  They’re probably responding, “only ten pounds?”  The study published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface says researchers matched MRI technology with three-dimensional models of the unborn baby’s skeleton.  The power of their kicks increases considerably between twenty and thirty weeks.  As the growing babies get bigger and their environment grows tighter, the power behind those kicks diminishes too.  But I vividly remember my wife’s discomfort when the babies would get a foothold under one of her ribs.  I love the way this study further humanizes precious babies in the womb.
