Women Feel Fetal Kicks Years After Birth
study reported by Monash University suggests that many women feel fetal kicks
years after they had given birth to a child. The survey was conducted among 197
Australian women and in some cases such kicks persisted for 28 years. Most
women reported positive emotional feelings after such kicks but for some it was
painful as they got reminded of traumatic births or miscarriages. No
explanation has been found for such phantom fetal kicks but one possibility is
that a woman's brain could still be expecting those sensations to occur.
