Women Feel Fetal Kicks Years After Birth

Parent Interventions

An online 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.
