In the article “Fetal Psychology” in Psychology Today, a researcher explains how the birth process is only a minor event in the life history of an individual, as no new brain development occurs in the baby as he or she travels down the birth canal.
Birth may be a grand occasion, says the Johns Hopkins University psychologist [Janet DiPietro], but “it is a trivial event in development. Nothing neurologically interesting happens.”
