Facts about unborn babies and their development have been known for many years. From a medical textbook from 1945:

“Our own repeated observation of a large group of fetal infants. . . left us with no doubt that psychologically they were individuals. Just as no two looked alike, so no two behaved precisely alike. . . . These were genuine individual differences, already prophetic of the diversity which distinguishes the human family.”

Arnold Gesell, The Embryology of Behavior (1945), cited by Heffernan, “Early Biography of Everyman,” pp. 17, 18.
