+Third Sunday after Easter+

The following was sent to me by my daughter, Aimee, mother of five and a fervent pro-life activist. Like me she loved being pregnant and always felt there was a special, mysterious symbiosis between mother and child that she could never quite explain. Finally, she found research that provided the perfect explanation for it, as expressed below.

“When pregnant, the cells of the baby migrate into the mothers bloodstream and then circle back into the baby, it’s called ‘fetal-maternal microchimerism.’⁠

“For 41 weeks, the cells circulate and merge backwards and forwards, and after the baby is born, many of these cells stay in the mother’s body, leaving a permanent imprint in the mothers tissues, bones, brain, and skin, and often stay there for decades.

“Every single child a mother has afterwards will leave a similar imprint on her body, too. Even if a pregnancy doesn’t go to full term or if you have an abortion, these cells still migrate into your bloodstream.

“Research has shown that if a mother’s heart is injured, fetal cells will rush to the site of the injury and change into different types of cells that specialize in mending the heart. The baby helps repair the mother, while the mother builds the baby.

“How cool is that? This is often why certain illnesses vanish while pregnant.

“It’s incredible how mothers bodies protect the baby at all costs, and the baby protects and rebuilds the mother back – so that the baby can develop safely and survive.

“Think about crazy cravings for a moment. What was the mother deficient in that the baby made them crave?

“Studies have also shown cells from a fetus in a mother’s brain 18 years after she gave birth. How amazing is that?”

If you’re a mom you know how you can intuitively feel your child even when they are not there… Well, now there is scientific proof that moms carry them for years and years even after they have given birth to them.”

I find this to be so very beautiful.
