Heartbeats Of A Mother And Unborn Fetus Synchronize, Researchers Say.
BBC News (7/20) reported that "the heartbeats of a mother and her unborn foetus synchronise when she breathes rhythmically, researchers have said." The researchers "claim the connection paves the way for a new technique to detect development problems during pregnancy." The scientists "said if this synchronisation did not happen, it could signal something might be wrong."
