ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the report "Fetal Awareness - Review of Research and Recommendations for Practice," published by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) in Great Britain. He says that there was no evidence found to contest that fetuses lack awareness or in any other conscious state. However, he asserts that there has strong evidences for fetal behaviours including fetal motility, fetal sleep and wakefulness, and fetal memory.
