A new study has found that preborn babies in the first trimester have “adult-like” patterns of nerves.
The study, released on March 23, 2017, is titled: “Tridimensional Visualization and Analysis of Early Human Development,” and it claims that an “adult-like pattern of skin innervation is established before the end of the first trimester”
Today it has been proved that preborn babies can feel pain at 20 weeks and can respond to touch as early as eight weeks.
This link shows that babies in the womb feel pain as early as five weeks. Some evidence exists to show that fetal pain may be even worse in the first trimester. These findings goes against the common thought that children in their beginning stages are too small to feel pain.
