placenta at being "half made by the embryo, and half made by the 

mother." How does this co-operation and co-ordination of effort and 

subconscious will arise? How does the subconscious mentality of the 

embryo know that the subconscious mentality of the mother is making its 

half of the placenta, or vice versa? Again, how is the subconscious 

mentality of the mother affected by the presence and development of the 

child--how do her mammary glands respond to the growth and development 

of the child? In short, how is the manifest co-operation and 

co-ordination between the "nature" of the mother and the "nature" of the 

child possible, unless there exists some psychical, as well as some 

physical, relation between the two beings. 

 

The person conscientiously considering this subject must include in his 

thought the discoveries of modern psychology concerning what is known as 

the "subconscious mind," which controls the unconscious and instinctive 

functions of the physical body, and also receives impressions and 

suggestions from the surface consciousness of its owner. This factor 

being admitted to our thought on the subject, we may find it possible to 

accept the idea of material impressions from mother to child operating 

from the subconscious mind of the mother to that of the child. In other 

words, that there is a subconscious mental connection, as well as the 

physical connection, between the mother and her unborn child. 

 

Many careful thinkers (and observers) find it just as easy to accept the 

fact of this strange "sympathetic co-ordination" between a mother and 

her unborn child as it is to accept the very frequent "sympathetic 

sickness" of the husband during the pregnancy of his wife--or of the 

"sympathetic labor pains" so often experienced by the husband during the 

confinement of his wife. Both of the latter two cases occur too often to 

permit the phenomenon to be denied off hand by those who would set aside 

all facts not agreeing with their particular personal theories. There is 

no nervous system connecting husband and wife, and of such cases the 

critic like Dr. Saleeby might say: "Such a thing does not 

happen--UNLESS WE CALL IN TELEPATHY!" The fact remains that many things 

actually happen which according to the orthodox physiological theories 

"CANNOT happen." But they DO happen, nevertheless, whether we call it 

"telepathy" or merely label it "certain facts, the exact causes of which 

Science in the present state of its knowledge (or ignorance) cannot 

definitely determine." One irrefutable fact outweighs a ton of mere
