If you asked the same question, you probably would have shrugged their shoulders? How could still learn experiencing anything a newborn? Because the newborn – there are still dumb, tell us about it, he can not. But we know that newborn is a complete set of automatic reactions – the so-called unconditioned reflexes: put it on his tummy and he will turn head left or right: it's a protective reflex give him a leg to lean on the hand – he will move forward a little. This reflex is crawling. There are in this set is absolutely necessary and reflexes, which in contrast to previous cells do not die, for example, breathing. Included in this group and the first cry of a newborn – the most famous jerk. And yet, if we return to the question "whether the newborn is suffering?" Malosveduschy opponent will answer: the newborn can not see, not hear, does not understand, he has no consciousness.
There is no consciousness? Despite that, under these understand. He has no words – it's true. But is there is no language without words? If a person glotnet boiling water, if need be to him the words to express the pain? The child does not speak? Not true. That we do not hear it. Does not feel? Too true. He feels. All the pain of birth, and it is of immense intensity and richness of suffocating feeling. They will fly on the kid like an avalanche, like a flurry.
