mother had just such eyes as the baby. The grandfather's were 

big, dark, flashing eyes, and the grandmother's the mild, 

blue-gray eyes. So 'bang!' went the theory of mental impression, 

and in its place came the physical law of reversion." 

 

I do not wish to be misunderstood as claiming that a mother's 

condition during pregnancy has no effect on the child, and that she 

need therefore take no precautions and pay no particular attention to 

her health and her feelings. This is not so. But what I do want to 

convey is this: That if a mother's health during pregnancy is bad, if 

she is a prey to worry and anxiety, if she was subjected to great 

fright or to a shock, then the child's general health may suffer. It 

may be stillborn, or the mother may have a miscarriage. But it will 

not produce those specific marks, deformities and monstrosities which 

are commonly supposed to be the results of maternal impressions. 

 

If I lay somewhat special stress upon the subject of maternal 

impressions, it is because I pity the poor mothers and want to spare 

them as much as possible unnecessary worry and anxiety. Besides I want 

them to believe in the truth and not in error.
