Whats Nurture?

Anything biological or chemical I think you'd have to call nature. Something like a mother putting headphones around her belly to play music for the fetus would definitely be nurture though.

It's both.I would love to see brain scans of a man each month as his baby is growing.I think you'd see changes in his brain preparing him for fatherhood...I wonder if its been done?

i think the most important things affecting the child's development after conception relate to how she treats her body during the pregnancy, so I would say its nurture.

Both I think, because the baby develops due to genes etc, but is also affected by what the mother puts into her body as substances can cross the placenta.

I believe it's both.

oops, I forgot to put on the rest of the post lol! I've read that when expecting fathers hold a blanket or something that sorta resembles a baby his estrogen levels go up or something like that.

Nature.
Not every mother wants to be a mother.

Nature. Nuture has to do with socialization and human contact. What goes on in the womb is completely seperated from that, although there are theories that prenatal development decides whether or not you are homosexual.

Nurture is part of nature.

Usually in the debate, nature has generally referred to innate genetic factors with nurture referring to influencing factors external to the individual. As such, I would consider the womb environment a factor of nurture, as it is not innately specified.

Fetal alcohol syndrome for example is a variable environmental factor, you'd get a different result from two genetically identical fetuses in chemically different environments in the womb.

I don't much care for the terms nature and nurture though. I think genetic as opposed to environmental (or non genetic even) is more appropriate personally.

I think it's both
