The process of birth is an important factor that determines the kind of a person one will be in the future and how we see the world. This study examines the psychological experiences of newborns from the intrauterine to the extrauterine world. The study used English–Turkish language papers and was conducted in PubMed, Scopus, Cochrane and Google Scholar, using a combination of key words like ‘transtation extrauterine world’, ‘newborn’, ‘newborn psychology’, ‘birth and newborn’. During birth, babies undergo a lot of stress. Foetuses and babies can react to signals from their environment. Newborns listen intently to their mothers and prefer to hear those heard weeks before birth. Infants are also great dreamers, according to studies of brain waves. The newborn trauma at birth affects adult life and plays a role in many psychiatric disorders. So delivery rooms should be quieter places with dim lighting and even soft music.
Keywords: Newborn, transtation, extrauterine, intrauterine life, psychology.
