 1、"Origins" is a report from the front lines of an exciting new field called fetal origins.
《起源》是一篇来自于称之为胎儿起源的新兴领域的最前线的报道。
2、 Fetal origins is a scientific discipline that emerged just about two decades ago, and it's based on the theory that our health and well-being throughout our lives is crucially affected by the nine months we spend in the womb.
胎儿起源,这个科学的学科早在20年前就已经出现了,它是根据这样一个理论:我们在子宫里面的9个月时间至关重要地影响着我们一生中的健康和幸福。
 3、Now this theory was of more than just intellectual interest to me. 
现在这个理论对于我而言不仅仅是知识上的兴趣。
4、I was myself pregnant while I was doing the research for the book.
当我研究这本书的时候我自己也怀孕了。
5、 And one of the most fascinating insights I took from this work is that we're all learning about the world even before we enter it.
同时从这个工作中我感受到了最令人着迷的领悟之一是我们甚至在没有进这个世界之前就已经正在了解着它了。
6、When we hold our babies for the first time, we might imagine that they're clean slates, unmarked by life, when in fact, they've already been shaped by us and by the particular world we live in. 
当我们第一次抱住我们的孩子的时候,我们应该会觉得他们就想一块干净的岩石,没有被生活所标记过,事实上,他们早就已经被我们和我们所处的特定的环境塑造了。
7、Today I want to share with you some of the amazing things that scientists are discovering about what fetuses learn while they're still in their mothers' bellies.
今天我想要和你们分享一些令人震惊的事情,那就是科学家们正在研究当胎儿还在妈妈的腹中学到了什么。
8、First of all, they learn the sound of their mothers' voices. 
首先,他们听到了他们母亲的声音。
9、Because sounds from the outside world have to travel through the mother's abdominal tissue and through the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus, the voices fetuses hear, starting around the fourth month of gestation, are muted and muffled. 
因为来自于外面世界的声音必须穿过母亲的腹部组织,通过包围这胎儿的羊水,胎儿从怀孕4个月就开始能听到微弱的、听不太清的声音。
10、One researcher says that they probably sound a lot like the voice of Charlie Brown's teacher in the old "Peanuts" cartoon. 
一个研究员说他们可能听起来有点像在老版的“花生先生”漫画中克莱尔 布朗的老师的声音。
