Female werewolves and pregnancy
« on: February 05, 2009, 07:44:42 pm »
If a female werewolf is pregnant knowing she can shift at any time, can she have the baby or will it die?

um... I... don't think it would affect the fetus... a fetus is a fetus is a fetus, and a womb is a womb.  Though, a shift is not something that would really do much to hurt a fetus...
If you're talking about fictional ones which transform into bloodthirsty wolf-like monsters under the full moon, I would say no for the same reason.

Actually, I could probably argue both sides. I highly doubt the fetus would shift with the woman, which means that, if there is excessive movement of organs and bone structure, the fetus could possibly be injured or killed. On the other hand, female werewolves have been bearing children for quite a long time--their bodies must be somehow equipped to protect the fetus; either that, or they simply do not shift while they are carrying the fetus. It would also depend on the extent of the physical changes during the shift.

I apologize; I really can't give a definitive answer.

I apologize for seeming completely insensitive. I suppose I could try that sometimes.  :doh:

As I said, I don't think it would.  A womb is a womb, and even if you could physically turn half wolf, I don't see why it would hurt the fetus.  Real Life shifting, not at all, because the fetus should be fine with the occasional chemical charge that a shift causes in the blood stream.

you don't shift physically so i guess the baby's unharmed,  unless of course, the mom does something so terrible during her shift that it somehow affects the baby IRL.

In books and movies the fetus dies, always. That may not be the case. A wolfs womb is different from a humans, and a physical shift means the womb would change and my guess would be that the placenta would come detachted essentially killing the fetus. The human pelvis is designed for a human baby a wolfs is not. If there is a physical transformation, the amount of aldrenaline it would take could possibly burst the babies heart(speaking that its formed) which is already pumping at full capacity, at least for the few weeks, i don't really remember how long it flies as fast as it can. But a huge aldrenaline rush, like the one to shift, would cause an overdrive and once again killing it.

An infant would be expected to shift with its mother. Though most 'weres' do not come into their creature until puberty. I don't think the rule changes for unborns.

i think that applies if we are talking about fictional werewolves here. we are talking about the fictional ones here, right?

redeyes asked if a female werewolf could shift, would the baby die. More than likely yes it would. of course there is very little proof of an actual transformation, and those that can do it...Usually forget what to get proof when they shift. for obvious reasons
