IF A PREGNANT WOMAN IS FRIGHTENED AND SHE TOUCHES A PART OF HER
BODY SHE WOULD GIVE THE CHILD A BIRTHMARK IN THAT SPOT. THE SHAPE
OF THE MARK WOULD RELATE TO WHATEVER CAUSED THE FEAR. MY
MOTHER-IN-LAW BELIEVED THAT THAT WAS WHY MY OLDEST DAUGHTER HAS A
WHEEL SHAPED BIRTHMARK ON THE BACK OF HER LEG. A WHEEL FELL OFF
OF OUR CAR WHEN I WAS PREGNANT AND SHE THINKS I MUST HAVE GRABED
MY LEG AND GIVEN CATHY THE BIRTHMARK.
