Doctors, including myself, encourage new moms to talk to their baby a lot. The communication helps form a bond, develops the baby’s brain, and grows multiple language skills.
Now what if you were told to talk to your baby before the actual birth? Well, research is showing it could make a difference. A new study shows that unborn babies can hear and distinguish their mom’s voice while still in the womb. In fact they can recognize certain words.
This reinforces the importance of talking to babies and being aware of their environment even before birth. you can talk, share Bible verses, pray, or even sing as your pregnancy moves towards the big day.
You may be helping to develop your baby’s brain. Even better you’ll develop a greater love for your little one, and that will help both of your hearts.
