Whilst we know that good pregnancy diet and de-stressing can help us and our baby when we are pregnant, many women become interested in the notion of encouraging a baby's development even before their child is born.
Some people read great literature or classical music to their bumps even they don't usually enjoy these things themselves!
Babyplus Prenatal Educational System
The Babyplus system works by playing sounds through a 'speaker' which can be placed by your bump. It plays a series of 16 naturally-derived sounds that resemble a mother's heartbeat. The rhythm of the sounds increases incrementally as the pregnancy progresses.
The idea is that the sound pattern introduces your child to a sequential learning process, built upon the rhythms of their own natural environment.
Although this field is relatively new, the theory is that this nurtures intellectual, developmental, creative, and emotional advantage from the time the child is born.
You play the sounds several times a day (the pack comes with instructions of how many times, depending on how far gone you are in your pregnancy.)
It is recommended that the system is used any time from 18 weeks of pregnancy onwards, and for a few weeks. However they have had women start to use it – with positive results – from as late as 34 weeks.
It is completely harmless and does not 'disturb' or distress your unborn child in any way.
If you want to try the system out you can rent Babyplus rather than buy it. You can do so via their website, for £19.95. You can buy it for £99.95 and there are other accessories you can buy too.
For more about how the system works, or to rent or buy, go to www.babyplus-education.co.uk.
