Studies have shown that children who communicate with them even before they are born grow up more communicative and confident. They also begin to speak earlier than their peers, more easily learn foreign languages and demonstrate a higher IQ. How to communicate with the baby while he is still in the womb? We will tell you about 4 ways how this can be done for the benefit of ourselves and the baby.
Almost every pregnant woman talks with her unborn baby – this is the easiest way to maintain communication with him. Do not hesitate to communicate with the baby, drop thoughts that you are talking to yourself – the baby really hears everything, the mother’s voice remembers and calms down.
You can start talking already from the very conception. In this case, you will get used to talking with the baby, and this will become a natural process for you. Just keep in mind that in the first weeks vital systems of crumbs are born, so he still does not hear anything. But from the 8th week of intrauterine development, the child begins to respond to sounds and distinguish them.
Talking is beneficial when diverse. Therefore, the expectant mother needs to not only comment on something, but also read children’s poems, perhaps even tell some things in another language – according to scientists, even in the womb of the child the ability to learn foreign languages is laid. It would be nice if not only mom, but also dad, brothers and sisters, if any, communicate with the baby.
Pregnant women love to stroke their stomach, tickle it, gently push it in places where the baby is moving. It really needs to be done – verbal communication greatly helps to establish contact.
Movements can be diversified:
- Draw different shapes on your stomach with your finger and explain: “This is a flower, this is the sun, this is the house, and here you are, my dear, here are your eyes, nose and mouth.”
- Massage your stomach – only very gently, avoiding pain and discomfort. Then the peanut will definitely like it.
- Encourage your child’s dad, older children and other family members to chat with your child by touching your stomach.
Listening to classical music
Classical music is useful to all people. It increases stress resistance, strengthens nerves and even increases IQ by 8-9 units – for this you need to listen to Mozart or another composer for just 10 minutes every day. Scientists also proved that babies who listen to classics even before they are born are 4 times ahead of their peers in speech and mental development. In addition, so the child can learn to empathize with melodies, be sad under it and enjoy. He hears the baby well – at the 8th month of intrauterine development, his hearing is already the same as that of the future mother, except that the volume of sounds for him is 3 times less.
Depending on the situation, the baby needs to put different music:
- Vivaldi’s compositions calm the baby raging in the stomach and help put him to bed;
- the classics from Brahms and Bach are, on the contrary, capable of invigorating;
- Chopin’s music calms the child when something makes him nervous;
- Mozart’s melodies stimulate the development of intelligence and activate the activity of the brain.
There is also a way to chat with a child that our great-grandmothers used, to sing a little song, paying special attention to lullabies.
Singing has many advantages:
- In this way, the expectant mother shares with the child the emotions and feelings that she herself experiences during the performance of the song.
- Along with listening to classics, singing has a positive effect not only on the emotional, but also on the mental development of the crumbs. There is even a scientific explanation for this: music simply involves a large number of brain neurons.
- To a baby who has not yet been born, songs introduce him to musical creativity, developing his musical taste.
- The future mother has the opportunity to adjust the biological rhythm of the child: if you sing him a lullaby before bedtime, he will get used to fall asleep to this song. Now, by the way, there are different methods of singing for pregnant women – for example, “Sonatal”, proposed by Professor Lazarev. It is based on the fact that there are more than a thousand songs that a future mother needs to perform based on the time of day, mode, mood and behavior of the baby in the womb. As a result, the baby learns to understand that a slow song means “it’s time to relax,” a fast one means “eat,” etc.
- Singing benefits both the expectant mother – this is breathing training, and a great way to relax, and exercise for pain relief.
Thus, there are enough ways to communicate with the baby in the womb. They not only help to educate the unborn baby, but also give a chance to develop it intellectually and emotionally, instill in him the basics of the regime and establish contact.
