Baby’s Developing Senses in the Womb

Pregnancy is a wonderful experience. Your baby can hear, see, taste, and feel the intimate world. When soft music is played, endorphins are released, which helps the baby relax. The third month of your baby’s life in the womb is the period when his/her hearing is fully developed. When you are in your second trimester, you will begin to feel your baby’s reaction to some of the sounds. The reaction can be in the form of a poke or a kick, which means that the baby recognizes the particular sound or voice.

The baby can be startled by an extremely loud noise. Speak softly as this helps the baby to feel safe and secure in the womb that has been created exclusively for its well being. The unborn baby may be affected by the mother’s emotions. Babies can even see in the womb; when a mother steps into the sun, the baby can see red and orange shades in the bright light. The baby reacts to light by turning away or by moving towards it in the fourth month. The amniotic fluid also lets through a muffled noise, so the baby is listening to various sounds even in the womb.

What you can do for your baby

  • Your baby reacts as you react and eats when you eat, so make an effort to remain calm.
  • Think positive thoughts.
  • A peaceful mind is another way to remain calm and quiet.
  • Speak softly to your baby.
  • Stroke your belly as the unborn baby can feel every sound and especially the touch of the mother.
  • These small ways help you to bond with your unborn baby.
  • Help your husband bond with the baby, even before he/she is born.
  • When you move, try to move smoothly because any movement you make, especially a slow walk, can put your baby to sleep.
  • After the baby is born, the same rocking movement is used to put the baby to sleep.

Make it a habit to talk to your baby daily and have a positive approach towards pregnancy. Try to avoid stress and strain and have a happy pregnancy as this helps your baby to be healthy both physically and mentally.
