Words in the Womb

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? Research is showing it could make a difference.

A new study shows unborn babies can hear and distinguish their mom’s voice while in the womb, and may actually recognize certain words. While the research sheds light on how babies develop, it also 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 toward the big day. You may help 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.
