The National Academy of Sciences reinforces that babies in utero hear what their mom says, as well as different sounds and music, and their brains recognize these sounds after birth. According to research, expectant moms who coo and chat to their babies while they are pregnant may be doing more than stimulating the fetus (which results in more movement of the baby) – they may be shaping their child’s brain and helping them to adapt to life after birth.
