Is communicating with the baby effective during pregnancy?
The modern world makes many demands on a pregnant woman. She needs to constantly visit a doctor and take tests, prepare a dowry for the baby and study the theory of education and feeding, and all this together with the usual employment at work and at home. Often, a woman does not even have time to fully experience what is happening to her. Instead of joy from the anticipation of a miracle, she only feels tiredness and anxiety.
How will it be? Will I be able to become a good mother? Questions and anxiety increase every day. The inability to feel your position does not allow you to relax, feel the joy of what is happening. After the baby is born, these problems are exacerbated and can lead to postpartum depression.
Talking with the baby during pregnancy.
You can overcome difficulties, feel your baby and wake up maternal instinct by communicating with the baby during pregnancy.
Why is this so important?
According to the latest data, a 17-week-old fetus can already distinguish the sound of a human voice, and later – and respond to it with its movements. After childbirth, the baby will calm down faster after hearing a familiar voice.
Reading aloud or talking has a mild soothing effect on the pregnant woman, eliminates increased anxiety and helps to relax.
Communication with the baby normalizes the heart rate of the mother, and with it the baby inside the womb.
Singing during pregnancy lowers blood pressure and plays a role in the prevention of diseases of the upper and middle respiratory tract.
Communication baby with dad.
Talking with a baby during pregnancy can benefit your baby dad. The child hears a low male voice better than a female one, and reacts more actively. In addition, communication with the baby before birth strengthens the bond between the baby and its future parents, helping them prepare for parenthood. Regular joint communication creates a warm microclimate in the family and promotes closer relationships between spouses.
Methods of communication with the child.
Everyday conversation – has the least impact on the child, because it is heard from afar, without specific treatment.
Reading aloud – reading in a calm voice a book of any content (not necessarily children’s!) Reassures the baby and allows him to get used to the voices of his parents.
Singing is the most effective communication with the baby during pregnancy. In this case, we are talking about “singing with the heart”, and not about “singing for the stage”, as the cultural scientist Elena Yuryevna Grinchenko aptly put it. It doesn’t matter if you get into the notes, whether you have a hearing. The process of singing itself has a strong effect on the whole person as a whole.
