You may have heard that listening to Mozart and Bach while pregnant can help your baby become smarter. While there is no scientific evidence to prove this, there are still plenty of reasons why listening to music while pregnant is a great idea. Here are a few reasons for you to consider.
1) It’s a great way to connect with your baby.
Taking the time to sit and listen to a great piece of music gives you the time to think about your baby and to do something together. It’s a way to bond, and for you to try to see what she or he likes or doesn’t like. Perhaps a certain song might lead to the perfect choice for a name.
2) It can help to reduce stress.
Pregnancy can be a stressful time. There is so much to think about, plan for, worry about and more. Taking the time to sit back and relax with some music can really be the moment of zen that you need to reduce all the stress hormones. Or, get up and dance with your baby! Dancing is also a great way to relieve stress and will also let you have fun with your baby.
3) It may help with your child’s hearing.
According to Medical Daily (October 30, 2013), listening to music while pregnant might have a positive impact on your baby’s hearing. Studies have found that babies who listen to music in utero have more developed auditory systems. The parts of the brain that tackle math and spatial intelligence were also found to be more developed than babies who were only exposed to the noises of a typical work environment. It might be time to grab the headphones and put your feet up.
