Just found out i am pregnant , does my baby learn something inside the womb or stay dumb?
Yes, your baby can learn 3 of the most important things while he/she is still inside your womb. Here are these three characteristics.
They Can Recognize Speech While Staying in Your Womb:
Newborn babies react to speech, said by Athena Vouloumanos, a psychologist from NewYork University, compared and studied newborn babies’ reaction to sound and speed and found that babies react to speech and pay attention if they hear their mother tongue.The research also help find another interesting concept, that some good acoustic surroundings are must for unborn and prematurely born babies as they might have speech disorders if they don’t hear human speech.
They can recognize sounds
Your baby can recognize sound which they hear while resting inside your womb. A group of scientists from Finland experimented where two groups of pregnant were taken under study. One group was asked to listen to lullabies daily while the other one was not at all. The result was that the babies from the first group reacted to the songs while the babies from second group were indifferent. The researchers concluded that the first group have learned the lullabies lyrics while in the womb
They can experience tastes
According to Professor Peter Hepper from Queen’s University in Belfast researched on, whether you can like food even when you are in your womb. He conducted a study on group of soon-to-be mothers either to cut out or ate garlic. Surprisingly, their children enjoyed the meals with garlic even at the age of 8-9 years.
The same went for another group: where mothers of drank carrot juice, their babies really liked it. Hepper says it’s probably, children experience the taste in the womb as their parents do.
