What is prenatal stimulation?

It is a technique that uses various stimuli such as sound music, mother’s voice vibrations, movements etc. to communicate with the baby in the womb.

The baby recognizes & responds to different stimuli, which encourages physical, mental & sensory development of the child in the womb.

What should I do during my pregnancy?

  • Experts have identified a critical period of 33months (9months of pregnancy+ the first 24months of the child) during which a specific part of the brain is open for stimulation, after which it closes forever.

  • During this period, infants crave for inputs as they have a biological need to learn.

  • Also 80% of the brain development is over before the child is 3years old.

  • Sharon Begley, after interviewing several neurobiologists, wrote, Pregnancy Care, Prenatal Stimulation, Prenatal Classes, Child Brain Development With the right input at the right time, almost anything is possible. But if you miss the critical period, you’re playing with a handicap. Pregnancy Care, Prenatal Stimulation, Prenatal Classes, Child Brain Development
