I think it’s pretty well understood science that you’re supposed to talk to your unborn baby, play music for the baby, it’s good for prenatal development and has shown to impact development later in life. Still, I don’t know if this is what they had in mind…
The makers of Babypod say that just playing music outside of the body isn’t going to cut it. That’s why the developed a device a that’ll do you one better, getting that music inside the body, right up there next to the unborn babies little underdeveloped ears.
Yup, it’s an intervaginal earbud, AKA vagbud, for your little baby…
Just tuck that bad boy right up there, press play, and then you sit and wait for your baby to come out of the womb singing Dave Matthews songs and strumming a little baby acoustic guitar. It’s fucking science.
For the first time ever we know that a fetus is able to detect sounds starting at week 16, and that external sounds are perceived as distorted whispers. We have discovered how to allow your baby to hear like us, in such a way that they will perceive sound effectively in terms of intensity, and free from distortions.
Ultrasound, the journal of the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS), has published the study entitled Fetal Facial Expression in Response to Intravaginally Transmitted Music, an innovative research project on fetal hearing. This report explains that, beginning in week 16 of pregnancy, a response exists to music delivered intravaginally, expressed through specific movements of the mouth and tongue.
Our initial hypothesis suggests that music creates a response which manifests as vocalisation movements, as it activates the brain circuits that stimulate language and communication. In other words, learning begins in utero.
