Being pregnant is the perfect time to start creating a connection with your unborn child. While you are pregnant, you are connected on a physical level through the umbilical cord. After the birth,the cord is cut creating two separate physical bodies.
Sound is an invisible yet powerful tool which you can use to connect directly with your baby. This can start when your baby hears your voice while in utero and continue right up until s/he is in your loving arms – without ever experiencing a feeling of separation. No one can cut the invisible sound cord that you create between you and your baby.
Your voice is the predominant sound your baby hears while they are in utero. They also hear your heart beating, blood flowing through the placenta and your stomach gurgling. According to sound researcher, Alfred Tomatis, your baby is aware of this “sonic world” four and a half months prior to birth. The sounds they prefer, according to Joshua Leeds in his book The Power of Sound, are high-pitched rather than low-pitched. This makes sense as it is the high-pitch of their mothers’ voices that they are most familiar with while in utero.
