Pregnant women were asked to watch the British version of All in the Family and laugh. Another group of pregnant women were ordered NOT to watch the show.
When all of the children were several months old, the show’s theme song was played and all of the babies showed alerting behavior to the music.
Amazingly enough, only the babies whose mothers watched the show and laughed also laughed when the music played. Babies are very capable of learning emotions and information in the womb.
Obviously, if they’re able to learn positive experiences, they’re also capable of learning negative ones.
Be aware that sensory messages such as sight and sound create teachable moments for your babies.
Chemical messages such as adrenaline and cortisol are released into your bloodstream during times of stress and can rewire your baby’s brain for anxiety.
Protect your baby now for a brighter future.
