Make your unborn baby feel like a part of your life by communicating with him through your bump. You don’t have to wait for him to arrive in the world to start bonding with him. Follow any of these stimulating techniques:
Talk: Talk to you bump. Babies can recognize their parents voices when they are born. You can start sharing your feelings with your unborn childright away.
Play music: Your baby can hear by the 18th week of pregnancy. You can start signing lullabies or play soft music in your surroundings. This can have a very calming effect on the child.
Massage: You can connect with your baby by gently massaging your belly. And your baby will respond to your touch by kicking or changing his position.
Yoga: A prenatal yoga class will help you relax and meditate. It will give you time to visualize your baby – how you will hold him and how his touch will feel. Imagine what he will look like and what you will say to him.
Get an ultrasound: This is the best way to feel close to your baby as you can watch him move and grow inside you. Ask your doctor if you can take a picture of the ultrasound. Hang it where you can see it every day.
It’s never too early or too late to start communicating with your baby. So get talking to your growing belly today.
