This vaginal speaker allows you to play tunes to your unborn baby
Babypod directly plays music to the foetus, thus stimulating its development
You may have had people, specially elders, tell you that if you speak to your baby bump, you will be able to feel your baby responding to you. Research also suggests that the music mums listen to during pregnancy has a positive impact on foetuses and this includes a well-developed auditory system. Well, now instead of the mum listening to the music, the unborn baby can directly listen to it, thanks to a rather unique invention.
Spanish company Babypod has designed a speaker that can be inserted into the vagina. This way, the music directly reaches the foetus, thus stimulating its development.
A blurb on the company’s website reads, "Babies learn to speak in response to sound stimuli, especially melodic sound.” It further says, "Babypod is a device that stimulates before birth through music. With Babypod, babies learn to vocalize from the womb.”
As Babypod is an intravaginal device, the baby can perceive the sound clearly. This is not the case when the mother listens to music as the sound gets dispersed in the environment. What the baby may hear is just a muffled sound or a murmur.
The basis of this device is that hearing is one of the first senses that foetuses develop and they respond to musical stimuli.
The company’s website says that the device is safe and the vibrating sound waves do not have any negative impact on the baby.
