Is your womb talking to you?

How to make pre-birth mates > There are grey areas between NHS approved complementary and alternative therapies. Past-life regression therapy is one example.

As far as Tonic is concerned, we have enough trouble dealing with current lives without pretending we can solve those in previous incarnations.

But instead of looking back, how about looking forward? If you believe what is in this week’s Press, you can now use hypnosis to communicate with your child-to-be while in womb and thus make him/her more intelligent.

Womb talk for intelligence

In one case the parents said as their unborn baby was obviously pre-linguistic, they communicated non-verbally using a pendulum as a bio feedback device. The mum explained that mothers intuitively know how to communicate with the babies in their womb. Examples are when they eats a certain food their babies get excited, or if they are sick or emotionally drained their babies will not move.

It is therefore argued (dubiously) that the baby-to-be can be asked questions using a pendulum to pick up their response through micro muscle movements in the mother’s body. The person holding the pendulum identifies the babies responses and makes the communication visible through the sway of the pendulum.

Regression therapy is so ‘yesterday’

With no touch of irony, the therapist in this case said, ‘This is a very unique and powerful form of intelligence that can be learned.’ As a result of this pendulum conversation, the parents say they were able to understand what their unborn baby’s likes and dislikes.

They continued this rapport after birth while their baby slept.  As a result they believe their child grows up well-rounded, engaging and confident.

As with womb regression therapy there is zero science backing up these beliefs. However womb communication seems harmless fun.  A great baby shower party game, but please leave out the word ‘therapy’

    Pure nonsense.But as you say, fun nonsense. If you want to believe in pre-birth comms then all well and good, but full marks Tonic for pocking fun at those who take it too seriously.

      So what’s so wrong in talking to your unborn baby? Who are you offending! The womb is a sensory environment. The first senses to develop is your unborn baby’s sense of hearing so take advantage of it. In fact, research shows that by 25 weeks unborn babies blink in response to sound. To begin with, your baby will hear only low pitched sounds; then between after 29-weeks a baby will hear sounds outside of your womb.Make sure that is your voice.

    I think you are missing a trick here as there iS plenty of research showing that playing music and reading out loud when you are pregnant enhances your unborn babies brain. Even if you doubt this, consider how babies in the womb receive stimuli from the outside world, including tastes and sounds.These are all forms of communication, whether intentional or not. In my opinion, conscious communication with your unborn baby can help you bond before the birth so please do not mock

  3. Sam (Wisbech) says:

    Not sure about the pendulum or hypnosis, but research shows that unborn babies can remember what they hear, laying the foundations for language development. Listening to mum’s voice while in the womb relaxes and lowers the heart rate for both. Such pre-birth communications lays the foundations for bonding and early language development. It is also worth noting that unborn babies respond positively to word patterns, like nursery rhymes, that they can remember hearing before.

  4. T.M. (Client 88) says:

    Prof Hepper of the School of Psychology (Belfast’s Queen’s University) has studied prenatal learning. He found that babies whose mothers had regularly watched a television soap opera during pregnancy responded to the musical theme after they were born. Rather scary if you think about it -maybe you get addicted to Eastenders even before you are born.Help!
