Unborn Babies Learn Nursery Rhymes

Bradley Mattes   |   August 05, 2014

Did you know mothers can teach their unborn babies nursery rhymes in the womb?  Researchers from the University of Florida published a study in Infant Behavior and Development.  It told how they had mothers in their twenty-eighth week of pregnancy recite a nursery rhyme to their babies twice a day.  Researchers already knew the hearts of preborn children slow when they hear something familiar.  So later, researchers had strangers read the same nursery rhyme to the babies.  Even though the voice wasn’t recognizable, the nursery rhyme was and their hearts slowed down when they heard it.  Nothing happened when a different rhyme was read to them.  No surprise here.  My wife sang a song to each of our sons.  After they were born, the same song worked to calm them when crying.
