There are a surprising number of things that you can do to improve your baby’s development while they’re still in the womb. These can help with development in areas such as language development, memory, sight, and sensation.
Talk, Read, or Sing
After 32 weeks, your baby may actually be able to understand language to the point of recognizing certain vowels. Hearing your voice may help with both increasing their development and the connection between the two of you.
Use Pregnancy Apps
This can be a great way to track your progress and feel connected with your baby. It’s also a great way to help track milestones and know where they’re at developmentally.
Rub Your Belly
After 26 weeks, your baby can move in response to a rubbing a hand on your belly. This is also a great way for siblings to bond.
Find Ways to Relax
Don’t be afraid to take some extra time to relax and unwind. This can help you reflect on your pregnancy and reduce overall stress. Evidence shows that stress can actually lead to increased risk of health problems and even premature birth.
Write a Journal
There are an endless number of things you can write about in relation to your pregnancy. Not only is this a great way to document your pregnancy, but it also provides an opportunity for both bonding and reflection.
Having other family members talk to the baby can help them get used to their voices. This can also help family members feel closer to the baby.
Document Your Bump
This is a great way to get excited about your pregnancy and how far you’ve come! Sharing your progress on social media or creating an album can be a fun way to preserve the memories of this experience.
Respond to Your Baby’s Kicks
During the last trimester, you can softly touch or rub on your belly where your baby last kicked and sometimes, you’ll get a response! This can help create a special communication that will connect the two of you.
