An Extravagant Way to spend $150: a vaginal player for moms of future geniusesBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/an-extravagant-way-to-spend-150-a-vaginal-player-for-moms-of-future-geniuses
Some pregnant women believe that if their unborn child is given classics, then he will certainly become a genius and be born with a musical ear. Demand creates supply, and as a result, Music In Baby has created a BabyPod device — a speaker that is inserted into the vagina so that the child can better hear the music.
A researcher from Spain, Marisa Lopez-Teijón (Marisa López-Teijón), tested the reaction of the unborn baby to music that was broadcast through a speaker attached to the abdomen or inserted into the vagina. It turned out that with the second method, the fetus reacted more actively.
For the layman, the study sounds more than strange, but it makes sense. Before that, it was believed that the fetus perceives sounds from the 26th week. However, when the sound source was inserted into the vagina, the subjects responded with movements of the face and body of the fetus from the 16th week.
The company's experiments have shown that this method of sound delivery is more effective and safer for all participants. As a result of the comparison, it was revealed that the sound supplied externally with headphones is equivalent to the power of a lawn mower (approx. 98 decibels) it did not cause any reactions in the fetus. While BabyPod sounds (54 decibels), which is equivalent to a muffled conversation, the baby, being in the womb, reacted.
The gadget is made of hypoallergenic medical silicone, it is easy to take care of — it is possible (and necessary) wash with warm water and mild soap. According to experts of the Marquez Institute, 100 babies who listened to Babypod in the womb have already been born and are absolutely healthy.
The creators of the device, which costs $ 150, claim that it can be used from the 16th week of pregnancy, it will almost certainly help the fetus to feel the genius of Mozart and Beethoven much better.
