The influence of music on the forming baby!

Prenatal Babies, Infants and Music


“What is the human body, but a constellation of the same powers that formed the stars in the sky.” Paracelsus – ancient Greek philosopher

Ancient and modern wisdom suggests that music listened to by a prenatal baby is influential in the positive development of the child.  

A little smattering of research on the impact of music on babies is listed below:

·       "Mozart and Vivaldi cause fetus' heart rates to stabilize, whereas rock music drove fetuses to distraction and they kicked violently."  Thomas Verny

·       Music learning begins in utero. Peter Hepper of Queens University in Belfast found that 2 weeks before birth fetuses recognize differences in songs/sounds.

·       Dr. Tomatis from France used the sound of the mother's voice that a person heard in utero to reprogram, ground and comfort people.

·       Mothers sing better when their infant is present - 1999 study by Laura Lee and William Thompson, York University at Toronto.

·       Sandra Trehub of University of Toronto found that babies as young as 6 months prefer consonance to dissonance.

·       Various experiments have shown that plants exposed to classical music all day, thrive and grow well. On the other hand, plants exposed to heavy metal music all day shriveled up. Heavy metal music had a very definite negative impact on plants. Although this doesn't mean that it will have the same negative effect on your baby, heavy metal music is not soothing, either for the mother or for the baby, and as such, it will certainly have no positive impact on your child. 

Sounds interact with us on all levels. Of course they interact with a growing baby, within the mother's womb. What the mother listens to makes a difference!

Ancient wisdom speaks to the powers of music on the prenatal infant. They recommended that music in the key of D flat major (relating to the signature tones of Aries), E flat major (Taurus) and F sharp major (Gemini) are heard during the first three months of pregnancy. During the fourth month the incoming life develops best listening to the keynote of G sharp major (Cancer). In the fifth and sixth months the Love and Wisdom principles (A sharp major - Leo; and C major - Virgo) are woven into the soul. The seventh month is crucial for the incarnating spirit, Libra music written in the key of D major is best listened to. The songs of Scorpio, music written in E sharp Major is most influential. The music in the key of F major (Sagittarius) supports the baby in the ninth month.  The first three months of birth come under the ruler ship of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, respectively.
