According to Los Angeles-based obstetrician/gynecologist Lisa Masterson, moms who play music and sing to their unborn babies are helping the fetuses hearing develop, which may help them learn to talk more quickly once theyre born.
She says music ranging from pop to classical provokes positive responses from babies in utero.
However, Dr. Masterson says Spears may want to stick to ballads while shes pregnant because the slower pace of the music is easier to comprehend for a growing fetus.
Dallas-based singer/guitarist Rebecca Dixon says her experiences making music during her three pregnancies attest to the power of music in the womb.
She says her first son learned to talk early on and all of her kids recognized her voice as infants from the singing she did before they were born.
