Would you like to know how to communicate in a balanced way with your desired baby, from the first weeks of gestation?
This is explained by the “coach” expert in couples and family, Raquel de Diego.
From conception in pregnancy, not only a living space is shared in the same body: the vibrations of your body, your diet, and your emotional state will also be an important part in the development of your pregnancy.
Start of life
When we measure the life of a person, we take as reference the day of his birth. However, we exist as an independent being from the moment of conception. Therefore, it is important to take into account the emotional needs of the mother and the baby, since the woman becomes pregnant. Several studies confirm the importance of the emotional state of the pregnant woman for the health of the fetus.
After 13 weeks, the future baby perceives the vibrations, and gurgling of his mother’s womb, as first sounds. And both your heartbeat and your mother’s beats will be your companions during the time you spend in the womb. The future baby listens to conversations and music from outside, with distorted sound, but more easily in the bass notes of the music and the consonants of the words.
During the last trimester, the fetus should prepare for life outside the uterus and perceive pain. As of week 26, he spends most of his time sleeping and, the remaining time remains alert to any external noise, or any threatening stimulus (showing the protective reflex, stretching and pulling his arms and legs apart).
The mother’s heart rate and blood pressure are directly related to her emotional state. If you are tense and stressed, the heart will increase your heartbeat and blood pressure will rise. Although the baby has its bloodstream, blood pressure quickly passes through the placenta and will affect the baby. The physiological effects of stress cross the placenta and, when the mother has calmed her heart rate, the baby’s will increase.
This symbiosis between the emotional state of the mother and her baby from the womb already suggests how to take care of the baby’s emotional health before birth, from the mother’s emotional care. You must ensure that this emotional state is as balanced as possible and avoid worrying excessively.
How to take care of emotions?
It would be healthy to relax , do activities that make the future mom feel good, surround herself with people who, likewise, convey affection and safety and, taking advantage that perhaps the ear is the most developed sense of the fetus, accompanying good communication are sounds, songs, music and all the messages you can think of.
Emotions, and even the thoughts of a mother, directly affect the “configuration” of the mind. It is important, at the same time, to take care of relationships with others, especially with the couple, since the communication style used daily with the couple, or with people within a special bond, will easily be a reflection of how communication can occur when facing upbringing.
