 Babypod Introduces Intravaginal Speaker System for Fetuses
A woman's capacity to influence her baby in utero is a point of discussion among scientists. Music is known to improve neurological development in the areas of communication and movement.

Babypod, a Spanish company, asks why not begin playing it for your little one as soon as possible? Women have long been advised to sing to their wombs, and there's even the possibility of pressing headphones against one's bump.

But this is not enough, says the company. The team at Babypod tried to find a way to improve the speaker to fetus relationship. They introduced an intravaginal speaker system for developing fetuses.

The team members believe that through the vagina sound experiences less attenuation before it reaches the fetal auditory system. Their concept isn't completely out of left field, as a recent analysis revealed that fetuses had increased facial response to music via transvaginal exposure when compared with transabdominal. Moreover, they saw response to music as early as 16 weeks of gestation.
