A baby’s senses begin to develop in a predictable order, says Heidelise Als, an associate professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School. The first to come on board is touch. By eight weeks of pregnancy, a fetus responds to touch around their lips and cheeks, and by 11 weeks, they begin exploring their own body. Ultrasound scans show babies “touching their buttocks, holding onto the umbilical cord, turning and walking up and down the amniotic sac wall on the inside,” says Als. “They are not passively quiet in the womb.” Wouldn’t it be great if we could begin to understand what they are thinking or what they like?
WombWave is the solution. Imagine being able to see how a baby reacts to influences on its developing senses. Voice, Music and the foods mom eats and even smells. Using ultrasound technology connected to a mobile device with our unique software allows you to see how the unborn baby is reacting to sensory changes. Giving the ability to understand many preferences of the child before birth is a blessing.
