A Breakthrough in Learning
This patented, prenatal curriculum is designed to strengthen your baby's learning capabilities with naturally derived audio lessons. For your child, the developmental benefits of BabyPlus last a lifetime.
Parents who hope to give their prenatal child every intellectual, developmental, creative, and emotional enrichment will want to take a closer look at the BabyPlus Prenatal Education System. BabyPlus is a patented, prenatal curriculum developed to strengthen a child's long term learning capabilities. These naturally derived audio lessons are founded on the very language of the prenatal child, the language of the maternal heartbeat. As a baby distinguishes the simple rhythmic sound lessons of BabyPlus from those of the mother, auditory learning begins. As a mom's pregnancy progresses, so does the BabyPlus curriculum. The baby is introduced to a sequential learning process at a time during development when the advantages will be most enduring and significant. The developmental benefits of BabyPlus last a lifetime.

What are Professionals Saying?

"Baby Plus may have been the simplest, yet most important thing I did for Mary before she was born. From her quiet, calm alertness as a newborn to her, now happy, interactive personality as a toddler, I have been amazed at what a difference Baby Plus has made in the way she learns from everyone and everything around her."
Elizabeth Moore, M.D.
Pediatrician


"As a pediatric physical therapist, the developmental strengths of the BabyPlus children I've seen in my practice are very convincing. These children consistently demonstrate very strong fine and gross motor skills, early milestones, and long attention spans. Now, I too am a BabyPlus mother (of three) and I have seen countless additional benefits in my own children, most notably their strong learning skills and long-term memory, and adaptive dispositions. What a wonderful investment!"
Paula Ryan, PT
Pediatric Physical Therapist


"BabyPlus is a brilliant system. I have used it myself, will definitely use it again, and have only positive things to say about it in my book."
Sarah Brewer, M.D.

"I think that someday, the use of BabyPlus will be absolutely as common during pregnancy as is taking a prenatal vitamin today."
Karen Bell, R.N.
Registered Nurse, BabyPlus Mother of 3

"I just love your BabyPlus! I would recommend it to anyone! My son was alert and active from the time we began using your product at 18 weeks gestation. Gradually, he began to anticipate his "sessions" and would kick when it began. Since his birth he has been more alert than the average baby. He is now 16 months old and has more than 50 words in vocabulary, listens intently, watches lips and speaks 10-15 words in his father's native Italian! I credit half of this development to Babyplus!! He has benefited greatly from your product!"
Kati Corsi
Teacher

"An expectant mother provides for the physical growth of her developing child through conscientious lifestyle, diet, and the use of prenatal vitamins. BabyPlus offers similar enrichment by strengthening a child's learning capacity at the most critical period of development. I have seen the remarkable benefits myself."
Susan Morrow, Ph.D.
Molecular Biologist


What is Prenatal Learning?

Every mother knows that her child's physical development begins during the crucial prenatal months. Taking a prenatal vitamin to enrich a child's nutritional environment is the standard-of-care for providing an optimal environment during a child's earliest physical development.

It is widely accepted that a child's learning ability begins during those very same prenatal months. Educators, scientists, criminologists and physicians alike have long ago acknowledged the vital importance of a healthy and enriched prenatal environment as it pertains to the long term development and learning ability of a child. An age-appropriate prenatal curriculum strengthens a child's ability to learn during the developmental period when the advantages will be most significant for the child.

In the prenatal months, the brain is at its most receptive stage of learning. The prenatal baby's hearing is fully developed by the 18th week of pregnancy. Independent studies have demonstrated that, for the duration of the pregnancy, the baby can actually compare and contrast simple sounds. By encouraging this simple 'auditory exercise' during this crucial period, these studies have demonstrated that the child may realize significant long-term developmental benefits. Dr. Mark Pitzer, Ph.D. writes, "Research suggests that a child's intellectual development is influenced equally by their inherited genetic blueprint and the early immediate environment." This crucial early environment is not just the "0 to 3" years of age that we hear so much about, but actually the "prenatal to 3" years of age.

An expectant mother's uterus is not a 'soundproof booth'. The developing child can certainly hear many of the sounds and noises in his or her mother's external environment. However, these sounds are fairly fleeting. The one true and consistent sound presented to the child naturally during those months is the mother's heartbeat. For the duration of pregnancy, this is the natural language heard 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is a natural, simple, and repetitive sound. Therefore, in order to truly communicate with and encourage early comparative learning during the prenatal months, sounds similar to the mother's heartbeat are the most developmentally appropriate. For more information on prenatal education go to BabyPlus.


Can Prenatal Learning Aid in Bonding?

Bonding is the relationship that forms between a mother and her child that establishes the basis for an ongoing mutual attachment. Bonding implies that there has been interaction between them, each contributing to the relationship at some level.

The encouragement and practice of prenatal learning provides the mother with an opportunity each day to focus on her prenatal child. She can offer her prenatal baby auditory stimulation that she knows will help the baby's cognitive development. It is a loving, conscious effort on the part of the mother and it is satisfying to her maternal instinct to be able to do something so very beneficial for her baby.

As a mother observes the baby's movements in response to a prenatal curriculum, communication between the mother and baby has begun. The baby reacts with interest and curiosity to these new sounds which have entered its otherwise predictable environment. In brief, their interaction becomes an elementary form of learning, like playing a game (the same delight seen in infants playing peek-a-boo or pat-a-cake).

Parents who have engaged in prenatal learning with their babies report various responses. Typically, babies will become active during the sessions, kicking in rhythm with the simple sounds of BabyPlus. Other babies adjust their biologic clocks to begin arm or leg movements at the precise time a session is to start (even if the mother is late) if the mother turns on the BabyPlus unit at the same time each day. Still others who are normally active may cease activity during the sessions, as if they are concentrating on the sounds.

Naturally, while such bonding is most significant between the mother and the prenatal baby, others can share in this interpersonal exchange. Not only do they observe maternal happiness as an effect, they can place their hands or face against the mother's abdomen and feel what is going on. In this way the family can experience the beginning of interactive family communication. How a baby responds can actually provide a preview of future personality traits!


Does Playing Music Encourage Prenatal Learning?

Every prenatal child experiences the sonic environment of his or her mother: outside voices, traffic, television, radio, and CDs. The sounds generated by this outside stimuli pass through the abdominal wall, which lowers the volume by about 35 decibels and muffles the sounds. For the baby, it is much like listening to sounds underwater. Even though the baby is exposed to these sounds, they pass by him as white noise because they are too complex and the baby has no frame of reference for them as sounds.

Listening to music is a pleasurable experience, and certain types of classical music can have a calming effect on a pregnant mother. Since the prenatal baby can sense a mother's mood, the mother's emotional state can have a corresponding calming affect on the baby. However, music is not 'basic' enough to be the most effective prenatal curriculum.

The most dominant sound heard by the baby is the mother's pulsing heartbeat at 95 decibels. This sounds to the baby as loud as a rock band concert would sound to you. This heartbeat occurs naturally at about 1 beat per second. The baby's heartbeat is approximately 2 beats per second. As the baby develops and hears these two sounds repeatedly, they become imprinted in the baby's cognitive architecture. They become the permanent foundation upon which all learning will be built.

The most effective prenatal education curriculum is one that utilizes the main element of the baby's frame of reference, namely, the heartbeat. Research has shown that introducing a heartbeat sound at a lower decibel level (like the simple rhythms of BabyPlus at 65 decibels) encourages the prenatal baby to begin to differentiate between the two sounds. Click here to hear what your baby would hear inside the womb.

The next progression is to slowly increase the rate of the sound used in the curriculum. Following this, the curriculum can introduce a slight tonal change. All changes in the prenatal curriculum must be very slight to give the prenatal baby the means of discriminating between these similar sounds. In this pattern of staged progression, the baby begins to learn. Such sounds must be very simple and repetitive, something which neither speech nor music can accomplish as effectively. That is why nursery rhymes, tunes, reading aloud, and classical music are simply too complex during this early stage of development.


What are the Benefits of Prenatal Learning?

Parents and researchers alike have observed and measured the benefits associated with the BabyPlus Prenatal Education curriculum. Babies that have enjoyed this prenatal curriculum are born more relaxed and alert. Typically, their eyes and hands are open at birth. These infants are more responsive and interactive and are visibly ready to absorb and appreciate their environment. Parents report that these babies nurse more readily and self-soothe more easily.

Parents also report that, if their care giving skills are consistent, the regular sleep/wake cycle of their baby becomes quite consistent at an early age in the infant's life. There is also documented scientific evidence that the immune system of an infant who sleeps well and sleeps regularly is actually stronger. Additionally, an obvious side benefit of a well-rested baby is a well-rested parent!

Babies that have benefited from prenatal learning are reported to reach early childhood milestones, such as the ability to point to body parts on command, walk and talk, etc. ahead of their peers. Utilizing such milestone assays as the Clinical and Linguistic Auditory Milestone Scale (CLAMS test) and the Vineland Social Maturity Scale (school readiness test), these children have shown an increased attention span and measurably improved school readiness.

Parents have also reported that BabyPlus children exhibit greater creativity and independence. All of these traits result as a combination of both genetics and an enriching early environment. Strong thinking children are more successful in school and in life.

Prenatal learning does not create a "genius baby" anymore than a prenatal vitamin creates a "bodybuilder." The prenatal months of early development are simply the right time to strengthen the foundation for learning.

I highly recommend using the Babyplus if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant!

Like someone else reviewed we tried playing it for him one night hoping it would relax him and it did the opposite.

I found Baby Plus to be a wonderful product and I truly believe it benefited each of my children.

I borrowed this product from a friend of mine for my second pregnancy. My second baby was about on par with my first baby as far as early verbal skills, which is currently the ONLY proven sign of possible giftedness. I think that this product has a lot to do with the parents that are able to buy/gain access to it. Parents who have the money/are willing to spend the money on this sort of system are often the same parents who spend a great deal of time with their children. This is probably the main factor in determining early and later skills. Of course, I am not discouraging its use as it certainly can't hurt, but I think we need to give ourselves a bit more credit for being the fabulous mommies that we are!

All the advertising "information" was so convincing, we were very excited to try this product.
The sounds were intensely loud, and the baby started freaking out immediately. The baby has never responded so violently to anything prior or since.. and he is regularly around very loud, rythmic and vibrating noises, because I am a musician. He is surrounded by huge dramatic opera singing, full orchestras, percussion, all of that, all of the time.
Not only did the baby react violently, but his mood did not lesson for SEVERAL HOURS after, and I had to walk around slowly and sway and sing lightly, rubbing my belly for him to finally calm down.
It was a nightmare of an experience. Needless to say that we returned it after that.
The sound is like a giant heartbeat only it varies in rythmn.... which to me seems counter-intuitive because it is juxtaposed by the sound of your own heart beat at the same time. I can see why that would be totally chaotic and confusing to a baby, who is learning to connect moods and experiences with your heartbeat and breathing.
Save your money and buy some great classical music that you and baby can enjoy together out loud in your home. Brahms, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Beethoven, etc. . .

I used this product when pregnant with my now 5 year old son. He was a very alert and smart baby but he also would act out when he heard loud noises. I always wondered if I did wrong by using this product and I guess I was because now my son has been diagnosed with ADHD and sensory processing disorder.

I purchased the earlier version of this product two years ago. I was disappointed that I wasn't able to use it for my second pregnancy, most likely because it had been dropped too many times. This new version comes with a cloth pouch that makes it MUCH MORE user friendly. Also, one set of batteries (4 AA) lasted for 4-1/2 weeks. The batteries in my old one would last 5 days IF I was lucky. My daughter just turned two in January 06 and is extremely smart, verbally advanced and a joy to be around. By 16 months she knew all of her colors and could recite the ABC's. By 18 months she could recognize all of the letters. I believe we are well on our way to having a reading child by the age of 3. Do I credit the Baby Plus? Who really knows but we decided not to chance it and are using it again for baby #2.

I first heard about BabyPlus through an article in a 2004 issue of "Parenting Magazine" as I sat waiting for one of my first prenatal visits with my midwife. I was a newly first time pregnant woman that was bombarded with advice, magazines, online articles, books, do's and don'ts of being pregnant. After reading the article I was hooked. I didn't want fancy diaper bags, strollers and maternity clothes, I wanted to spend money on something that would last my unborn child's life a LIFETIME! I used my BabyPlus as instructed from 18 weeks until my daughter was born 1 day from her due date and amazed with it's impact on my daughter's life that I used it with my subsequent 2 pregnancies until their births. I wore BabyPlus under my clothes at work, in a shared office. With the hustle and bustle of office life the low tone beats were drowned out and would forget I even at it on as I would get up to walk out of the room wearing it. All 3 of my children have very different personalities, as any two people are different, however, I fully believe that BabyPlus helped all three of my children become more aware of their surroundings and interested in life, learning and thriving in everyday tasks or exploring their own and I have been told on more than one occasion how smart and much more mature for their age. Just a few highlights from each of my children are that my first daughter (2004) slept through the night from 8 weeks on as a breast fed baby, my middle daughter (2006) started speaking in two word sentences by 8 1/2 months and my youngest son (2008) has hit all his milestone MONTHS and in some instances up to a year before his should be doing activities and comprehending actions. All 3 walked and even ran before their 9th month! I can't speak more highly of this product, and couldn't imagine being pregnant and NOT using this product.

Our daughter is turning 2 years old this week and I felt it time to finally write a review of this amazing product. From the very beginning, she has been an incredibly alert and interested baby. She was born c-section at 38 weeks with eyes and hands wide open. Once they were finished cleaning her up, my husband and I were thrilled to just cuddle her and talk to her while she looked at us both with wide eyes and made little coo coo sounds. Right away she was great at nursing with a very good latch. She rarely ever cried, and when she did, it was a quiet little "lay lay lay" sound, not the wild Waa-waa's.

Throughout infancy she was always capable of adapting to every situation quickly and without emotional outburst. Where it would seem other children would be over-stimulated in an environment, she would thrive and seem to want more stimulation! At only three months of age, people thought she was older because of her alertness and interest in people and animals. She hit every developmental milestone months early, especially in language (sign and speech), music appreciation, and colors/shape/letter/number recognition. Her pediatrician has been happily surprised by her and suggested that I should have five more just like her!

When we bought the BabyPlus, we thought, "if it helps only 10% as well as the testimonials say it does, it will be worth it". We're certain it has contributed positively in helping develop this little miracle of ours. We're now expecting child #2 (25 weeks along) and although not using the Baby Plus could be an interesting experiment (same gene pool, same parenting, etc.), we're too interested in the possibilities of how much it may contribute to our next child for us to withhold it.
