Fascinating facts about your growing baby:Antenatal facts and information

Hearing is the first sense that your baby develops. By 20 weeks gestation your baby is getting familiar with your voice.

As your partner touches your growing belly and talks to your baby the connections in your baby’s brain are being activated.

Baby is also in tune with your emotions from 38 weeks. Research has shown that when mothers are calmed by their favourite music, this calming experience is transferred to baby and they too associate calmness with this piece of music.

By looking after yourself during pregnancy you will optimise your baby’s health. See our Healthy You, Healthy Baby section for more information.
