The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System is a series of sixteen sounds that resemble a mother’s heartbeat that you play for your baby every day. The rhythm of these sounds increase incrementally as your pregnancy progresses. The BabyPlus pattern introduces your baby to a sequential learning process, building upon the natural rhythms of the baby’s own environment. According to BabyPlus’ website, these auditory exercises strengthen learning ability during the developmental period when these advantages will be the most significant and enduring. This article will provide you with a review of the BabyPlus Prenatal Education System.
How It Works. The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System was developed by Dr. Brent Logan, a developmental psychologist. BabyPlus, according to their website, is based on more than twenty-five years of scientific research. They state that scientifically conducted studies have shown that the prenatal baby recognizes the maternal heartbeat and can learn to differentiate more rhythmic patterns of that sound. The theory behind using this education system is that the brain is at its most receptive stage of learning during the prenatal period, and that a child’s long term learning capacities are improved by enriching their prenatal auditory environment.
How to Use It. BabyPlus recommends you begin using the education system between the 18th and 32nd week of pregnancy, twice a day, for one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon or evening. You place the unit inside the pouch, with the speaker pointed inward, and place the unit on your belly, fastening the strap around your waist. The volume is preset. The system comes with the microchip unit, a cotton pouch for the unit, a stretchable and adjustable strap to wrap around your belly, and an instruction manual and lesson calendar. Four AA batteries are required (not included).
Results. While it is difficult to measure how well this product works (who can say what is really responsible for how calm, smart or alert your baby is), I was hard pressed to find a negative review of this product. Reviewers in all seem to find this product very beneficial (four out of five stars on Amazon.com) with the word “amazing” being repeated quite a bit. It’s easy to use, most people found the sounds soothing, and babies really seemed to respond to the sounds.
Where to Buy. You can purchase this system for about $159.99. from www.babyplus.com, www.amazon.com, www.digizon.net , www.healthchecksystems.com , and other on-line stores. I hope you found this information helpful. The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System might be the most valuable start you can give your child and the benefits will last a lifetime!
