Even before a baby is born, they start to tune in to their future earth-side home from the comfort of the inside world they live within. Their senses develop and become stimulated as they swirl around their watery home.
The sound of your heartbeat, peoples voices and other external noises become clear; the warmth of the fluids holding them or you massaging your belly; light sensitivity through the little eyelids. This connection between mother and baby is delicately formed into a strong, beautiful bond as you match your natural rhythms together over 9 months.
