Just like you, we’ve been on a journey of discovery. How can we bond with our developing son or daughter? What is this new life actually capable of? How do we know what’s beneficial and healthy at which stages?
BellyBuds® was born when we followed our intuition to create a safe way to play prenatal music and sound to our own baby-to-be (read about the Birth of BellyBuds). We were curious, of course, what science had to say about it all, and did quite a bit of research along the way.
We weren’t surprised to learn that a large percentage of the research studies we encountered support what we suspected all along: sharing audio at the safe levels we created helps stimulate the baby’s development in positive ways, and helps create sound and voice recognition patterns, even before birth. That made us even more excited about sharing this technology with other parents-to-be.
We encourage you to look around on your own so that you, too, can make decisions for your developing baby that you feel good about. Below are some studies we found useful and also our Baby-Bump Blog is a great resource of relevant pregnancy articles.
Prenatal Music Exposure Induces Long-Term Neural Effects

A new study suggests that babies can learn a melody they hear while still in the womb, and recognize it after they are born.
