      Discover what babies hear in the womb

      Talking to your bump encourages you to bond with your baby in pregnancy, but when should you start? Why is it important? And what exactly can your baby hear? We asked our panel of experts, including a neuroscientist and a speech therapist, as well as mums and mums-to-be, for their thoughts about building this early mother–child relationship and creating an ‘auditory home’.
