How important is it for Daddy to talk to my baby in the womb?

According to “Life Before Birth,” the website for the Association for Prenatal and Perinatal Psychology and Health, your baby can hear your voice as early as the 16th week of pregnancy! Of course, since you’re carrying your baby for 9 months, he/she will recognize you right away when you “meet” for the first time. Isn’t it good to know that Daddy can also carry on a conversation with baby, too? We meet many fathers who speak right into Mommy’s belly throughout her pregnancy. Feel free to do the same! Your baby will respond to you more than you think. Oh, and don’t forget, your baby can also hear music. So turn up the Mozart, Manilow, or M.J. while you wait for your baby to arrive!
