Baby's needs before birth

When you are pregnant, there is lots you can do to support your child’s development. You can even start the bonding process before your baby is born, by massaging your tummy, and even talking and singing to your bump. Your baby will start to recognise the patterns of your voice which can create a calming effect after your baby is born.
