Playing Music While Pregnant Can Help Develop Unborn Child's Hearing

Scientific study suggests that playing music while pregnant can help develop an unborn child's hearing.

The prodigy of the “Mozart effect” was first propounded by a scientific study in the valued journal, Science, in 1993.

The study revealed that teenagers who listened to Mozart's 1781 Sonata for Two Pianos in D major performed exceedingly well in reasoning tests, compared to adolescents who listened to different genres of music, or had been in a silent room.

This study, however, did not look at the effect of Mozart on babies. The study found that college students who listened to Mozart sonata for a couple of minutes before a test that measured spatial relationship skills did better than students who took the test after listening to another musician, or no music at all.
