Mobile (cellphone) aka cellphone has become a part of many people's lives. Most people cannot be separated from their cellphones, maybe including you. But be careful, HP can also have a negative impact on your life. In fact, there is a study that has proven that there is an impact of the sound of HP in the womb.
Impact of HP sounds on womb babies
A study has proven that there is an impact on the sound of HP in infants. HP voice (ringing and shaking) that is close to the belly of a pregnant woman can make the baby surprised and disturb the baby when he sleeps in the womb.
This study reports that all fetuses between the ages of 27 and 41 weeks of pregnancy showed a surprising reaction when they heard the sound of the cellphone. The fetus shows a reaction such as a moving head, open mouth, or blinking eyes. Not only that, the researchers also reported that the HP sound that was repeatedly heard to the baby showed a decreased baby's reaction.
This is a small study that wants to know what the fetus reacts to repeated HP ringing and vibration. Therefore, this study has not been able to ascertain whether the impact of the HP sound on babies can be large. Further research may be needed to strengthen this research.
This study also has not been able to explain whether babies who are surprised by ringing and vibrating cellphones can have an impact on the health of pregnancy and the fetus. Even so, this study ensures that the normal cycle of fetal activity can be disrupted because of the frequency with which he hears ringing or vibrating cellphones. Researchers in this study also suggested that pregnant women not carry cellphones near their stomachs.
What is the ability to hear a baby while still in the womb?
Around 6 weeks of gestation, the cells in the head of the fetus have begun to develop and begin to regulate themselves to form the brain, face, eyes, ears, and nose. Then, at the age of 23-27 weeks, the baby in the womb has begun to be able to hear.
The most obvious sound he hears in the womb is the sound of your heartbeat. In fact, this can have a calming effect on the baby. In addition to the sound of your heartbeat, babies also have begun to be able to hear some of the things that are happening around you.
At first, the baby will hear low-pitched sounds from inside your body, such as the sound of your body when pumping blood in blood vessels, the sound of your stomach, and the sound of your breath. Then, at around 29-33 weeks' gestation, the baby has begun to be able to hear high-pitched sounds coming from outside your body, such as the sound of a car alarm or the ringing sound of your cellphone.
The ability to hear babies that continue to grow along with the gestational age that is close to the time of birth makes the baby more likely to be able to hear sounds produced from the cellphone that you hold. For that, you should keep your cellphone away from your stomach when gestational age begins to increase, and also adjust the sound of your cellphone with a smaller volume.
