Being in the stage of motherhood is an amazing experience for any woman. It is the phase when she gets attention, love, and care from family members. Apart from eating healthy, a going-to-bed mother needs a pleasant environment and a peaceful mind.
Spending time with dear ones and friends gives pleasure to a pregnant lady. Since books are the best friend to beat loneliness and meet peacefulness, a pregnant lady can read books. Reading books during pregnancy is beneficial for not only going-to-be-mothers but also the womb.
Benefits to Read Books during Pregnancy
- It helps reduce maternal stress and anxiety especially for those women who are going to-be-mother for the first time.
- When a pregnant lady reads books and sings a lullaby, the heart rate of the baby goes down and she becomes calm down.
- Reading helps to build a bonding between the mother and the baby because the unborn child starts recognizing her mother’s voice.
- It improves concentration and increases the attention span of the baby. When the pregnant lady starts to read or sing the same story or rhyme, repetitive words get stored in the memory of the unborn.
