A happy mom communicates her feeling to her baby nestling in her womb through the amniotic fluid. Research is establishing a connection between a mother’s start of mind and that of her baby’s disposition. She has already begun bonding and sharing her life with her baby and they are both comrades in arms – mom and baby. Her happiness hormones create an environment of calm and bliss for the baby to grow in. Your baby’s learning and thinking process begins while she is still in the womb.
There’s an incredible, instinctual, mechanism that’s revved up when a baby and the mother are put together. In a foetus these responses seem primitive, but they are responses all the same. While we may be under the impression that the uterus is a quite cosy little place where peace reigns supreme things could not be further away from the truth. Actually, life in the uterus is noisy and unsetting. Mama’s voice resonated deep within, her organs provide their own cacophony of sounds – gurgling, pumping, and beating. This riotous world acquaints the foetus to sounds, tastes and smells. She is already prepared to face the world outside with a distinct personality of her own.
Imagine being born with the ability to be happy. Yes, it’s possible; there might be those lucky babies who have it in-built into their systems to be happy. This was illustrated by watching two identical twins brought up separately under different environment, displaying the same levels of happiness. Research is increasingly indicating that there is a happiness set-point that each of us is born with.
