Amazing Video: 16 Week Fetus Startle Doctors By Responding To Music

Watch a fetus react to music in the womb for the 1st time

 

 

Via Daily Mail:

Unborn babies are able to hear in the womb at just 16 weeks gestation, a new study has revealed.

 
For the first time scientists at the Institut Marques in Barcelona have shown a foetus is able to detect sounds, and furthermore, that they respond by moving their mouths and tongues.

 

It is accepted that an unborn baby’s ear is fully developed at week 16 of a pregnancy.

 

But, until now experts did not believe a fetus could hear until week 18, at the earliest but more commonly nearer 26 weeks.

 

Dr Marisa Lopez-Teijon, who led the study, said the findings show a foetus responds to music transmitted intravaginally by moving their mouth and tongue, ‘as if they were trying to speak or sing’.

 

While showing for the first time that fetuses hear as early as 16 weeks, the study also has wider implications. More
