Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

I really want to go to Lady gaga... If I promise to sit far away or at the VIP lounge...
Does it really matter?
Loud music=stress babies???

Hi. We went to see Take That in Milano with my wife 7 months pregnant. Had seats though no standing baby is well and developing great. She's 7 months now and no preference for British boybands showing just yet

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

No, it's the opposite..actually, I played gigs till I was 6mo preggo with my bass on top of my belly (it was a small belly, so it was possible), and checked with a couple of docs ever since I knew I was pregnant. They all agreed that music stimulates, especially the low bass vibrations. And I happen to have a very musical little beast now..

If I rested my foot on the amp, she loved to dance to the vibrations inside my belly, moved to the beat..If your baby gets stressed, though, you will feel it. You will know. It's more about your stress, from the noise, maybe somebody running into you, bumping crazy dancers, drunks, or so..VIP lounge sounds absolutely fine. If you are far along, though, I would probably pass.

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

I am trying to convince my hubby that we should expose all kinds of music (not only Mozart) to the baby..
He does not agree.. saying that it will stress that baby out. (He is no Doctor!) Well If I book the tickets.. He will have no choice!

Maybe, but if it is jazz, it makes babies gay.

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

It depends on how loud the music is and what type it is. The amniotic fluid transfers the sound waves directly to the baby and if it is too loud then it can send the baby into distress.

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

I went to a James Bond movie at the cinema when I was 9 months and due and the baby turned round .. he started to really wriggle whenever there was shooting and music with a loud beat and blow me if I didn't realise that he was actually rotating round as I sat there. Midwife's theory was that he was trying to get away from the loud noise!

It was ok in the end .. he just had to rotate all the way back during labour which meant for a longish labour ...

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

I remember my daughter moving all the time in her mum's belly when she hears music, she's 6 y.o now and she's actually starting to play music with me in the studio without having any training and she really got some got ears....not sure if that relates to the fact me and her mum were always at concerts and always playing music all the time

Re: Does loud music really affect unborn baby?

Do it. My experience, not that I remember it, was apparently that my mum, during a heat wave in Georgia (US State, the not country) went into the theatre because it was air conditioned and sat through Star Wars twice until it was cool enough outside to go out again. She was nine months pregnant at the time. Now I'm a sci-fi geek and personally I think that might have had something to do with it.

Take your kid to Lady Gaga. The worse that could happen is bub will end up with a good (my opinion!) taste in music, and possibly a terrible "taste" in bacon flavoured clothing!
