Storytelling is a conscious positive communication that we can establish with our womb as it is said”A baby is something you carry inside for nine months, In your arms for three years and your heart for rest of your life…..so why not make this lifelong bond the long-lasting one.
When I was pregnant with my second baby I was already reading stories to my elder one, during the end of the second semester the nights used to be very uncomfortable but I noticed that when I was reading I felt calm and relaxed inside too, that was the time I started digging into benefits of reading stories to an unborn.
Regular reading helped to connect my elder one more to the one inside.
When finally our little one came to the real world, we noticed that she understood the sleep cycle naturally, she used to connect with my voice and my elder one’s voice too. Whenever our little one used to be uncomfortable my elder one used to say stories or rhymes and the baby used to react beautifully.
As our baby started growing we noticed a very special bond with the books we used to read, she was far more expressive than the children of her age. I never had to struggle to make her read it came naturally.
