Synopsis

Amazon.com
While many hospitals across the country send new mums and babes home equipped with discs of classical music to soothe and gently stimulate babies' tender minds, Ultrasound brings together a delightfully well-rounded set specifically chosen for those still in the womb. Expectant moms will appreciate the effects of the mellow strains of Bach's Suite No. 3, the delicate playfulness of Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy," and Mozart's proven-to-make-you-smart Sonata for Two Pianos featuring André Previn. Debussy's "Clair de lune" is especially lovely as conducted and fluted by James Galway, and Leontyne Price is a warm blanket of comfort giving voice to Schubert's "Ave Maria." Indeed, these songs are aural balm to both parent and child long after birth. --Paige La Grone

CD Reviews

Intelligent music for baby...
Aileen Lagcao-Diaz | San Francisco, Ca | 12/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD when I was 4 months pregnant with my first baby, Irene. From that time on, every single day, I would religiously listen to the music and let my baby listen to it, too(through earphones taped to my tummy.) Now that Irene is 4 months old, we both still listen to it frequently, and her response to the music is as if she knows the songs by heart! I believe it has also made my child more attentive and intelligent as a baby, even as a newborn. I love this CD, and will treasure it as one best purchases I made for my daughter and for myself."
Very soothing, pregnant or not!

"We purchased this CD with the intention of using it for relaxation during natural childbirth using the Bradley method. That didn't work out so well... (that's another story!)But, I found this CD very relaxing during the pregnancy and we use it just as often now in the nursery. Just a nice selection of classical tunes."
Play in utero, sooths out utero

"My wife put the headphones from her portable CD player on her pregnant belly every night before bed. "Ultrasound" played for 30 minutes to an hour every night to our unborn son. Once he was born he'd sometimes get cranky in the car. We'd turn this CD on and he'd INSTANTLY settle down. It was amazing. He's 15 months old now and it still calms him down after a frustrating car ride, and he goes down for naps like a champ with this CD playing. I HIGHLY recommend this technique to all pregnant mothers!"
