Womb tunes: vaginal speakers to serenade your foetus

Womb tunes: vaginal speakers to serenade your foetus

We’re not sure how we feel about this, but these new intravaginal speakers let you play music to your unborn baby

Babypod

Spanish company Babypod has invented an intravaginal speaker for stimulating foetal development through music.

Yes, you read that right. A speaker. Inserted into the vagina.

Suspend your disbelief for a moment.

The Babypod was developed citing research from gynaecological clinic, Institut Marqués, which suggests that the abdominal wall muffles sound.

Playing music to an unborn child without that in the way is apparently far more effective, and stimulates foetuses, promoting early attempts at vocalisation and communication while still inside the womb.

The device costs £110 and is controlled by a phone app – now that’s a whole new level of intimacy with your phone.

You can even listen to what your foetus is listening to using the device’s split headphones.

According to Babypod, it’s totally safe for mother and foetus and there are limits in place to ensure the speakers emit no more than 54 decibels, equivalent to a conversation.

Oh, and it gets weirder.

It was launched at the first ‘foetus concert’ in which the 23rd finalist in 2009’s Eurovision serenaded 10 pregnant women ‘fitted’ with the speakers with Christmas carols.
