Getting to know your baby

Taking time as part of your daily routine to think about and bond with your unborn baby is known to release oxytocin, a hormone which can help your baby’s brain to develop.

You can try this by:

  • talking or singing to your baby, and encouraging your partner/family/other children to do the same
  • massaging your bump
  • having a bath
  • trying pregnancy yoga
  • practising hypnobirthing
  • playing music to your baby
  • using an app to help you understand how your baby is growing and developing, such as the Baby Buddy App.
