Well I think they can hear you..With my first I played Tim Mcgraw all the time..I paced ear phones on my belly..And when my son was 3 someone asked him who his dad was and he said Tim Mcgraw..Now no one told him that..Whenever he heard his voice he would say his name..I use to sing Abcs to my last child and at 21 months he could almost say them..I guess it just depends on what you believe.

I don't know if it helps them to be smarter but I would think it would have to help with the bonding process.
Have a wonderful day!

It does help with bonding, and makes the child more interested in music, if you have heard lots of music when the baby is in the womb. I have two kids who are really interested in music, and I think me listening to music during pregnancy has a lot to do with it.

It turns out that there is  evidence that supports the positive effects of music on one's ability to do math. I had heard this when I was pregnant with my son and exposed him to music both while I was pregnant and after he was born.  He is a math whiz!

Not sure that it really makes your child smarter but I do think its soothing for the baby..... unless you have an awful voice  ;D

I just saw results of a new study that suggests that it does nothing to benefit the child, but next week they will probably change their minds and state that it does.  One week coffee will kill you, they next week it prevents heart attacks.  I say if it makes mom's feel like they are doing something good, then it certainly can't hurt.

I don't know about affecting how smart they may become but I think it could be soothing to them to hear your voice or soft music. I'm sure there are lots of articles you could find online about any benefits there may be
