It's not clear what this means in the long run, "but it shows how important it is for mothers to interact with their premature babies when they visit," said study co-author Amir Lahav, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School in Boston.
Babies born prematurely often suffer from hearing and language problems, Lahav explained, and the researchers wanted to know more about how they're affected by the weeks they spend in an incubator instead of in their mother's womb. "Babies begin to hear at 25 weeks' gestation, and they're exposed to the mother's voice and heartbeat," Lahav said. "Our findings do not prove that the brains of these babies are necessarily better, and we cannot conclude that they will end up with no developmental disabilities," Lahav said. "We don't know the advantages of having a bigger auditory cortex." It's also not clear if mothers' voices are crucial inside the womb or if the voices of other people might also make a difference. Still, Lahav said the research suggests that parents of premature babies need to talk to them during visits in the hospital. "Hold your baby, talk to your baby, sing to your baby," he said.


Re-Creating Womb Sounds Perks Preemies' Attention - ENT Wellbeing Sydney

Premature babies do better if their acoustical environment approximates what the babies would have heard in the womb, neuroscientist Amir Lahav said at a news conference February 13 at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Mothers' voices and heartbeats are "part of the original recipe for how we should cook premature babies up to full maturation," Lahav said. Several days after the birth of their premature babies, Lahav, of Harvard Medical School, asked 12 mothers to record themselves singing, reading and talking. Lahav and colleagues then added audio of mothers' heartbeats to the recordings and piped the sounds into babies' incubators for three hours a day.

"Preemies born this early are basically fetuses that happen to be out there by accident,"said Amir Lahav, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and senior author of the study.
"This is part of the biological recipe for how you cook a baby," Dr. Lahav said.

r. Amir Lahav of Harvard Medical School adds saying that exposure to noise and sounds very early in life will spill over to affect how the brain is going to function.
