In the Indian epic Mahabharata, Abhimanyu was a powerful warrior who learned most of his art of warfare while still in the mother’s body. This anecdote goes to show that even the ancients knew about the brain development of the fetus and the importance of IQ boosting while the baby is in the womb.
In today’s age of competition the parents want to prepare the child for future struggles as early as possible. If you are one of those go-getters, then the best time to hold the reins of your baby is from the very conception.
Effecitive Tips to Boost a Baby’s IQ in the Womb
The Right Diet
Folic acid is the single most important component for the healthy development of the brain and spinal cord of the child. Eat folic acid rich food and include a minimum of 400 micrograms of this component as the food supplement in the daily diet.
Similarly, another food component that is vital in the brain development of your baby is DHA or Docosahexaenoic acid, one of the important omega3 fatty acids. Marine fish oil is rich in this ingredient which plays a structural part in the human brain and retina. Mothers who include DHA or DHA supplements during pregnancy are found to give birth to combatively higher IQ babies.
Stress is highly debilitating for the brain development of the child in womb. So, stay away from people or situations that cause stress or anxiety during the pregnancy period. Do breathing exercises, get enough sleep, keep yourself busy through pastimes that both excite and vitalizes you, laugh a lot, socialize and do everything within your power to stay away from feeling the blues or being stressed out. This way you are ensuring the right IQ level of your child.
Keep Yourself in Top Form
Mother’s physical and mental state determines the health and mental development of the baby. Eat healthy and try to remain in top physical form to ensure that the child in your womb gets the best chance at life. If the mother doesn’t get adequate nutrition the growth of the baby suffers, sometimes irrevocably.
Researchers have found that an 8 pound baby generally scores high in the IQ region as compared to its lighter counterparts. Positively a relationship exists between the body weight and the intelligence quotient of the child. In cases of siblings those who weighed more during birth were found to have higher IQs than their other brothers and sisters.
Make your child listen to music while still in womb. Soothing classical music has been found to increase concentration and learning propensity in later stages. Also, as grown-ups they have a better understanding of music than others. Similarly continuous touching or talking and even reading aloud from a book with the baby in the womb may seem quite comical at the time, this exercise not only increases and seals the mother-child bond and stimulate the brain development but also gives the incipient training regarding words and languages which have a positive impact in future.
