Pregnant Mothers can use Vaginal Speakers to teach music to the Fetuses

A vaginal speaker developed by Spanish company Babypod allows expecting mothers to play tunes for their unborn child by inserting the device into the vagina, which is made for the purpose of promoting fetal development.
"Babies learn to speak in response to sound stimuli, especially melodic sound,"claims the company on their website. "Babypod is a device that stimulates before birth through music. With Babypod, babies learn to vocalize from the womb."
Despite the wide range of prenatal speakers being sold in the market nowadays, Babypod differentiated themselves based on the Institut Marques gynecological clinic's research claiming that external sounds being heard clearly by the fetus is "solely possible via the vagina" as the abdominal wall tends to dull the sounds.
According to Life News on Wednesday, Babypod recommends the use of their pale pink device starting at 16 weeks of pregnancy when the fetus is capable of eliciting reactions from the sounds that they hear.
The Babypod vaginal speaker is priced at around $161 and works by being paired with a smartphone app.
The product was introduced to mothers during Christmas when Soraya Arnelas, Eurovision song contest winner, serenaded 10 fetuses and their expecting mothers with Christmas carols through Babypod's vaginal speakers. The event was dubbed the "first concert for fetuses ever held in the world."
"I've never been performing for such a young audience so for me, it's a very special show," Arnelas stated during the concert.
The vaginal speaker is also said to aid mothers in the early screening of their unborn child for deafness and neurological anomalies.
"Aside from that, though, it's a cool idea to know your unborn baby can listen to the same music as you and react in the womb," wrote blogger Sive O'Brien.
Many pregnant women were happy with Babypod's vaginal speaker, writing testimonials on the company's website.
"With the music, the baby seemed to be dancing, moving arms, legs and head. Marvelous," wrote one satisfied mother.
