Mom-Baby Communication

Professional women often face a daunting physical and emotional challenge after birthing, especially with the first baby. For instance, one new mother on mat leave recently told me:

I spent decades successfully building my career, and yet, even after reading countless books and articles on the subject of birthing and parenting, when my baby arrived I felt completely unprepared.

She went on to say that the sudden shock of the birth, and the exhausting days and weeks that followed, left her feeling like a failure, as though everything she had accomplished vanished with her afterbirth.

This sense of powerlessness often stems from not understanding what her baby needs when it communicates through fussiness, crying, or worse, screaming. The frustration of not knowing what to do can make a woman’s professional identity feel woefully inadequate. If she feels she cannot find the tools she needs to solve the problem, she may easily spiral into depression as well.

Fortunately, this new mother learned that by listening in a certain way to the vocal cues of her baby and responding with her own voice in specific ways she could activate trust in her maternal instinct, feel a new sense of success, and renew her hope for the future.

In short, by building confident mama-baby communication skills she took a baby step toward personal mastery of the art of parenting.

This young mother was not alone in her struggle to succeed in parenting. Over the years I have had the privilege of guiding countless young women toward the kind of self-assurance it takes to succeed in life, particularly when it comes to parenting. Now a nana, I am continuing in the SingBabySing® tradition and getting ready to provide Mom-Baby Communication Workshops for mothers in the Capital Beltway area.

If interested, please contact me in the comments area below, and I will keep you posted about the what, where, and when of the workshops.


Your Voice Your Child Book

New pregnancy book

If you are pregnant when you read this, or you know a friend or family member that is pregnant, I want you to know about my new book, Your Voice Your Child

I decided to write this book for you because my passion for helping mothers guide their children’s verbal skills has been a passion of mind for about a gazabillion years.

So now, you not only have access to my Calming Prenatal Infant Music CD that is designed to help shape your baby’s voice starting around 22 weeks into pregnancy (and beyond), but I am excited to let you know that I have now published a book to make it fun (and easier than you think) to succeed in powerful ways that will enhance your use of the CD!your voice your child book

“A tiny tool is the voice to change the world so large.”

Starting in the womb, your voice is the most powerful influence that will determine how your baby-to-be will later speak and sing.

In Your Voice Your Child, discover how to equip your child for future excellence in her verbal and vocal skills by starting off with simple vocal activities that empower you to shape her innate capacity to learn how to express ideas without fear or self-consciousness, and to communicate with clarity and confidence.

Parenting Magazine posted a great article about research that shows how babies understand human speech and how a mom’s voice is heard in the womb and why this is important.

If you are pregnant or already have a small child (or children), that article will help you to understand how important your voice is to the development of your child’s language development skills.

A professor at University College, London, Sophie Scott, who is an expert in speech perception, had something to say about the research mentioned in the Parenting Magazine report.

“We know that babies can hear their mother’s voice in the womb and pick up on the pitch and rhythm…”

The research—about a mom’s voice, babies and how they hear syllables in the womb—is posted on the prestigious PNAS site. This is the official site for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences for the United States of America. If you feel like you would like to wade through the science data, here is a link to that data.

If the science jargon is way too much for your taste, read the Parenting Magazine article.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t already done so, get a copy of my free report, Baby Voice Advantage. It’s free and full of important information about the power of your own mom’s voice—especially in prenatal/womb singing—and how important it is to the development of your child’s language skills.


Prenatal music singing & your baby

Hard to believe it has been so long since last I posted.  WAY too long, in fact.

But that is because I have had to divide my time between Singing Mastermind™

and SingBabySing®, which is not necessarily a bad thing!

I finished an affordable online singing course there and wrote a book “Singing Through Life With Your Mouth Closed,” but now I need to start getting back to my moms and pregnant women who are at the heart of my passion for creating calming prenatal singing music that is designed to give your baby a solid foundation for her vocal skills in life.

Thanks for all your patience. I will be posting more often now.

Meanwhile, be sure to get my free e-book, “Baby Voice Advantage Secrets” that tells you about the singing-language connection and your baby.

And then sign up for my “Moms’ Voice Makeover” course so that you will know when it is ready for you to give your baby the best that you can with your own voice instead of someone else’s.

This stuff is powerful!


Mom’s Voice Best Prenatal Music

Every day I get questions from people who want to know more about singing lessons.

They questions tend to be similar and center around how to sound better.

What always strikes me is how easy it is to learn to use our voices well starting early in life and yet how little knowledge there is on this subject in the media.  It really all starts with the mom’s voice, which is THE BEST prenatal music for the womb.

That is one of the reasons why I created SingBabySing®.

I know that if I can reach mothers and pregnant women during the early stage of their baby’s development, especially while the baby is still in the womb, then I will be giving the kind of service to people that can literally last a lifetime!

Here are the reasons why you deserve to know about how important your voice is for baby bonding and verbal or vocal language skills.

First of all, your baby begins to hear sounds inside your womb long before they are born.  Most of what they hear will first be your body fluids, your heart and a few other things.  It’s all muffled but they hear it.

Your heartbeat is the first music rhythm lesson your baby will get and you don’t have to do a thing to give it to him or her!

To me that is just plain awesome.

Next, your baby will hear your voice, your mom’s voice, that beautiful voice that you have inside of you that is filled with love and tenderness and everything that makes a baby feel secure and cared for.

Now, some of you may be saying, “My voice isn’t beautiful.  It’s awful!”  But I want you to start thinking differently about yourself, about your voice.

Why?  For the sake of your baby and for your own sake!

You see, the way you think about your voice, the way you think about yourself is going to be directly felt by your baby.  Remember that the two of you are intimately connected to one another for 9 months before your baby is born and then forever after they are born.

One of the most important things you can do to bond better with your baby is to realize that your voice is going to directly determine how they will learn to speak, to sing, to communicate with the world around them.

They will imitate you and the way you sound.  They will literally imitate your “mom’s voice.”  That’s your voice and how you sound.

So, the first thing you need to realize is that your voice is beautiful to your baby and it needs to feel beautiful to you so that you can enhance bonding with your baby.

Not only is the bonding part important, but the fact that you are going to determine how they sound as they grow up is maybe even more important.

When you play prenatal music for your baby in your womb, the best thing you can do is sing along with it so that your baby feels the interaction between the music and your voice.  They are listening to everything that goes on in your life.  They listen to the music you play, what you say, what you sing, in short:  how you communicate with the people around you.

And they feel and know your every mood, your every emotion.  And guess what, they hear it in your voice!

That is because your voice reflects everything that is going on in your life, whether it is good or bad.

That is one of the reasons why it is so crucial for you to know some very easy voice techniques that you can use to improve your life, your voice, the way you feel about yourself and the world around.

When you do this, you improve the quality of your own life and by direct connection, the life of your baby.

Again, that is why your voice, your “mom’s voice” is the best prenatal music for the womb that you can give your baby.

Now, my passion is teaching young women about the power of their voices and how that power either negatively or positively influences their babies for  life.  You can either set an example of vocal excellence or a crappy example of how to use the voice.  It is entirely up to you.

The most important thing to remember is that you can change the way you sound so that your baby will have what I call the best “baby voice advantage.”

And what is the baby voice advantage, you might ask?

Well, I have written about this is a lot of places, but I want to encourage you to start with my FREE ebook called “Baby Voice Advantage Secrets.”

It is never too early to get started by giving your “mom’s voice” the best prenatal womb music.  Even though your baby will not literally hear sounds until about 18-20 weeks into your pregnancy, you can get started earlier by improving the way you sound before they hear you!

Now that is just plain smart thinking!

Get ready to give them the best prenatal music for the womb.  Get ready to give them your voice…..your improved voice!
