Garbh Sanskar: In Garbh Sanskar baby’s brain is most important part.
Research show that a child’s early environment can have effects that last a lifetime. In reality, brain development begins while a baby is still in the womb. We’d be smart to pay attention to the latest research in early brain development.
Did you know that babies are affected by a mother’s emotions long before birth? While nutrients that make their way from mom’s mouth to baby are critical to a babies’ healthy development, emotional influences are also in play.
Do you know that a baby in the womb who is exposed to high levels of maternal stress and fear, anxiety in the womb, due to the mother’s response to fighting or fear, primes a baby’s brain to repeat those anxiety responses in similar experiences after birth, and often years later?.Taken another way, babies raised in calm, loving, and safe environments while they are still in the womb prime their brains to repeat those calm and loving behaviours as babies, children, and adults.
It’s about time that we pay attention to babies before they make their official entrance into the world. Just because we can’t see, hear, or touch babies while they’re in the womb, it doesn’t mean they aren’t affected by our emotional experiences. With a highly-developed emotional brain, babies are born ready for relationships with those around them — and what they experience can have effects not only in the early years, but for many years to come.
Poor nutrition and exposure to drugs can lead to serious problems in brain development, behaviour, heart health, and neural development even before birth.
Stress and isolated pregnancies also effect babies before birth. Social support (and other variables) accounted for 31% approx. of the variance in fetal growth. Women who had multiple types of social support from difference sources had infants with the highest birth weight.
"Most of the brain’s cells are formed before birth”
Plan your pregnancy, it should not be an accident: Preconception health is critical to women who may become pregnant. It’s during the earliest months of pregnancy, often before a woman realizes she is pregnant, that unhealthy habits may cause birth defects in babies and brains.So plan your baby and pregnancy for the better health and brain of your baby. So high quality care is required before conceive and during pregnancy as well, don’t forget it-it’s a prime factor to give a birth a baby with better brain.
“It’s a mother’s job to nurture; a good father just needs to be a good provider”
Your baby's brain begins forming at three weeks after conception. And the brain development continues to partly rely on your baby's nutrition until the age of 2. Therefore, it is critical for you to meet all your nutrition's needs throughout the pregnancy.
