Cadence was since her 9th month of her pregnancy part of the prenatal program. She was always very excited when the music plays and kicked a lot during sonar in a medical doctor’s room, we could clearly see how she looks and follows the light of a torch shown to her by lighting the mother’s belly. After birth her development was immediately good. Since birth she followed me clearly in class and did not take her eyes away from me. Her concentration skills were therefore very good. She worked for a full half an hour in the music class, doing one activity after the other, without getting tired. Her music skills are way above normal. She plays any percussion instrument with ease rhythmically with the music, she does it better than my four year old children does in class. She knows exactly when the music change, witch other movements she must do, her memory skills are very good – the moment a piece of music starts in class, she immediately remembers what movements to do. Her language skills are also above average, She speaks easy 7 word sentences, and can prove and explain what she means, she can easily change from speaking Afrikaans to speaking English. Her gross-motor skills are very good – She run easily fast in a circle and can just with ease hop on two legs or one leg. Cadence is 2 years old. She tested on all above skills at the age of 3-4 years. I believe it is because of the prenatal stimulation before birth.
Dear In the Womb I would love to take a moment to share our amazing experience and journey with In the Womb. We started with the "In the womb" program when I was 12 weeks pregnant with our first daughter. It was such a special experience. It was our hour every week to spend some intimate time with our coming child. Chelsea for sure enjoyed the drums the most...she would move the most every time we played. This of course made her father very happy as he has studied drums 🙂 There are certain things Dr Heidi would mention in class, that would only become apparent after the birth of Chelsea. In class one tends to listen and not really take in what is being read to you, until you experience the effects of this wonderful program on you r child and their development!! Chelsea was born at 37 weeks. I had a scheduled c-section for 38 weeks, but she obviously had other plans. I had a natural delivery without any numbing (epidural, spinal, etc.) The moment Chelsea was born astonished me....she was not crying...she was looking intently at her surroundings and these things called "people" surrounding her. So as if trying to take in everything from this new experience. Chelsea scored 8+ on the apgar tests. At one point she was moaning a little bit. My husband spoke to her as they were busy "cleaning" mommy. She immediately calmed down and watched her dad. It was very clear that she recognised his voice and knew who he was. She stopped crying and just watched him as he softly sang one of the songs we use to sing in prenatal class. Such a special moment!! After only a short while spent in the incubator, the nurses actually came to rush me along...Chelsea was ready to feed as she had already started rooting in less than half an hour. She was ready to start with life 🙂 they brought her to me and the immediately latched. Keep in mind she was born 3 weeks early with a weight of 2.4 kg. Tiny, but bursting with life!! She did not battle with jaundice or reflux or colic or anything. Just the healthiest, happiest little baby Something that still remains with me is how from birth she looks a person dead in the eye. And it always reminds me off Dr Heidi telling us how we are strengthening our baby's eyes with the little lights we shine to them through our bellies with the approved torches. Chelsea has such a natural love of music. We started with the Village class when Chelsea was 8 weeks old. She enjoyed seeing the friends and hearing all the instruments. Although she would fall asleep about 20 minutes into the class, showing how stimulated, but relaxed she was. It wasn't long before we had to buy Chelsea her own little bell and egg shaker to play with as she enjoyed it so much!! At 4 months old Chelsea started sitting on her own and eating solid foods. She was able to hold her bottle all by herself...she actually seemed adamant to do it herself 😛 Her hand eye coordination was also very well developed for a 4 month old...she knew exactly how to get her chip to her mouth...hehehe Chelsea started preschool at 5 months old and from there, seeing her with other kids, it was very apparent that Chelsea was far more developed on an emotional, social, psychological level. Even the teachers and principle would comment on how ahead she seems for such a small little baby. Most of her physical development was on track for her age, however the pediatrician stated that it is actually ahead as she was born earlier, and very small and petite. She loves playing with friends, but is also completely content playing on her own and exploring her surroundings. At 16 months old I noticed Chelsea playing on a keyboard (we have most instruments around the house and she just loves playing with them) the keyboard's batteries were flat, but Chels was actually singing little notes, going up in in the scales as she was going up on the notes!! Something that also opened my eyes to the impact In the Womb and Kindermusik has had was when i was driving one day with Chels in her car seat in the back. Something was upsetting her and i could do nothing to calm her down. I had the classical music from the prenatal program in the radio as i am currently playing it to our unborn daughter for stimulation. Out of desperation i started playing the CD. Chelsea immediately calmed down and looked out the window. Soon she was smiling and chatting again,. Obviously the music took her to a place of calm...thank goodness!! Chelsea just keeps astounding us with how quickly she learns new things and how determined she is to get to understand new things and figure out how to do it herself. She has also never been to hospital for any illness and exceeds at everything she does. Even in other classes i still get compliments at how well she responds to new stimuli and advances much quicker than her friends. Chelsea moved up to the Our Time class at 15 months, before the 18 month mark, as it was apparent to us that they were not stimulating enough for her anymore. She is currently 19 months old, with her baby sister on the way. We started with the prenatal classes again as soon as we could. It would be unfair to see all this amazing development in one child and withhold it form the next. This is once again our intimate hour once a week we get to spend with our second little daughter on the way. Chelsea visits wit Ouma as we get to bond with Kailey. it's so special when the daddies sing to the babies and stroke mommy's belly. When Kailey is awake, we can feel her actually stroking her dad's hand back from inside the womb. At our 20 week sonar the doctor also coincidentally picked up that Kailey's brain mass already exceeds the average for this stage...showing that the brain has already been stimulated and started developing at a much faster pace than normal. i recommend the In the Womb program, as well as the follow up programs to all my friends as i am daily seeing the changes it made in our daughers' lives. Thank you for Dr Heidi and her team!!!
Our journey with In the Womb started when I was 14 weeks pregnant. As the weeks flew by our baby boy grew increasingly more active,especially when his daddy sang to him in the prenatal classes. We were invited to do a 4D scan by Dr Heidi when I was 42 weeks along and it was an amazing experience! He reacted to everything (massage ball,drums,musical instruments and the flashlight). That's where I knew for sure that the prenatal program was working positively on my unborn child. He reaches his milestones well ahead of time and I truly believe that the stimulation in the classes has helped a lot. Thank you Heidi Twilley for all your help and effort that you have put into our child . We are absolutely reaping the benefits!
We attended the In the Womb Prenatal Program at Dr Heidi Twilley with our firstborn son. From an early age he has always been advanced in his development. His development is two months ahead of his age. His vocabulary exceeds far ahead of his age-group, he has spoken in full sentences from an early age. He is very observant in his development, he can identify the smallest details. He loves music and is very advanced.
Her amazing language development, she reached her milestones before her peers did. Her understanding of non-verbal communication was already well established by the time she was nine months old. I asked her to “go to her nappy bag and fetch the bottle” – and she did it without any hesitation. She communicates well in both English and Afrikaans and switched between the languages with ease, and without confusion, she is only 2½years old and has an amazing imagination. She has an innate love for books and music and easily remembers songs and rhymes and can recite both at will. She is capable of maintaining a dialogue and uses 7-9 word sentences. Both her fine and gross motor skills on par with a child of 3-3½ years old. Her long term memory is excellent and she returns knowledge with ease. She grasps new concepts as soon as they are introduced.
I listened to the Prenatal Music at Home while I was pregnant with my baby boy. We both loved the music, it was amazing how it would calm him and me at the same time. After giving birth I still played the music for him, it definitely made him calmer when I start playing the music for him in the background. I could definitely see the results even though I didn’t attend a class.
