The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System

By David Ponce

If this product was used on the people who designed the website that peddles it, we know at least one thing: it’s worth poop. The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System is meant to start educating your brand new mini-you while he/she is still in the womb.

BabyPlus is a series of 16 scientifically designed rhythmic sounds that resemble a mother’s heartbeat. The rhythm of the sounds increases incrementally and sequentially as the pregnancy progresses. The BabyPlus sound pattern introduces your child to a sequential learning process, built upon the natural rhythms of their own environment.


I’m not exactly sure what your $140 buys you. I just couldn’t manage to read through that heap of rubbish. Is it a set of CDs? Perhaps it’s that plastic oval thing on the picture. I imagine it’s like a little metronome that ticks a little faster every now and then, one that mommy sticks on her belly or something.

Why knows?

    Eeyikes! What if this gizmo is actually sending subliminal messages to Junior so that he is pre-programmed to be an Islamic Terrorist at birth? Or worse…a Canadian Liberal Politician!!!

    Oh my god! My coworker and cubemate used this thing for an hour a day throughout her pregnancy. Not only did I have to listen to the annoying ‘rythmic sounds’ of junior learning in the womb but apparently it’s taboo to tell a pregnant woman that you think she’s an idiot so I was extra annoyed and had to just take it.

    Fools, all of you. Most of what I know today, I learned in the womb. Grow up.

    Several of your commentators lack any serious knowledge about BabyPlus; the scientific basis is clearly explained on, with peer-reviewed clinical studies posted there, also referenced in my book, Learning Before Birth: Every Child Deserves Giftedness. From all socioeconomic backgrounds, 150,000 children worldwide–the oldest now leaving their teenage years–consistently demonstrate superlative cognitive, social, and creative skills, making this a product expectant parents should consider investigating.
