The Effect Of Mother's Laughter On An Unborn Baby In The Womb

June 17, 2023

Jermaine Fowler is a New York Times best-selling author and historian. He launched the Humanity Archive, a platform dedicated to unearthing and examining the depths of our humanity.

In a recent post, he shared a video of an ultrasound and wrote:

"When a mother laughs during pregnancy, an extraordinary cascade of events unfolds within the cozy confines of the womb, intimately connecting her joy to the developing baby.

As her laughter reverberates through her body, a symphony of hormonal changes is set in motion. Endorphins, the body's natural "feel-good" chemicals, flood the mother's bloodstream, creating a euphoric state that is shared with her unborn child.

As the mother's diaphragm contracts with each peal of laughter, the rhythmic vibrations ripple through the amniotic fluid, swaying or rocking the baby. Within this watery sanctuary, the baby responds, sensing the mother's delight. The tiny body, floating weightlessly, awakens to the palpable joy transmitted through the mother's laughter.

The sound of the mother's laughter, muffled but distinct, reaches the baby's developing ears, triggering a cascade of neural activity, linking positive emotions to auditory stimuli.

This remarkable interaction creates a profound bond, setting the stage for a harmonious connection between mother and child."
