The Amazing Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Music Belt
The Benefits of Prenatal Music
Since the late 1990s more and more pregnant women have been playing womb music to their unborn babies in utero. There's growing evidence that playing prenatal music during pregnancy, has many immediate and long term benefits both for the unborn baby and the mother.
The Advantages of Playing Music to Your Baby:
- Relaxation and confidence in your baby after birth
- Enable strong bonding for mother and child through music
- Intellectual development for your baby
- Enhanced emotional development
- Improved fetal sensory development
The auditory system forms extremely early in fetal development and the ear is actually the first sensory organ to develop brain connections. From 5 months gestation your babies' ears are fully developed and you will notice their movements and responses to the sounds that they can hear.
The Amazing Nuvo Ritmo
Womb Music CD's - Mozart, Bach, Beethoven
There's evidence that playing classical music such as Mozart, Bach and Beethoven can produce a calming effect on your unborn baby as well as improve your babies' IQ, but your baby will enjoy and respond to, any type of music from around 17 weeks gestation. You may want to go easy on the thrash metal and gangster rap though and choose music with more uplifting tones, because research shows that babies will remember their womb music for up to a year after birth and chaotic or discordant type music can have some negative effects.
If you want to be really clever, then you can teach yourself and your baby to relax using music during pregnancy by playing womb music, and then use the same music for your labor and birth, which will help you both stay relaxed at this critical time.
Pregnancy Music for Baby
Play Music & Look Great!
Previously if we wanted to play music to our growing babies in the womb, we had to sit very still and fumble awkwardly with bulky speakers. The Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Sound System created by Oren Oz, is a revolution for moms to be that want to play music to their developing babies, because it fits so snugly and comfortably on our growing tummies, as well as ensuring that the music is played at optimal fetal levels.
As well as having so many benefits for your babies development, I'm sure you'll agree that the pregnancy sound system looks great as well. It's made of super comfy, soft spandex, is machine washable (but do take out the speakers first!) and fits the contours of your growing body perfectly. Its soft fabric belt is lightweight, elasticized and supportive. Wear it under your clothes while you're walking the dog, at work or pottering around doing housework. It allows you the freedom to wear it no matter what you are doing or wherever you are.
The Nuvoi Ritmo easily attaches to your iPod or other MP3 player (there is a pocket where it fits in securely) and it has a battery life of around 5 hours, which is plenty of time to play a few Mozart Concerto's plus some of your own favorites.

Thank You Oren Oz for Inventing This Wonderful Womb Music Belt!
Without Oren Oz seeing his pregnant wife struggle with convential music players while trying to play music to their unborn baby the product would never have been developed. “Ritmo was born out of my frustration at seeing my wife struggle to find a comfortable position that also allowed the speakers to stay still.”
Well all I can say is - "Good Job Oren!" You've created a great product that many women are just going to love and their babies are going to love it too - thank you!
The Nuvo Ritmo Pregnancy Sound System is truly inspired and inspiring for us moms that want to play our babies music in the womb - it's a great product and I for one am looking forward to trying out future Ritmo applications for the crib, stroller and toys when they become available. My babies absolutely love music and I think Oren Oz has hit on something that's going to become more and popular in the next few years.
