Even before they are born your baby is getting ready to be a language learner. Your baby can hear your voice from only a matter of weeks into pregnancy, which is amazing! Talking to your bump, reading stories and singing songs will help them to get to know your voice. They can hear other people talking too, so encourage people in your family to talk to your bump. This helps babies to feel safe and secure.
