“Pre-natal stress hugely growths the likelihood of a child having attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, cognitive delay, anxiousness and depression. Stress during pregnancy as well increments the risk of the child being autistic and, in rare cases, schizophrenic. Stressed mothers also produce babies with lower birth weight, which can be an indicator for coronary heart condition in later life.” – Vivette Glover, Professor of Perinatal Psychobiology, Imperial College London.
There is no need to worry if you are wanting to play an instrument, but have no knowledge or training. The Freenotes Wings are especially designed to be a light-weight harmonically tuned instrument that never needs tuning or adjusting – it is always ready to play, and the soothing harmonic tones immediately create a calm and soothing experience for you and your baby.
The added bonus in playing a Freenotes, is that when you child is old enough to begin playing the Freenotes through its selective harmonic notes gives the child the absolute freedom to explore spontaenously his/her own innate musicality .
