Expecting a baby in 2016? Well you and your foetus are both in for a right treat, because some quick thinkers over at Babypod have created the speaker of your
The Babypod – rightfully dubbed the ‘musical tampon’ by the clever folks at Jezebel – allows expectant mothers to push a tiny speaker into their special place to treat their bun in the oven to all the latest hits. Or you know, an audio book or a podcast, if that’s what your future child is into.
Yes. You read that right. A speaker. In. Your. Vagina.
Babypod have described the product as “a whole universe of sound” that can give the baby “the benefits of music starting before birth” after research undertaken by Spain’s Institut Marquès found babies in utero were stimulated by sound and responded by moving their mouths and tongues when the
musical tampon Babypod was inserted.
Because in 2016, sticking some headphones on your swollen belly just isn’t going to cut it.
No really, it isn’t going to cut it, and as Institut Marquès discovered the ol’ headphones on the tummy trick will result in extremely muffled sounds for the little boy or girl who’s taken up residence in your abdomen.
As Babypod have said, the only way to truly share sounds with your child is through the vagina.
“By placing a speaker inside the vagina, we overcome the barrier formed by the abdominal wall and the baby can hear sounds with almost as much intensity and clarity as when emitted,” the Babypod website reads.
It truly is great news for anyone who has ever contemplated sticking their headphones up their lady parts and despaired over the fact that there wasn’t a better way to treat your bundle of joy to the latest Taylor Swift album.
The people at Babypod recently threw a concert for unborn babies. Yes, really.
Although as one Mamamia writer and mother Jo put it, “They are going to violate my vagina enough by coming out”
Repeat, “Mummy’s lady parts are NOT your personal entertainment system.”
Would you use the Babypod?
