The Voice winner, Karise Eden says her voice has changed for the strangest reason.

Is this really a thing?

She won The Voice Australia in 2012, but after having a baby in December last year Karise Eden has had to learn to sing with a new voice, because apparently it’s changed since she gave birth.

The 22-year-old says that her singing voice changed after she became pregnant and it has never gone back to the way it used to be.

(If you don’t remember her on the voice – here’s a refresher. Post continues after the video…)

“My voice is a little lower — it’s just a natural thing that happens as your body changes — so now I have to retrain the higher register,” she told The Daily Telegraph.

The artist is now having to deal with singing songs that she put a lot of high notes into, and figuring out how to make them fit with her new (lower) voice.

Her cute little bundle was definitely worth the voice change - just look at those chubby cheeks.

Apparently, it's something that happens to a lot of female artists, after they've had babies. In 2013, actress Kristin Bell said that she had noticed that her voice had lowered after having her baby.

“The pregnancy did change my voice. It made it deeper,” she told PEOPLE

While recording a voice for a character in the movie Frozen Bell explained to the magazine that, “There were more womanly tones when I did one recording while I was extremely pregnant. After I had the baby, I had to go back and re-record those lines so they matched. There was something different about my voice.”

And while we all thought the artist's may have just altered their hearing post-birth, it is actually a thing that can happen quite easily when your body goes through ALL of those post-baby changes.

“It certainly can happen. Every organ system in the body goes through changes during pregnancy,” Rebecca Starck, the regional director of obstetrics and gynecology at the Cleveland Clinic told

“I would probably surmise the reason her voice changed [is because] there is a lot of congestion in the nasal passages and mouth … and [that can] change the vocal chords.”


Well mums and mums-to-be, it looks as though there's another bodily change you can look forward to after giving birth. Deeper voices are sexier though right?

What bodily changes did you experience after birth that you weren't expecting?
