I must lead a sheltered life. I certainly was unaware of this development in childrearing:
Pregnant women who like the idea of playing music to their unborn babies can now do so through a brand new gadget: a vaginal speaker.Or did I party too much on New Year's Eve and have woken up on April 1 ??
Spanish company Babypod has created a small pink device that can be inserted into the vagina just like a tampon.
But this ‘tampon’ doesn’t absorb blood. Instead, it turns a woman's vagina into a sound system – and connects it to her smartphone- transporting music up into the womb at a volume of 54 decibels (similar to a gentle conversation)...
The product was launched this month at ‘the first concert for foetuses ever held in the world’ - which took place in Spain. 2009 Eurovision singer Soraya serenaded ten pregnant women - all of who had Babypods in their vaginas - with Christmas carols.
