Garbhasanskar means “Education in the womb”. It is actually a Sanskrit term, Garbh translated as innermost part of the Womb and Sanskar is educating the yet to born one. It has been traditionally believed that a child’s mental and behavioural development starts as soon as its conception happens. A Child’s personality begins to shape up in the mother’s womb itself and it can be influenced by the mothers state of mind during pregnancy. Each moment of child inside the womb is directly attached with their parent’s behavior. It makes a direct impact on child’s behavioral mechanism too. The nine months of pregnancy is believed to be a very decisive period for the mother and more so for the child that is developing into a wholesome life from a tiny cell. There has been recent scientific interest on the subject, and some evidence suggests that a baby’s brain develops up to 60 per cent while in the womb. The methodology practiced during Garbha Sanskar only makes proper use of this fact and attempts to provide the desired environment that is conducive to the growth and proper development of the baby. It has been long proven that the unborn baby has the potential to listen, feel and respond to the outside environment. And the outside environment therefore renders an invaluable impact on the mode of development of the baby.
During the entire 9 months’ journey of the child within the womb of mother, child shares a very strong bond and it is constantly listening to the mother’s voice. It is also becoming more and more apparent that an unborn baby is able to respond to outside influences such as sound, light and movement. To help a mother remain in the best possible frame of mind in the interest of her growing baby, Garbha sanskar suggests a set of practices and way of life. This includes reading or seeing things that make you happy, communicating with your baby, performing spiritual activities like pujas, meditating and eating healthily. Expected father also to be played important role, he should communicate with his baby by touching baby bump, also can read story books, singing and playing music and take up other vocal activities to strengthen the bond with unborn child. Father and other family members responsibility is to always keep happy and joyful environment. They must be completely engaged in keeping the mother happy which will ultimately produce a well-balanced happy child.
Mother should avoid negative thoughts; negative television shows, action movies and meaningless programs, as it becomes a family responsibility to engage in positive communication. Watching comedy movies or shows creates positive vibes for mother and child, chanting or listening of spiritual mantras will help keeping mother positive.
Garbha sanskar is not restricted to any one religion, it is open to all the religion, cultures and communities. All the practice of communication with unborn baby remains the same, only the religious practice inputs can be different as per the religion and culture. There are other cultures in the world that share the concept of ‘education in the womb’ that underlines the same theory but with a different tag name and some have connected it with birth psychology and musical communication in most Asian and western cultures.
Hence education begins in the womb is the betterment of happy child. There are good Garbhasanskar classes available in your cities. It is been advised to you to attend Garbhasanskar class personally.
