What is a good song to announce pregnancy?

We’ll kick off with the first song you’ll need on your pregnancy playlist — the one you use to announce your pregnancy.

Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break

Which songs are best during pregnancy?

Honestly? Whatever songs make you feel good.

You’re probably feeling all sorts of things right now, from emotional highs and lows to, well, nausea and fatigue.

Your favorite tunes can help you through all of it.

Studies have shown that music has all kinds of effects on your mood and sense of self — and the extra help can be really important as you go through this time.

But the benefits go further.

Your baby may be enjoying those sweet sounds, too.

Somewhere around the 23rd week of pregnancy, your baby will be able to hear noises from the world outside.

That means they might be enjoying your favorite tracks together with you.

Basically, this could be the very beginning of a long musical journey you will go through with your little one.

Consider this your first dance.

Plus, studies show that listening to music while you’re pregnant may have a positive impact on your baby when they are born.

In fact, exposure to music while in the womb may even have an effect on brain development, according to this study.

When it comes to what to listen to, go with your gut.

You’re going to go through a lot of feelings over these nine months.

We’d say, choose the perfect fit for your current mood.
