    Blog by Vidhi

    Why is Garbh Sanskar important?         

    Garbh Sanskar is a traditional Indian practice that supports the child physically, mentally, and emotionally while in the womb. It helps to imbibe values in the child from conception. The fetus's brain development starts after five weeks. It is scientifically proven that the child responds to external stimuli, whether happy, sad, stressed, or anxious. Whatever the mother feels, the baby feels. That is why reading ancient scriptures, listening to calming music, and having a healthy lifestyle are recommended for pregnant women, as these impact the child.

    The Indian scriptures provide evidence through the story of Abhimanyu, who learned how to enter the chakravyu by just listening inside the womb. Garbh Sanskar builds the character and personality of the child. It is comparatively rigid to imbibe values in a child after he is born, so the practice of Garbh Sanskar holds great significance. It helps the child better connect with his mother and the external world. Bhakt Prahlad is another example; while his father was an eternal atheist, his mother was a hardcore Lord Vishnu bhakta. She used to pray to Lord Vishnu while Prahlad was in the womb, and hence, Prahlad got his devotion from his mother.

    There are various doctors who generally recommend that pregnant women should follow certain things during pregnancy:

    • Positive thinking and a stress-free environment.
    • Healthy diet and exercise.
    • Reading scriptures or good books
    • Listening to music.
    • Talking meaningful things to the fetus.
