Because research shows the sound of a ringing cellphone startles babies in the womb! Dr. Boris Petrikovsky, a director of maternal and fetal medicine at Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in Manhattan, used high-quality ultrasound on women in their third trimester… And observed how the fetuses reacted to ringing cellphones. The result: Babies exhibited the “startle reflex” – meaning they’d turn their heads, open their mouths, and blink more rapidly. Basically, it woke the babies and scared them, increasing their stress. So, moms… You may want to put your phone on silent so your unborn baby can get some uninterrupted rest.
