Loving or therapeutic touch
Several times during the day, tenderly place your hands on your belly. Imagine yourself holding your baby as she sleeps or kicks inside your womb. Gently caress your belly while speaking softly to her. Spend time connecting with your baby through the sense of touch, even before she is in your arms.
Speak Sounds of Love
The soothing sound of your own voice is perhaps the single most nourishing sound that you can share with your baby.Take some time each day to sing, coo, read to,and talk to your baby, knowing that he or she is listening.
