Fifteen million babies are born prematurely each year. Many of them are in incubators, unable to be nurtured by their mothers. But a new app by Samsung called Voices of Life helps comfort them. It allows moms to record the sound of their heartbeats and voices. Then the high frequencies are deleted to make the sounds similar to those in the womb. The calming impact of this app can impact a baby’s heart rate, blood pressure, anxiety and pain – conditions that influence brain development, which in turn affects language and attention deficits. The app’s designer was introduced to a NICU as a dad and noticed a big difference in environments between the womb and a hospital unit. Hopefully, the app will be released very soon.
