The science behind Garbh Sanskar! The Sanskrit word Garbh means fetus in the womb and Sanskar means educating the mind. So, Garbh Sanskar essentially means educating the mind of the fetus. It is traditionally believed that a child’s mental and behavioral development starts as soon as she/he is conceived. His/Her personality begins to take shape in the womb, and this can be influenced by the mother’s state of mind during pregnancy.
Grabh Sanskar has gained importance because researches have proved its relevance and results in the development of the child. There are scientific evidences to prove that a baby inside the mother’s womb responds to the outside stimulus and can listen. Doctors and experts also believe that there is a significant effect of the hormonal secretions that are activated by the thoughts of a mother on the unborn baby.
Garbha sanskar can be traced back to ancient Hindu texts like the Vedas which date to 1500-500 BC. One can also find its reference in the Mahabharata which was written roughly around 400 BC. It finds a place in traditional ayurvedic medicine as a guide for pregnant women in prenatal education
