Brain Development in the Womb
Prenatal Gynecology in Los Angeles
In pregnancy and childhood there are numerous problems with brain development. Some are serious and many are mild. Often, there's debate as to whether there is any effective treatment or even what the cause or causes might be. These problems are often frightening or worrisome from others. They hold children back from achieving their human potential. Because of the importance of these problems, Doctor Baggot received training in brain development at the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential as as to help his patients.
LA OBGYN Dr. Paddy Jim Baggot has always held that the brain development of a fetus can be influenced by biomedical treatments and educational enrichment while in the womb. His groundbreaking research, which analyzed a 25-year database of 248 children with Down syndrome, proved his hypothesis true.
All fetuses, whether or not they have Down syndrome or any other genetic disorder that causes intellectual and developmental disability, can benefit tremendously from optimized health for the expectant mother, such as high-dose prenatal vitamin and mineral supplements as well as a healthy diet, and prenatal environmental stimulation such as reading aloud, playing music, and singing to the fetus.
Intrauterine Education - Learning before birth
Many of the most important aspects of brain development begin before birth. The research of Rene van de Carr and colleagues suggests that babies could benefit from education before birth. In an effort to provide education for postnatal brain development, Doctor Baggot will have a class called Love/Teach Your Baby Before Birth on how to educate babies while they're still in the womb.
Dr. Baggot sought intensive training at the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential. There he learned methods to enhance brain development postnatally using the methods of Glenn Doman. He will offer the following courses on how mothers can enhance the brain development of their children:
- How to teach your young child to read
- How to teach your young child how to count
- Enhance your baby's gross motor development
- Enhance your baby's fine motor development
Join Dr. Baggot as he presents his findings and learn how you can stimulate the development of your growing baby’s brain prior to giving birth. For more information, call Guadalupe Medical Center at (213) 386-2606.
