Pregnant women have stronger reactions to music than women who aren’t expecting.
Researchers in Germany played short music clips for pregnant and non-pregnant women.
Sometimes they altered the music to make it sound unpleasant.
Researchers found pregnant women who had stronger feelings about whether the music was pleasant or unpleasant – when compared to women who were not expecting.
The pregnant women also experienced a greater drop in blood pressure when listening to soothing music and a higher spike when listening to irritating songs.
Researchers say they don’t know why music has a bigger impact on women when they’re pregnant.
