  • The music most often listened to by the mother.
  • All the daily noises of the house.
  • And above all the sweet melody that the sound of the mother's bola brings.

At birth, he will be sensitive to the sounds he heard in the womb, that's why the pregnancy bola reassures and soothes him.

It is on this principle that the bola has been set up, the light sound it emits will be associated with the good being that you had in your belly and will bring comfort and security during his first months of life.
