Transcription: 
Well, in the third trimester, the baby's brain begins to connect, create all these connections and will keep doing that for at least a year and a half. The baby's brain is very unformed at birth. Nevertheless, in that third trimester, the baby can start to hear and can start to pick up on sense, smells, and as a mother carrying your baby, you certainly feel the presence of the baby and you can begin to do things like singing to the baby, talking to the baby, putting Mozart on for the baby and the baby will hear this and the baby will respond to the sound of your voice.
