The Polyclinique du val de Sambre is working with the Conservatoire of Maubeuge to produce recordings of classical music that will be suited to pregnant mothers at all stages of the baby’s development.

    The first three CDs of the series Genius in the Womb are:

    1) “Mozart” if you want your child to grow up to be a prodigy genius dying by the age of 35 and buried in a common grave.

    2) “Schubert” for mothers who want a sensitive genius dying from syphilis and madness.

    3) “Tchaikovsky” for those who want a tormented closeted genius in love with his nephew dying from suicide.

    Or one could listen to rock music.

      By the way, there’s absolutely no mention whatsoever of a “recording label” in the article, only that some conservatory students gave concerts there. “Un nouveau label” only means here a qualification recognized by the Ministery for using musicotherapy.

      Research at the Texas Institute for Technology has shown that 98,5% of Trump voters have been exposed to rap and country & western when in their mother’s womb. Most scientists however, including 83% of them working at NASA and 2% working at the TIT, heard classical music while their mother was pregnant. It also transpired that Hitler’s mother had attended Wagner’s Ring at various occasions when pregnant. It appears that most poiticians in the West, struggling with identity problems, constipation, and procrastination disorder, had endured endless pop music in their fetal stage. It’s very complicated.
