Bangkok Hospital Pattaya is helping prospective mothers develop their baby’s five senses even before birth.
Assistant Director Dr. Siharat Lohachitranont opened the hospital’s “Sharp Senses Begin in the Womb” workshop April 30 featuring lectures from obstetricians and child-development experts.
Dr. Manit Sanmaneechai talked about how the development of hearing, vision, touch, smell and taste are affected by the mother’s health. It’s important, Manit said, for pregnant women to eat balanced diets, get adequate amounts of sleep and exercise.

The child-development doctor also said the mother’s mental state needs to be content and positive. This, combined with speaking to her unborn child, can help sharpen the fetus’ senses.
Bangkok Hospital’s Women’s Health Center offers full pregnancy care beginning with family planning consultations even before conception. The hospital’s “maternity VIP” program offers special benefits for patents with Social Security benefits. For more information, contact BHIP at 1719.
