In short, fetuses develop hearing by around week 25, though with limited response to frequencies, however by 31 weeks, fetuses will have a range of 500 Hz – 1,000 to 3,000 Hz. Human speech is around 1,000 – 5,000 Hz. Thus babies can hear you which is why it’s important to measure your words carefully to positive, loving, nurturing words.
