Publication of the first comprehensive resource on prenatal sound enrichment-Learning Before Birth: Every Child Deserves Giftedness


Numerous studies link the earliest sonic influences to youth and adult proficiency; Brent Logan designs a second-generation prenatal auditory player, trade named BabyPlus, with extensive donations of units to developing countries, resulting in benefits for tens of thousands of children from every socioeconomic background.

1989 – 90

Commercialization of fetal enrichment technology created by Brent Logan commences, with 3000 children advantaged

1987 – 88

The first babies prenatally experiencing an imprintable sonic progression under Brent Logan’s projects are born; he begins a series of related articles in academic journals


Brent Logan presents prelearning theory before professional congresses, then inaugurates in utero pilot studies to verify his contention; Rene Van de Carr publishes the first clinical evidence showing neonatal and infant assets from prenatal stimulation


Upon learning from his patients about fetal responsiveness to abdominal touch, California obstetrician Rene Van de Carr, MD, develops a stimulation methodology of tactile manipulations paired with words describing these actions.


Media reports about Americans Joseph and Jitsuko Susedik having enriched their four daughters before birth and throughout childhood during the prior decade with mixed means, all girls demonstrating giftedness; Brent Logan proposes curricularized variations of maternal in utero heartbeat sounds as an auditory curriculum. This initiates comprehensive theoretical research, and he invents the earliest prenatal learning technology.
