INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- All American gymnast, wife and mom-to-be Shannon Miller is the new spokesmom for BabyPlus®. Miller is expecting her first baby in late October and has been using BabyPlus during pregnancy to ensure her child gets the best possible start on life and learning. Now she's sharing her experience and enthusiasm for BabyPlus with other expectant moms around the world.
"We are thrilled to have Shannon on board," BabyPlus President and Founder Lisa Jarrett said. "She is a well respected, highly decorated athlete who is committed to giving her son every advantage even before he arrives. When we found out she was using BabyPlus®, it seemed like the perfect partnership."
The most decorated American gymnast in history, Miller has led a life striving for excellence. She has won seven Olympic medals and nine World Championship medals. In 2007 she started her own foundation to fight childhood obesity and earned a law degree from Boston College School of Law. Now she's embarking on her next undertaking, one of the most exciting, rewarding events of her life--having a baby. In keeping with her champion spirit, Miller is ensuring her baby will get the best start possible by using the BabyPlus prenatal education system®.
"Like any parent, we want our son to have every advantage and benefit we can give him. BabyPlus helps us do that," said Miller.
Miller understands BabyPlus strengthens babies' learning ability while they are still snug in the womb and gives them an intellectual, developmental, creative and emotional advantage from the time they are born.
BabyPlus introduces a safe, simple set of sounds to a child as early as 18 weeks in the womb. These sounds are patterned after the mother's heartbeat, the one language the baby can recognize at this early stage of development. This is the only true and consistent sound of the prenatal environment. The BabyPlus sound patterns are varied through a series of lessons. As the baby starts to differentiate the sounds of their natural environment from the BabyPlus lessons, learning begins.
Families in more than 60 countries around the world including doctors, teachers and childhood development experts around the world have experienced the benefits of early education through the BabyPlus Prenatal Educational System. Right from birth, BabyPlus parents report babies more readily nurse, display an increased ability to self-soothe and are more relaxed and alert. Later in life these children reach earlier developmental milestones, show improved school readiness, greater creativity and independence and have longer attention spans.
BabyPlus is sold in Destination Maternity and A Pea in the Pod stores in the United States. BabyPlus is also available on Babies R Us.com, Target.com and Johnson and Johnson's Baby Center.com.
