our history

Prenatal University is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Prenatal University and "Music and The Preborn Classroom Program" grew out of the pioneering work in "Prenatal Enrichment", first developed in 1979 by Dr. Rene Van de Carr, an obstetrician based in Hayward, California.

  

Dr. Van de Carr states; "There is an ideal time in prenatal development, beginning at about the fifth  month of pregnancy. Interaction between the baby and its environment  stimulates brain growth both before and after birth."

In 1986, Prenatal University was established.

 

By the 1990’s, Prenatal University had collected data on more than 3,000 children who had graduated. 


Since  then, Prenatal University has published scientific articles about these  children and given numerous lectures, conferences, and interviews on  national and international television, periodicals and magazines.


Due to time constraints, most news coverage emphasizes having “smarter”  babies, but barely touch upon the practical ways to teach your “Preborn  Baby” before birth, and the incredible good feelings and positive  bonding that can occur among family members who use the Prenatal  University Program.

This  is why Prenatal University and Dr. Van de Carr, have decided to release  “Music and The Preborn Classroom” book, DVD audiobook and My Preborn  Baby's Diary, with hopes that many new parents can join the thousands of  satisfied families who have used Prenatal University's "Prenatal Enrichment" program. 


This  new program provides a comprehensive Preborn curriculum, designed for  preborns, newborns, infants and family members. The goal of Prenatal  University is to help parents and family members foster a better Preborn  environment for the baby, before and after birth.

Recently,  Dr. Van de Carr launched a very important educational method called the  "Motherhood Mentors Program", designed for "Pregnancy Assisting  Clinics". Motherhood Mentors Program provides community clinics and  organizations the structure, tools and techniques to help and teach  single mothers-to-be, living below the poverty level, about how to  prevent long term neural injury of their babies. 

Studies have now proven that the infants of poverty mothers may be suffering brain damage, which can be diagnosed and demonstrated on magnetic imaging studies (MRI).

The  Motherhood Mentors Program provides stressed and impoverished mothers, a  comprehensive, working understanding, of the "Mother/Infant"  relationship.  By facilitating a positive and proactive physical,  mother/infant interaction, during the pregnancy, and by establishing  positive habit patterns, mothers create beneficial change that will  continue through their infant's childhood and beyond. 

With  the help of a community "Motherhood Mentors", women can gain maternal  skills and individual self esteem, and in doing so, change their crisis  lifestyle, while improving their Preborn baby's future and neural  health. 

A truly viable solution....This  gives communities a structured and tangible opportunity to reduce the  damaging affects of poverty and the enormous secondary expense that is  repeated with each generation of this group of impoverished individuals.

With the Motherhood Mentors Program, communities  can step in with a "community safety net" and support single  mothers-to-be, mothers of newborns and of infants, with a tangible  solution.
