Correspondingly, why does my womb make noises?
Around week 25 or 26, babies in the womb have been shown to respond to voices and noise. Recordings taken in the uterus reveal that noises from outside of the womb are muted by about half. That's because there's no open air in the uterus. Your baby is surrounded by amniotic fluid and wrapped in the layers of your body.
Additionally, can you hear baby make noise in belly? Babies can hear inside (and outside) the womb, and the uterus is very noisy. Most of the ear structures required to pick up sound are formed by week 16. From then on, a mom's heartbeat, eating, breathing, walking, talking, exercising, burping, and digestive gurgling can easily be heard by a developing baby.
Additionally, what does it sound like in a womb?
The womb can be a very noisy place indeed, even in a quiet environment. The mother's rhythmic heartbeat and breathing, the steady whoosh sounds of blood rushing through her veins, Mom's voice, her body movements, and the digestive process after lunch time are those noises that come to mind first.
How loud is the mother's heartbeat in the womb?
In utero, the fetus is subjected to auditory stimuli from the mother's heartbeat, arterial blood flow, respiratory and digestive sounds.  These endogenous sounds have been measured as high as 70 to 90 dB, levels which are outside current NICU recommendations for environmental stimuli.
