“Rule #1 to have an intelligent baby is to find an intelligent partner. If for
some reason that you did not have chance to meet an intelligent partner,
you still have hope: you should read carefully every single chapter in this
Chapter 1- Introduction
According to scientists, statisticians and researchers, the intelligence of a normal
baby is determined by genetic factors (inherited genes from mother and father) and by environmental factors. There have been numerous studies conducted to
investigate the role of the environment on a child’s intellectual development and all of them have concluded that a child’s IQ can be negatively or positively affected by her
environment. In fact, they suggest that a stimulating environment will impact positively on her intellectual development.
Many different experimental studies have been done with success looking during several years at the biological psychological, and development of children, and compared the results of an experimental group of moms (control
group) with adequate training (prenatal enrich course in pre-birth stimulation, parenting skills, nutrition and early stimulation) against those who were not stimulated during the pre-birth period for their
untrained moms, and they have found differences as big as 15 points in the IQs between these groups.
In order to improve the IQ in a baby, parents must to know how they can take and influence positively each step in the development of the baby’s cells and brain, even
before the conception, until the age of the school. Knowing and understanding the genetic and environmental facts involved in the conception, the development of the baby’s brain, nutrition and the appropriate techniques for stimulation, parents could
do a positive influence over the key factors to improve the intelligence of a baby.
1.1 What determine intelligence?
For decades, it has been debated whether the intelligence of a human being is determined by nature (genetic inheritance) or by family environment, cultural and
social context in which the individual grows up. According to scientists, statisticians and researchers, the intelligence and intelligence quotient (IQ) of a baby is
determined 60-80 % by genetic factors as inherited genes from parents, and 20-40 % by environmental factors.
On one hand, the brain, the nervous system and the baby’s body is developed
according to the genetic instructions and nature received from genes inherited from
the parents. On the other hand, an important part of the intelligence and IQ of the
babies depends on the parent’s health and education, the prenatal nutrition of the
mom, the family environment, the early stimulation received for the unborn baby
during the pregnancy, and the nutrition during the first year of the baby’s life.
Genetic Factors (60 to 80% Determined)
The brain, the nervous system and the baby’s body is developed according with the genetic instructions and nature received from the genes inherited from the parents
Rule #1 to have an intelligent baby is that before anything happens, try your best to
find an intelligent partner. If for some reason that you did not have chance to meet
an intelligent partner, you still have hope. You should read carefully every single
chapter in this book, with your partner hopefully, as many times as possible to fully
understand its content, and then put the knowledge into practice including all of the
advices and suggestions.
1.2 How can we change the two factors?
It is easy to understand that the second factor, the environment that the baby is born
to and educated of, should be able to be changed and modified by prospective
parents. But it is not known until very recently that the first factor, the genetic
determination, can also be changed and modified by any parents, if they want to, to
some extent. And it is possible that one day in the future, 100% of the genetic
background of a baby will be modifiable and reshapable, when the technologies of
human genome and gene therapy develop to certain stage. But this is beyond the
volume of this book.
How to change the environmental factors?
Environmental factors responsible for our intelligence can be as high as 40%, and it
is not too small a strength. When we talk about environmental factors that influence
baby’s IQ intelligent development, we mean almost all of the things that can have
effects on brain growth, and thus it is really complicated. This is also the reason that
it is recommended that parents have better education before conception, since
education background will help parents to understand the principle of complex brain
Every single chapter of this book will assist you to use all of the possible ways in daily
life to improve different environmental factors, in order to stimulate brain
development towards better intelligence. For instance, before conception, a chapter
will discuss about how to prepare you and your partner, and how to learn about the
methods to know your exact ovulation date in each month. When you are certain
about your ovulation date, the content will further assist you to learn about how to
preserve your partner’s sperm with higher numbers and better qualities. These
knowledge and training will actually improve and optimize the environment factors in
your body towards the goal of an IQ baby.
After you are pregnant, a few chapters will show you how to establish a womb school
at home with your partner. The methods and protocols are so simple and easy, and
you can use what you already have at home, and there will be no expensive item to
purchase necessarily for this purpose.
All you need to do is to follow the procedure step by step, and methods described in
details will guide you through the whole pregnant period, from the first trimester to
the last one. These methods will enhance the environmental factors in your womb to
bring you a baby with better intelligence.
Another chapter will guide you through the delivery process smoothly, to protect the
baby that you and your partner have spent years to prepare for, and 9 ½ months of
hard work to take care of. It will show you what you need to do to prepare yourself
for the delivery, and how many choices you may have to choose a certain delivery
way that fits you the best. It also tells you what you need to know and prepare at
home for the home coming baby, and in delivery center of hospital of your choice.
Environmental Factors (20 to 40% determined)
The intelligence and IQ (intelligence quotient) of a normal baby is determined in a 60-80 % by genetic
factors (inherited genes from mother and father) and 20-40 % by environmental factors.
1.3 How to change the genetic factors?
Besides the idea of finding a partner with intelligent genes, it is found recently that
there are other ways to change the genetic factors that have impact on IQ
development, which was thought impossible in the past decades. We have learned
within the past few years that our genes can be modified by many simple ways, and
one of the most accessible ways is through food consumption.
Our bodies are built up of proteins that are made by our genes, when proteins are
made according to genes, it is called gene expression meaning that genes are
expressing themselves as the forms of proteins. And thus different genes make
various proteins to build different parts of the body, from muscles, teeth, hairs, to
“Although we can’t change the structure of genes, it is now possible to change the
way our genes work,” “food, exercise, stress and our emotions can all switch genes
on or off,” says Dr. Tim Spector, a professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College
London. The information tells us that how our genes express is up to us, our
behaviors and what we eat will determine at least partially the buildup of our bodies
and our brains, especially in a sensitive stage like early life of a baby.
For example, a study published on a journal called FASEB (the Federation of
American Societies for Experimental Biology), conducted by Dr. Mihai Niculescu from Nutrition Research Institute at the University of North Carolina, showed clearly that
diet prior to pregnancy alters mothers’ DNA and passes these changes along to their
offspring in mice, and subsequently change the metabolism within the bodies of the
This means that when a pregnant woman takes in diets before and after her
pregnancy, it will have chances to change her gene expressions as proteins, and
during this time, one of the most important gene expressions – the fetus, will be
possibly changed and modified. For instance, folic acid, as one of the recommended
vitamins to be taken for pregnant women, can prevent birth defects, because it can
switch off hundreds of genes that may cause problems to a newly forming baby.
Besides food diets, vitamins and other nutrients, other factors like exercises,
emotions and stress, are all potential factors that will be able to change gene
expressions and protein forms during pregnancy. You should be aware of all of these
factors, and try your best to provide ideal environment and conditions for your future
This book is going to consider all of the factors, like food diet, nutrients, emotions,
stress and exercises, to design a practical plan fitting to most of your needs before
and after your pregnancy, as well as to offer educational strategies for your baby
during your pregnancy and after your baby’s birth. When you read this book, you will
find out the myth and tricks of all of these amazing and effective methods, advices,
and protocols that you are looking for. They are simple and easy to be understood,
and ready for your use.
