Considering Music for gestation - what should baby be hearing while in the womb? that babies can hear sounds inside the womb, I also expect myself to hear the baby crying or making sounds inside the womb. I cannot hear anything from the baby's side.

Does a baby cry inside the womb? Or the crying process starts once he comes out? What's the logic behind this?

You need air to pass over your vocal cords for vocalizations like an infants cry to start. However, it has been observed that fetuses in the womb will make crying-like movements with their mouths, so they're certainly practicing in utero for blasting our eardrums when they arrive.
