My patients report that exposing the baby to one particular piece of music repeatedly while in utero makes that piece of music very calming to the baby and child after birth but I know of no controlled studies proving this

In brief: See below
There is a school of thought that thinks that music therapy, in pregnancy and in childhood, can increase the iq of children.
However, the scientific data does not show this. If it calms you and/or your child i would say do it.
