Can Preemies Benefit from Music?

July 24th, 2009 · No Comments · Music with Newborns and Preemies

Picture a mother softly crooning to her newborn.  Picture this throughout history because I believe that mothers have instinctively done this from the beginning of time.  Why?  Because it calms the infant and it also calms the mother!  What if the baby comes early?

No one plans for a preemie but all over the world, preemies come into the world and their little lives dangle precipitously between life and death for days and weeks.  Could lullabies help?  Absolutely!  Because we know that the fetal ear is functional by the second trimester, the unborn child associates the melodies that Mother sings with security and safety and respond in the NICU by calming down and stabilizing heart-rate, BP, and body temperature.

If you give birth to a preemie, please sing these lullabies, but you must start doing this as soon as possible after the first trimester.  Even if your baby is full-term, the benefits of singing to the baby are tremendous and powerful!  Music contributes to wellness and emotional stability.
