Music Therapy For Pregnant Women and The Family

Talk and sing to the baby close ties of affection

In pregnancy several possibilities, care and happiness involve the mother and baby’s family. And it is also at this point that the bonds of affection and love start to be built. It was with this reasoning that the musician Fernando de Oliveira Pereira decided to study the dynamics of music therapy during pregnancy and created so the Future baby Method, music therapy for pregnant women, Expectant Families and their babies.

But anyone who thinks that this process includes putting CDs with operas or music calm to the fetus hear, is totally wrong. Musician explains that “the voice is one of the first sounds that your baby hears and that’s why we use it to strengthen family ties.” According to the music therapist, which he also studied obstetrics, fetal hearing aid is almost entirely formed in the 21st week of pregnancy, and from there he already experiencing some sensations.

Among the sounds that reach the baby, which is immersed in amniotic fluid, are some noises of maternal organs, heartbeat, in the footsteps of his mother and even the joints of the skeleton of pregnant women. But the sound that stands out for the baby is the human voice. “The fetus recognizes not the voice itself, but the timbre, intonation and the frequency it produces. In this case he didn’t hear words, but the tune of what is said or sung, “explains Pereira.

So, for the music therapy sessions conducted in the family home pregnant, he suggests that pregnant women and also family members talk to the baby. “Mom can just talk with him, talk about future plans. Grandparents can tell stories of family and the father can hum to the baby “, exemplifies maternity sports bra listed on Thedresswizard. Of course there is an established order of who does what, but it’s important to narrow the affective ties with the whole family, and not only with the mother.

And the specialist is emphatic about the singing. “The fetus hear especially the singing voice,” she explains. Hence the encouragement to hum while waiting the arrival of the baby. The Repertoire in this case is at the discretion and taste of the family, but if it’s a ‘ there, there, there ‘ or a melody sung with mouth closed up to the baby’s ears.

After the baby is born, all this talking and singing will serve to record the sensations sonoras intrauterine who lived. In breastfeeding, for example, mom can sing a song that the fetus heard enough while in your womb. “He will respond to the stimulus with the suction rhythm and the time of feeding. Watch the baby, “he explains. Enter at this stage also songs that you sing to your baby played electronically and encourage him further.

Music therapy session with Fernando Pereira also includes a lecture on the hearing of the fetus, prenatal communication and massage for babies Shantala (oriental technique studied and disseminated worldwide). Said the popular saying: “Who sings, its evils amaze”.
