Sound Birthing Music
Music Therapy Assisted Child Birth
Music Therapy Assisted Child Birth provides individuals with guided use of music to effectively manage labor and delivery with a board-certified music therapist (MT-BC) present throughout. Clients learn to utilize music to calm, comfort, block discomfort, and focus breathing.
MTACB consists of individualized sessions using research-based protocol and carefully designed music programs (playlists) that the birthing client prepares with during pregnancy. The music programs promote a deep relaxation response as well as prenatal bonding with baby.
During pregnancy, the family is supported in creating a personalized womb song, which is used to bond prenataly with the baby and after birth for calming and postpartum bonding.
In-person support is provided throughout labor and delivery and the MT-BC assists in applying the music selections to provide a safe, supportive, nurturing/calm space in which to give birth.

Personalized playlists for early labor support and postpartum bonding
