Singing for expectant mothers and their babies
Why is singing especially beneficial for expectant mothers and their babies growing in their bodies?
- Singing makes you happy – this has long been scientifically proven. Whenever a mother-to-be is joyfully singing, the baby in her womb also gets his/her share of the endorphins.
- The regular and deep breathing while singing leads to optimal oxygen supply as well as a high relaxation of the diaphragm and the whole lower abdomen.
- Singing during pregnancy creates a tight bond between mother and child.
The newborn baby recognizes his/her mother's familiar voice. Actually, not only her voice but also the songs sung to him/her while still in the womb. So, those familiar songs will have a soothing effect on the newborn baby.
- And in particular singing with other mothers-to-be is simply fun!

notes, fast or slow songs, the baby in the womb experiences the joy and energy
his/her mother feels while singing.
