Music for the childbearing family
Journal/Book: JOGN Nurs. 1979; 8: 363-7.
Abstract: The therapeutic values of music apply to many experiences in life. The author illustrates how exercise, relaxation, controlled breathing, and sensory stimulation are enhanced by the use of music in childbirth education classes, labor and delivery, nursery, postpartum, and in the home. Charts provide suggestions of musical selections that may be used as well as a guide to tempo and intensity. Adaptations to the clinical setting are also illustrated.
