PRENATAL SINGING

TO BOND WITH YOUR BABY BEFORE ITS BIRTH AND LEARN BREATHING AND RELAXATION TECHNIQUES THROUGH YOUR OWN VOICE

  • Singing for your well-being and that of the unborn child, appropriate repertoire
  • Bonding with your child in utero through sound vibrations and songs
  • Training your breathing so as to give pleasure, well before delivery
  • Expressing and channelling your emotions by vocalising them
  • Managing pain more easily
Prenatal singing appeared in the 1960s thanks to Marie-Louise Aucher, the singer and creator of Psychophonie. It has since grown and integrated multiple influences at the same time.


Singing for your well-being


Singing produces vibrations which spread throughout the body and massage both mother and child. It is a beneficial and soothing enveloping sound that the mother offers both to her baby and to herself, an enveloping sound in which the partner may actively participate for everyone's happiness.


Bonding with your child through singing


A baby can hear from week 20 and responds to external sounds from week 24. From that moment on, it recognises the surrounding voices and especially that of his mother. It hears bass sounds better than treble sounds which are filtered through the amniotic fluid.Often, the child responds clearly to the submersion in singing and to some songs in particular!



Mobilising your breathing and pelvis

Prenatal singing helps mothers-to-be to enjoy being physically mobile, notably at pelvis level, and to use the breathing and respiration in a beneficial way for overall relaxation, but also for the purpose of preparing for childbirth.


Expressing and channelling your emotions by vocalising them


During pregnancy, so-called positive emotions such as joy, but also so-called negative emotions such as sadness or anxiety, are often exacerbated. Singing and vocal expression provide relief from inner tension and emotions.


Managing pain more easily

The conscious use of breathing and vocalisation provide valuable help to manage pain, whether in the delivery room, or at any difficult moment in life.


What happens at a prenatal singing session?

The sessions are aimed at individuals, couples or small groups of 3-4 women.


They last one and a half hours.


They include body and postural work to awaken the body and voice, breathing and resonance exercises, relaxation exercises according to the needs of the woman, couple or group. Then the vocalisation of well-being, always gently, and simple songs: a small repertoire of cradle songs of the world and children's songs is selected and learnt.


To finish, a shared moment is proposed, which can be vocalised or spoken.
