Very few parents expect to find themselves in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). It is a stressful, and often traumatic, experience for all involved.
Did you know that music therapy has been shown in research to help babies in the NICU? For instance, while babies are in the NICU, music therapy can help with:
- Regulating breathing
- Encouraging eating
- Increasing oxygen saturation
- Improving weight gain
- Reducing length of time in hospital
