Made in Bristol England
Our trained music therapists work at the Bristol Children’s Hospital, providing music therapy to patients and their families. The therapists work on the neonatal intensive care unit supporting the babies and their families through their stay.
Being on the neo-natal intensive care unit (NICU) can be distressing for a baby and their parents. Our music therapists support the baby and family through this stage by playing music, creating sounds and singing songs to sooth and calm.
Parents can get involved in singing or making sounds which will help them to form a special bond with their baby. This music can be carried with them once their baby has left NICU.
Music therapy is recognised as a positive intervention for babies on the neo-natal ward and many studies have been done to show how it benefits patients and their families. We are very proud to have trained and experienced music therapists who work on NICU and we are extremely grateful to The Grand Appeal for funding this work.
