  • Music Therapy

    Music therapy is provided by a board certified music therapist and uses evidenced-based music interventions to address a variety of goals for infants and their families admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Music therapy sessions are provided at the bedside and may include live music, lullaby writing, recording parent voices, relaxation or multi-modal stimulation with singing.

    Music therapy supports developmental and family-centered care models by providing infants and families with unique way of connecting with their infant through music during intensive hospitalization. Music therapy research with premature infants has shown to have a positive impact on physiologic measures, sleep patterns, parent bonding, neurodevelopment and length of hospital stay.
