the effect

the power of music
As a musician, Graham always knew how powerful an effect rhythm has on people. Research shows the brain automatically responds to rhythm, ‘tuning in’ to it and causing us to respond by synchronising aspects of our behaviour to the tempo. The pay-off is an increased sense of well-being and relaxation.

Tests on bed-bound hospital patients have shown a reduction in blood pressure and stress. Research also shows that music therapy reduces heart rate, respiration and body temperature. It benefits mood and seems able to improve immune and hormone function. Babies start responding to music from 25 At twenty five weeks the baby can kick in time to music.

During pregnancy, especially the final trimester, there can be anxiety about the impending birth. Regular listening to Calmtime to help create a relaxed state during pregnancy can actually help during the birth itself. By the time your baby is born, your body will have learned to relax even more deeply to the music, as a conditioned response. Talking of learning …

Learning in the Womb
Mothers-to-be are encouraged to play music to their unborn babies because research has shown babies can respond to music and be soothed by soft music before and after birth. According to Dr. Thomas Verny, author or 'The Secret Life of the Unborn Child' your baby can kick in time to music from 25 weeks.

Before the Birth
You may be experiencing mixed feelings as the birth is approaching and wondering how you will handle the birth and motherhood. One thing that can help is to find a way of relaxing on a regular basis. With Calmtime you are not only relaxing yourself but also your baby. This can prepare your baby for something familiar after birth.

It has been recognised by many researchers, including the Royal College of Midwives, that music is very useful during labour as a distraction therapy. It breaks the vicious circle of fear-tension-pain. Music therapy is rapidly gaining acceptance in the UK as the evidence of its benefits grows. Regular listening during pregnancy strengthens the effect during labour. In hospital delivery rooms, music often is used to reduce a woman’s need for medication during childbirth.

When a young baby isn’t sleeping at all well it can affect the whole family. Obviously with new born babies disruption is expected but when the problem persists, sometimes for years, the results can be devastating.
The right musical stimulation can enhance development, encourage sucking and promote weight gain in newborn babies. Premature babies gain weight more quickly when music is played for them.

For first time mothers this can be a very stressful time. Some babies just seem to know what to do straight away, others, for whatever reason, don’t. Anxiety can affect the milk, how much is produced and the quality. Playing Calmtime during breast-feeding can have a very relaxing affect for both mother and baby. Relaxation aids successful feeding.
