Sound of Birth –

Relaxing Sounds in Childbirth and Pregnancy

 

Your own voice can help you relax in childbirth!

 

Women naturally make sounds during labour, but these sounds are many times uncontrolled. We can learn to use relaxing sounds consciously and deliberately to ease pain during contractions.

Making conscious sounds relaxes the body, soothes the mind and induces deeper breathing. A tense body feels pain more sharply, and making relaxing sounds helps ease pain.

 

Singing is also good for babies. Songs do not have to be complicated; they can be humming and tender words. The important thing is the feeling that a singing mother and father convey to a baby.

 

In addition to expectant mothers and fathers the courses are suitable for midwives, clinic and hospital employees and other healthcare professionals as well as students. And for anybody who is interested in the relaxing aspects of human voice.

 

The teacher, pedagogy and doctor of music, Hilkka-Liisa Vuori has taught childbirth singing In Finland since 1998, for example in the natural childbirth ward at the Helsinki Maternity Hospital.  She is also a teacher of Gregorian chant and Meditative singing. Her ensemble, Vox Silentii, has made eleven cd´s including for example the chants for Medieval Female Saints, but also lullabies from Finland.

 

 

You do not need to know  “how to sing”.  Your own voice is perfectly enough!

 

If you want to learn how to sing in the birth, contact Hilkka-Liisa.
