Music during pregnancy as a health resource - a step forward in practice?

Arts & Humanities Open Access Journal
Maria Romana Salazar, Ricardo de Albuquerque


This letter to the editor responds to the study on “Music as a health resource in pregnancy: A cross-sectional survey study of women and partners in Ireland” and underscores the demand for increased music-focused resources in perinatal care. While recognizing the positive impacts of music, the absence of statistical conclusions is acknowledged as a limitation, emphasizing the need for scientifically proven outcomes. The letter advocates for an open-minded approach to change in healthcare and highlights the imperative need for training investment in non-pharmacological techniques, particularly music, to enhance pregnancy and postpartum care.
