Lullabies in the Beginning of Life for Children and their Families in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (English)
This work, Lullabies in the Beginning of Life for Children and their Families in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, has been supported by Stockholm Coun-try Council’s Research Programme “Arts in Hospital and Care as Culture”.
The symbiotic relationship that is between the mother and her newborn child will easily be disturbed when the baby has to be treated in a respirator, incu-bator or if the child has malformations which make it more difficult for the parents to bond with their baby. From experience, music, and especially the human voice beside scent is a strong potential for recognition and sense of security for human beings. By giving parents support to establish a good relationship, the purpose is to encourage parents to sing for their newborn children. The overall aim with the project is to find a model to support par-ents to sing for their children which can be summarised in a comprehensible leaflet, a leaflet that can be distributed when the families arrive at the ward. This has been implemented together with the staff in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, Karolinska University Hospital.
The staffs have been given questionnaires about their attitudes and knowledge about parental singing. There have also been two meetings to-gether with the project leader during the winter and spring 2006. The model for supporting parents to sing to their babies (“parental singing”) is based on research in the fields of musicology, music therapy, medical science and psychology, but also on the results from the questionnaires and from the thoughts and attitudes that have been discovered during the meetings. The leaflet, “parental singing”, and the staffs model to encourage “parental singing” are a part of this result.
