Many conflicting theories have put sound healing for pregnancy in a bad light. A lot of the negative stories that surround pregnancy and sound healing don’t come from personal experiences, but rather, hearsay and fear.
In this post, we’ll talk about sound healing for pregnancy.
Pregnancy can be one of the best times in your life and the most tiring. The body goes through a lot of changes that impact your emotional and mental states as well, therefore, it’s very important for pregnant individuals to make a lot of time for relaxation. 💆🏼♀️
Sound healing has been used for expectant mothers for many centuries and today, there is a growing number of women who are experiencing the benefits of sound healing.
The Tomatis Method 👨🏻⚕️
Several studies have been conducted regarding the effects of sound therapy on expectant mothers and the child in the womb. Dr. Alfred Tomatis, an ear specialist 👂🏻, was one of the first people who researched what the fetus can hear in the womb and the impact of the mother’s relationship with the fetus in the emotional development of the child.
Out of all our five senses, sound 🔉 is the first sense that fully develops in the womb. At 4 1/2 months, the fetus can hear and the first sound that they hear is in high frequency, which is above 8,000Hz.
A study by Dr. Tomatis, known as The Tomatis Method and the Genesis of Listening, found that “the mental and physical state of the mother during pregnancy has a significant impact on the child.”
Therefore, the benefits that the mother gets from sound therapy is passed on to the child in her womb.
Furthermore, the study was conducted in the Maternity Care Unit 🏥 in France 🇫🇷. The study gained a huge number of positive results compared to negative feedback. Later on, the study was conducted in another hospital in France that involved 1,150 women divided into three groups.
The study found that sound therapy has helped decrease the labor time of women who underwent the Tomatis method. Moreover, the babies from the Tomatis group had higher birth weight along with higher APGAR (Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, and Respiration) scores.
Sound Healing Therapy 🔔
One way to help you relax during pregnancy is through sound healing. There are many types of sound healing that you can read here.
And one of the most famous forms of sound healing is the Tibetan sound bowl.
A Tibetan sound bowl can stimulate the body, mind, and chakras. The frequency that comes from the sound healing tool can penetrate the body’s bone and water, therefore it releases any blockages that you might have.
It’s an emotional release, which is perfect for pregnancy when hormones are in overdrive. The emotional release from a Tibetan sound bowl brings balance to the mother and child in the womb. And this results in a shared union of frequency that is magical and refreshing for mother and child.
There are now plenty of practitioners that can provide expectant mothers sound healing therapy. However, if you can’t find one in your area, you can always get audios online to listen to from the comforts of your own home.
Doing sound therapy on your own is easy — just put the headphones 🎧 on your ears and listen to it. Or, you can listen to it via Bluetooth speakers 🔉.
The good thing about sound therapy is that you can use it while you’re asleep 😴 or awake. And this means it doesn’t have to interrupt your day. You can listen to soothing audios while you’re driving or basically doing other things.
In spite of the benefits of sound healing for pregnancy, expecting mothers still need to consult with their doctor first.
