Background: Stress during pregnancy is common and has been linked to a range of poorer maternal and infant outcomes. Treatment options are few, however, due to concerns about the impact of medication on the developing fetus. Singing is an activity with stress reducing benefits that may be worth exploring. Aim: The aim of this pilot study was to explore the impact of singing lullabies during pregnancy.
