What is Birth Music Consultation?

Birth Music Consultation (BMC) is a consultation program taught by a board certified music therapist (MT-BC) trained in the Sound Birthing Music method. BMC teaches couples the philosophy and research behind Sound Birthing and equips couples to utilize music for the prenatal, labor, delivery, and immediate postpartum period.

What Is Sound Birthing?

The Sound Birthing method uses carefully designed music programs to create a birth experience that is calm, safe, and supportive for the mother and child. Sound Birthing music can be used to support you every step of the way in your birth.

Sound Birthing Music can:

  • support breathing

  • induce a calm and relaxed mental state

  • facilitates movement

  • evokes imagery

  • creates a ‘sound blanket’ during the process of labor

  • fosters mother and child connection

  • supports the mother and partner relationship

  • and much more….

How does BMC work?

Consultation is taught in person or via video conferencing. Each couple is taught the research and philosophy behind the Sound Birthing Method and granted access to the Sound Birthing playlists. The couples are given instruction on how to use the playlists and equipped with resources to utilize during labor and birth. The partner and/or doula are encouraged to facilitate the music.
