How ‘The Lullaby Project’ Supports Perinatal Mental Health and Parent-Child Wellbeing

Wednesday 15th June 1 pm – 2.30 pm
Delivered by Live Music Now Wales 

Live Music Now’s ‘The Lullaby Project‘ is a fantastic engagement model for health boards looking to address perinatal mental health issues and inequalities in maternity and women’s health services. The Lullaby Project pairs mothers with professional musicians to work together over a series of workshops to create their own unique lullaby, which is then professionally recorded and performed live at a celebratory event.

Join us online on Wednesday 15th June (1-2:30pm) and learn about the project’s impact in Wales, delivered in partnership with Swansea Bay University Health Board, Flying Start Neath Port Talbot, Operasonic at the Tonna Mother and Baby Unit and in two community settings in Port Talbot and Gwaun Cae Gurwen.

Our project evaluator Kerry Wilson, Head of Research at the Institute of Cultural Capital at Liverpool John Moores University, will share her research findings from the pilot projects, highlighting important outcomes. You will also hear from health workers and musicians who supported the participants.

The Lullaby Project was originally developed by Carnegie Hall in New York and is underpinned by 10 years of research which demonstrates the positive impact the project has on maternal health, childhood development and family bonding. With funding from Arts Council Wales, Live Music Now has successfully adapted the model for project delivery with NHS and community partners.  We are now in a position to roll out the Lullaby Project as a successful perinatal support and engagement model, working with more health boards and NHS partners to co-produce projects.
