LULLABIES (2011)

“It was rather like a sigh, calming and relaxing.  The atmosphere on the ward changed perceptively almost immediately…for many dads it gave them the chance to be able to cradle their baby for longer…lullaby sessions support the development of attachment between mum and her baby, as well as helping the whole family become closer.”
