Listening Program for Pregnancy

Magical Garden

Magical Garden
Primary CD supporting birth and inter-uterine experience. Track 1's natural sounds of birds & fast-flowing streams re-create our sense of connection with the natural world. Re-establishes the flow of sensory information through the body, clearing emotional 'blockages', creating greater contact with and acceptance of self. Track 2 promotes a contemplative state of solitude as the call of the loon bird and accompanying storm creates an evocative, 'magical' atmosphere!

Music for Children CD

Music for Children
For developing individuality & personal expression in children & adults. In freeing up limiting structures that influence/govern your behavior, you're less likely to impose them on your children. In pregnancy, this music particularly helps clear behavioral patterns relating to fear and control - toward yourself or others - helping the birth process unfold naturally. Supports your preparation, emotionally and energetically, for childbirth by freeing up the 3rd chakra (solar plexus) and strengthening overall energy flow.

Helps develop: emotional stability and well-being, confidence, communication and self-expression. Facilitates a more integrated connection with your whole body during the earlier phases of labour.

New Heart CD

New Heart
Pregnancy is a period of many changes in our lives - new beginnings, endings, expectations - sometimes we need help integrating them all. In providing emotional support throughout the whole process for you & your partner, this music particularly focuses movement in the chest/heart region. Greater emotional stability leads to lower stress levels, deeper relaxation and more continuity.

Achieving Results
Our music requires regular listening to achieve results. In most cases, we suggest a minimum period of 1-2 months, one CD per day until you are familiar with the music's effects, or more frequently if desired. Benefits are achieved whether listening on headphones or as background music - the only difference is the length of time it takes to achieve results.

Common Listening Reactions
As tensions within your system begin to' move in response to listening, initially you may experience temporary discomfort. You may also experience reactions such as tingling, heat or increased tension, an emotional release, sensations of boredom or a complete rejection of the music altogether. You might perceive these reactions as 'negative' but they usually pass quickly. If this happens to you, we advise listening for shorter periods of time and at a lower volume, starting from the beginning of the CD each time. By continuing to listen, your body quickly becomes accustomed to the movement and these reactions then pass.

Choosing Your Headphones:
Good quality noise-cancelling headphones are recommended because they:

  • reduce external noise, thus reducing your listening volume
  • enhance benefits of the psychoacoustic effects in the recordings
  • protect your hearing - very important!

Caution: 'Earbud' headphones increase distortion, offer a more limited frequency range and encourage listening at higher volumes because of ambient noise 'leakage'. Prolonged exposure to loud volume can cause stress-related tension & potential long-term hearing loss

Using Media Players:
If you want to 'rip' your CD to load the tracks onto your media player, we recommend copying the files in .wav format. Whilst .mp3 is a commonly used format for ripping music files, the resulting compression reduces the range of frequencies contained within the original recording and reduces the quality of the file you end up listening to. You may not notice the difference but your body will!
