“There is compelling evidence that music can enhance parental wellbeing, yet to date there have been few attempts to bring together current endeavours in the field. Music and Parental Mental Wellbeing provides readers from music, health, and beyond, with a new and comprehensive opportunity to consider how music can support parental mental wellbeing. Drawing on recent ground-breaking practice, research, and evaluation the book illuminates how music can support mental wellbeing in pregnancy and the postnatal period, childbirth and perinatal hospital settings, and in the early years.”

Louise Brown, who works as a Specialist Attachment Practitioner and Music Therapist at The Family Place, has co-written a chapter in a wonderful book about music and parental wellbeing. Lou has co-written Chapter 7 with a Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, and Consultant Music Therapist based on her previous work in maternity care at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
