Compared to full-term babies they have only a limited repertoire of behavior, are easily irritated, their reactions are in some ways disturbed and barely predictable. And their daily rhythm is also irregular. The relationship between premature babies and their parents on the station is like a vicious circle, as the mothers try to compensate for their child’s lack of responsiveness and attention with excessive stimulation, whilst the premature babies, on the other hand, withdraw as a form of self-protection. Therefore, our code of practice here reads: support of the baby’s own possibilities
, instead of assault with intensive medical intervention.
The use of Medical Resonance Therapy Music®
achieved the following results: breathing became calmer and more regular
, and respiratory pauses less frequent. Restless premature babies reacted immediately and fell asleep more quickly; the waking periods were shorter. Particularly after stress
situations (punctures, intubation, etc.) the children calmed down more quickly when under the influence of Medical Resonance Therapy Music®
than they would otherwise have done.”
