Increased Strength and a More Harmonic Rhythm of Uterine Contractions
One of the feared complications during labor is insufficient strength in uterine contractions.

In this study three groups of women with an initial uterine inactivity were investigated:
one group (11 women) was treated with re­lax­ing Medical Resonance Therapy Music®, a con­trol group A (11 women) listened to music of Mozart – Symphony No. 28 and Coronation Mass – and a control group B (11 women) did not listen to any music at all.

The music treatment was started in the first phase of labor. Strength and rhythm of uter­ine contractions were measured three times for about 10 minutes: shortly before listening to the music, in the middle of the one hour music treatment and shortly after finishing the treatment.

Medical Resonance Therapy Music® Group

Significant changes could only be docu­mented in this group: the initial weak con­trac­tions of the uterus increased in strength by 60% on average and got more harmonious in rhythm.
Control Group A and B

No significant changes in strength and rhythm of uterine contractions were found.
