Melodies for Mums
Culturally diverse songs to encourage bonding with the baby and engagement with others
Melodies for Mums is a ground-breaking singing service for mothers with postnatal depression.
The programme is based on pioneering research carried out in 2016 by Royal College of Music and Imperial College. They found that a 10-week programme of singing and music-making for mothers with postnatal depression (PND) could be a viable alternative to traditional approaches of support.
