With the festive period looming I felt that the topic of this paper ‘singing lullabies’ resonated with the custom of singing at Christmas time but more than that the joy and peace of singing regardless of the festivity is far reaching. I am not a singer (I wish I was) but people who do sing tell me how up lifting and happy it makes them feel. There can be no doubt that singing and the feel good factor are synonymous with a sense of wellbeing and good health. Indeed, Carolan et al (2011) provide extensive supporting literature of the positive effects of maternal singing and music therapy on infants and of note the benefits to preterm infants within their paper (p2). So I present to you for this issue of research unwrapped a detailed appraisal of the above research paper alongside a warm gesture of respect for those of you who can sing!
