Singing May Help Women to Recover from Postnatal Depression
According to a recent study, singing in a group may significantly help new mothers to recover from postnatal depression.
For their study, a team of scientists analyzed data of 134 new mothers received during the first forty weeks of motherhood. The women were divided into three groups dedicated to different workshops. One of the workshops included such activities as listening and learning new songs, as well as creating them.
Lead researcher Dr Rosie Perkins from the Centre for Performance Science in London, says: “Postnatal depression is debilitating for mothers and their families, yet our research indicates that for some women something as accessible as singing with their baby could help to speed up recovery at one of the most vulnerable times of their lives.”
