Harmony Garden Music Therapy Services is here to help you create a beautiful recording of your baby’s heartbeat to remember this special time. 

When pregnant, the first time you hear your baby’s heartbeat is one of wonder. It gives comfort. It provides a concrete moment where you connect with your baby before ever holding him/her. Do you wish you could hear it again, after your baby is in your arms?

A recording of the baby’s heartbeat can be set to music of your choice for you to have as a keepsake of your pregnancy to celebrate your growing baby. A recording of the mother’s heartbeat can also be set to soothing music or lullabies to calm the new baby during nap times, and may remind the little one of the comfort of the womb.

How it works: 
The recording is taken with a fetal doppler, which is placed near the mother’s heart to record her heartbeat, and/or on the mother’s belly to record the baby’s heartbeat.  It touches the mother’s skin with a little bit of lubricating jelly, only takes a few moments, and is completely safe.  You must be at least 24 weeks pregnant to ensure a clear recording of your baby’s heartbeat. Contact us to get started.

Details:

  • One in-person meeting with a music therapist to record the heartbeats and discuss music that will go with the recordings. Additional communication about the song through email or by phone if necessary.
  • A digital recording of the baby’s heart beat (must be at least 24 weeks pregnant)
  • A digital recording of your chosen lullaby performed by you or your music therapist, with piano or guitar accompaniment, mixed with the sound of the baby’s heart beat.

Cost: $185
