|Listening to lullabies, nature sounds and classical music can help women to feel calmer and less stressed during pregnancy, new research has shown.
Researchers from Kaohsiung Medical University in Taiwan divided a large group of pregnant women into two sections.
Some 116 pregnant women were given a selection of four music CDs to listen to throughout their pregnancy, while the other 120 received normal pregnancy care.
The four CDs contained lullabies, classical music, nature sounds and new age 'crystal music' featuring Chinese nursery rhymes.
