A recent study has shown that the moms-to-be who listen to the lullabies, classical music and sounds of nature feel less stressed and have no fear about their pregnancy.

It has been believed that when the music tempo is set at 60 to 80 beats per minute, which is just equivalent to the human heart, it helps in reducing the stress and mental pressure which almost every woman feels during her pregnancy.
Music has always been used as a form of therapy to reduce stress, pain, and anxiety. Just take your example.

Music for pregnancy is a medicine that is taken without water and has no side effects with a 100% guaranteed results!!
And before I jump into the details, I want to share that music for pregnancy as a therapy is being widely discussed these days. Some gynecologist has come up and agreed to the fact that a fetus can receive vibrations during the latter part of the pregnancy. This vibration of music acts as external stimuli and has the power to influence the surroundings of the fetus. So, its 200% true that the baby can hear, feel and enjoy the beats inside the womb!
When the baby hears the soothing sounds of music inside the womb, it reacts, stimulates its ear, brain, body to begin preparation for sound and language comprehension. According to musicologist calm or classic music works best in this. And the most amazing thing you can do is to play the same song after the birth of your baby which you used to play in your third trimester of pregnancy to see your baby dancing on it!! Grin!!
The best music for pregnancy could be classical music or especially Mozart. Mozart, sonata is very mathematical in nature which can help to stimulate the brain of adults as well as infants at the time they are in their mother�s womb. Aside this, music also helps the moms to-be to connect with their child and make a strong bond before their birth!!
To add a little more information, Music has also worked wonders for the children with special cases as well. Music therapy for children can be adapted to suit the needs of nearly every child so that they can benefit in some way from music and help restore harmony and balance to their life.
Just to know, music therapy for children is a form of intervention which is used for children who have a problem with processing some information which has hindered their learning. It is an expressive therapy and is both an art and a science. Using music as a therapy goes back centuries where music was used as a form of healing. Even in biblical times, there is a record of music being used to rid evil!
