CRUZ P., Sandra; PIROVICH B., Hugo  y  PENA T., Eloísa. LA MUSICA EN EL TRABAJO DE PARTO. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2003, vol.68, n.1, pp.68-74. ISSN 0048-766X.

This proposal supports the belief that during Natural Childbirth, it is necessary for the woman in labor to be in an intimate, quiet place with a controlled auditory environment. Baroque musica is played during the Latent phase of labor for its noble aesthetic virtues-auditory and technical musical characteristics, assisting with the relaxation and well being of the woman in labor. It is preferable to have a quiet and controlled auditory environment in the birthing room during the Active phase of labor. The physiological fundamentals involved in the application of this method are based upon the relationship between Baroque musica and the production of B-endorphins. Moreover, eliminating parasite noises in the birthing room contributes to the reduction of chemical stress mediators in the mother. Both occurrences facilitate the balance of the mothers's axis (hypothalamic - hypophyseal - adrenal), translating into greater comfort; furthemore, strenghtening the bond with the child in his or her fetal state and during the birthing process

Palabras clave : Natural childbirth; latent fase; active phase; baroque music; dotted quarted 60.
