The Care You Need

The solution We Provide

Soothers in Healthcare

Evidence-based research shows that music therapy promotes healthy brain function and is key to premature infant’s developmental milestones. Hearing soothing sounds, music and their mother’s voice can help stimulate an infant’s neurological response to de-stress. With Soothers, healthcare facilities and hospitals can now utilize these findings to improve patient satisfaction and overall health. Because infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) need not only medical support but emotional support, we can bring them one step closer to being released and going home where they belong.

Benefits of Soothers

Enables Essential Child Developmental Milestones

Sound therapy and personalized voice messages are proven to help NICU infants relax, which improves their feeding and empowers their development process.

Supports Parents Attempts to Bond with Their Baby

While the infant is in the NICU, parents can use Soothers to comfort their child with the sounds of their voices. This provides both the parents and baby the opportunity to bond when they cannot physically be together.

Improves Patient Satisfaction

Research-based literature proves that music therapy and personalized voice messages can help infants in the NICU recover faster. This benefits the infant, its parents, and the dedicated staff committed to nursing their patients so they can spend less time at the hospital and more time at home where they belong.
