Losing a child is easily the hardest thing for any parent to come to terms with. To outlive your offspring can be just so difficult. There’s very little anyone can say or do to help console the poor people put in this position. But that doesn’t stop Brian Schreck from trying. Brian is a Musical Therapist based out of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and he’s been working on a project to make grieving parents’ lives just that little bit easier. How? Well, by recording songs that incorporate their lost children’s heartbeat.
“I had heard of other music therapists in the medical field adding recordings of in utero heartbeats to lullabies created with high-risk pregnant mothers to increase bonding between the mother and baby.” Says Brian. So if that’s true, why couldn’t a similar thing help the parents of children that have passed on?
