Commissioned by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute
Since 2011, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute has pioneered a lullaby program that pairs skilled musicians with expectant or recent mothers, many of whom are raising young families under stressful conditions such as single parenthood, temporary housing, or incarceration. The report, Lullaby: Being Together, Being Well, shares early, qualitative findings from ten lullaby projects in the New York City region. It calls on cultural organizations to invest in the well-being of young families. Despite our material wealth and medical know-how, the US ranks among the poorest performing nations when it comes to maternal and infant health.
