Music and Motherhood 

Although there are increasing clinical evidence for the effectiveness of using targeted singing groups to reduce symptoms of postpartum depression, little work has been done to test the translatability of this kind of intervention in different linguistic and cultural contexts. Music and Motherhood was an invitation addressed to young mothers dealing with negative emotions, sadness and overwhelming feelings to participate in a pilot project that explores the positive impact that music has on our mental and emotional health. For 10 weeks, guided by the music leads Alexandra Făgărășan and Bertóti Johanna, two groups of mothers from Cluj had access to free singing workshops entirely tailored to serve them and their needs. 

The pilot project organized by the Cluj Cultural Centre was initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO Europe) and the Nordic Fund for Culture, and it was carried out within the CultureForHealth project, co-financed by the European Commission, in partnership with: Culture Action Europe, Trans Europe Halles, Central Denmark Region, The Northern Dimension Partnership for Culture, and Društvo Association.
