Review


"Every child and mother should have this heartwarming music which offers valuable tools for enhancing the critical bonding and connection between mother and child. This bond is deeply healing. Safe in the Arms of Love gives parents clear heartfelt guidance that will help them reconnect with their baby every time they listen. Highly recommended!” — DEAN ORNISH, M.D., Founder and President, Preventive Medicine Research Institute Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

"Safe in the Arms of Love is simply beautiful. These songs go right to the heart, allowing you to relax, open up, and find an oasis of calm in your daily routine. My wish would be for every pregnant and nursing mother to bathe herself and her baby in these heartwarming songs." — CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, MD, Author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom Of Menopause and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

"Safe in the Arms of Love is an exceptional combination of beautiful music and inspiring information especially created to enhance the deep bond between parent and child. This thoughtful book and gentle resonance evoked by this music can help in the development of a secure attachment that will benefit the baby throughout his or her life." — MARSHALL KLAUS, MD, AND PHYLLIS KLAUS, MFT, LMSW, Authors, Your Amazing Newborn, Bonding and The Doula Book

"As every parent recognizes, there is an innate sense of rhythm in everychild. The constantly varying rhythms of heart beat and breath, tuned to mom’s emotions, supply a rich, 24/7 symphony in the womb. To no one’s surprise, research has shown a powerful impact of music on mood and the physiology of the human heart. Listening to Safe in the Arms of Love, I am profoundly reminded of the importance of protecting the sacred bond between newborn and mother, and providing music to complement an experience that will influence the course of a lifetime. This music is beautiful, gently uplifting and peaceful, and perfectly sets the mood for mother and baby to bond in a relaxed and emotionally supportive environment." — Steven F. Horowitz, M.D. Chief of Cardiology, Stamford Hospital, and Director of Integrative Cardiology, the Center for Health and Wellness

"As both a psychiatrist and mother, I can attest to the critical importance of healthy bonding. If you are a new parent, or about to be a new parent, drop everything and experience the beauty and impact of Safe in the Arms of Love. This is great music to support the bonding process and deepen the relationship between parents and newborn." — Hyla Cass , M.D., author of Eight Weeks to Vibrant Health

"When certain music is added to the chaotic newborn environment, it can become a 'settling embrace,' bringing a calming message of hope and self-confidence. Safe in the Arms of Love fills the gap many new parents experience of not having their mothers to help and advise them during this important transition. As a new grandmother, if I were unable to be there for my son and his wife, I would hope that someone would put Safe in the Arms of Love into their hands. It is nothing short of magical." — Bethany Hays M.D., OBGYN and Functional Medicine

"Every once in a while, a new body of work comes along that jumps beyond what has been done before. Safe in the Arms of Love is a powerful, tender and heart-opening mix of songs and music that moves the parent and cradles the child. In my work with men, this music has become a valuable tool in connecting them to their experience as a father as well as to their own inner child." — Stephen Johnson Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Director, Los Angeles Men’s Center

"As a mother who nursed four children and being a therapeutic musician myself, I love the ebb and flow of this recording, and I can easily imagine a mom and baby being drawn ever more deeply into peaceful connection. I was deeply touched by the tenderness of Lisa Rafel’s songs and the expressiveness of the singers’ performances." — Melinda Gardiner, RN , CMP, Executive Director, Music for Healing and Transition Program, Inc.

Safe in the Arms of Love: Deepening the Essential Bond with Your Baby is a wonderful book and CD combination designed to help parents and babies connect. I found lots of information in the book to be helpful, and in line with my beliefs of the importance of parent-child bonding.

Some advice for bonding included this list:

-Touch your baby, skin to skin

-Massage your baby

-Experience eye contact with your baby

-Sing and Speak in a tender way to your baby

-Play with your baby

The music CD is wonderful! Relaxing and peaceful, we turned it on as we cleaned up toys before dinner and my three year old wanted to keep it on as we ate!

I think this book and CD set would make a great gift for any expectant parent. I enjoyed the essays about becoming a mother and father, suggestions on specific ways to bond with your baby, and relaxing music to listen to!

For a soon to be momma or a new momma this really is a wonderful tool to help remind you to take a few minutes. Not only does it help make things in calmer in my house, because my children feed off my emotions, but it serves as a wonderful bedtime tool as well. When Coulter was born we put him down every night to music because we wanted to train him to sleep through anything (which we will regret in his teenager years), we regret that we didn't enforce this more with Corbin as he is the lightest sleeper :( I could literally vacuum Coulter's room after he went to sleep, with Corbin don't even walk by the door. I like the aspect that since this cd is so calming and both boys will calm to it I think it will help Corbin sleep better at night by putting him more peaceful.

I was recently in need of a new baby gift and stumped as to what to purchase since everything on the happy parents' registry had been acquired. I took a friend's recommendation to buy Safe in the Arms of Love and can't tell you how many positive comments I have received. I've gotten multiple emails from the mother and father saying how much they love the book and music; it has become part of their daily routine. If you are in need of a shower or baby gift or are a new parent yourself, I highly recommend this book.

Beautifully done important info for new parents. I gave this to three different new parents last year as shower/birth gifts after reading about it in our church magazine, "Science of Mind." Teaches the importance of bonding from the moment of birth and how to do it successfully.
