A clinic in Slovakia has found a way to comfort newborn babies that are separated from their mothers for treatment – classical music.
Using regular size headphones that appear gigantic on the babies’ tiny heads, the maternity ward in Kosice-Saca hospital has them listening to Mozart or Vivaldi.
During a recent visit to the clinic, chief Dr. Slavka Viragova said the music functions as a replacement for a mother’s voice and is helping the babies breathe regularly and maintain a proper heart beat.

Seeing the photos in the article make me cringe a little bit. Do the headphones really have to be that large? And please oh please tell me they are playing the music very softly.

Maybe I’m just a worrier and maybe I should lighten up.

And maybe not.
