Anyone expecting a child wants to provide them with the best possible conditions during pregnancy. This can include listening to and making music. That is shown by a scientific study which started in September 2021 in collaboration with obstetricians, scientists and members of the Berliner Philharmoniker. Until early summer 2022, the study investigated the effect of creative musical activities on pregnancy. 

In the 2022/23 season, the second round concluded with 70 pregnant women, some of whom had a troubled history, such as premature birth, artificial insemination or a diagnosis of a potentially ill child. Concerts with members of the Berliner Philharmonker and guests as well as creative workshops were accompanied by non-invasive medical examinations and scientific surveys. The 2nd year also concluded with a concert for the whole family in autumn 2023.

The results of the studies will be published in the course of the 2023/24 season.
