As part of a broader project focused on bolstering maternal self-efficacy and psychological well-being through a peer support program that includes educational resources, the present research involves undertaking a scoping review. The aim of the scoping review is to consolidate evidence-based knowledge on the role of music listening for maternal well-being during the pre-natal and delivery periods. Preliminary search results suggest that music listening is effective in reducing mothers’ stress, anxiety, and depression levels, improving sleep quality, and is associated with an increase in maternal-infant bonding and maternal self-efficacy. The results have implications for developing a suite of online resources that will be available via a webapp. The goal is to include practical information as well as music-related activities that are easy to use.
