The Lullaby Project pairs pregnant women and new mothers and fathers with professional artists to write and sing personal lullabies for their babies, supporting maternal health, aiding child development, and strengthening the bond between parent and child. In New York City, the project reaches parents in healthcare settings, homeless shelters, high schools, foster care, and at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. Extending across the country and through several international programs, the Lullaby Project enables partner organizations to support families in their own communities.
